Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
🇺🇸 (Posted Jun 5 2018)
About the company
The mission of TeleTracking is simple: no patient should ever have to wait for the care they need.
As the world leader in patient flow solutions, TeleTracking is more than a healthcare technology company. Industry experts, process consultants and thought leaders in the healthcare space, TeleTracking is delivering reportable and proven outcomes impacting hospitals and healthcare systems all over the world.
TeleTracking began over twenty-five years ago as a solution to solve the bed turnover problem using what was found in every patient room: a telephone. Expanding, growing and changing, now with a portfolio of end-to-end patient flow software solutions, and proven best practices, the name TeleTracking describes the journey of the past, current and future. As hospital enterprises spend hundreds of millions to install systems that move patient records, TeleTracking is positioned to add significant value to that spend by offering an interdisciplinary, real-time system that moves people and resources more efficiently and safely than ever before.
WHO WE ARE
For every hour patients wait for care, they face objectively worse outcomes. TeleTracking believes it is unacceptable that patients are not able to access the care they need, when they need it, due to operating inefficiencies and unnecessary cost barriers. Our mission is simple, to ensure no one waits for the care they need. Named one of Becker's "Great Places to Work" and a Pittsburgh Business Times “Corporate Citizenship Award” winner, TeleTracking delivers extraordinary outcomes that have been the subject of study by the RAND Corporation, and is the perennial KLAS Patient Flow Category Leader.
