2008 Winner Profile

Ohio State University Medical Center

Project Description:
The medical center deployed Patient Throughput, a Web-based patient-tracking tool, to more efficiently manage patient visits to its outpatient clinic. The organization chose to develop a custom solution, integrated with Oracle business-intelligence tools, rather than purchase a commercial clinic management system that lacked comprehensive BI capabilities. The average time it takes to check in patients and get them ready to see their doctors has improved 24 percent, and the organization is saving tens of thousands of dollars annually due to increased efficiency.
