When you see the doctors standing in front of the whiteboard with all of the patients and surgeries mapped out on Grey’s Anatomy, that’s real life. Would you try to run your company from a whiteboard?
Xylemed thinks you shouldn’t either. They’ve created a program that will replace the whiteboards hospital use to track their patients and surgeries.
Nursing supervisors use a hand-written markerboard to keep track of the current roster of patient names, doctors treating them, procedures they’re undergoing, and even critical contact information. Xylemed hopes to bring this into the 21st century with a software application that can replace all that scribbling and erasing. It’s already being used at several locations, including Harborview Medical Center and the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.
