Columna Flow Task Management is developed to support and optimise task management for caregivers and service staff in a modern hospital. The solution enables staff to quickly access and update task information on the go.
Task status and responsibilities are reflected in real-time on coordinator screens so that department managers and coordinators can follow the current situation and near-future development. A better overview ensures better planning and limits the number of disruptions, delays, and communication errors.
Clear task overviews
Columna Flow Task Management is the optimal system for ordering and performing daily tasks across the hospital. The solution provides overview for caregivers and service staff who can follow assigned tasks and – with a single tap on the screen – share information about task progress and status.
Whether it is the resident physician who can see all patients in their care or it is service assistant who has just picked their next task, Columna Flow supports a streamlined and informed task management that promotes a calm, structured, and ultimately better patient care.
More efficient workflows
Having a clear overview of tasks and their statuses is the first step towards streamlined workflows, which ultimately increases efficiency. Columna Flow boosts this positive development through a decentralised task distribution, where caregivers and service staff pick their tasks from a prioritised list. Tasks are sorted by various parameters such as proximity from own location, staff competencies, or team affiliation.
As a result, the tasks are distributed based on an efficiency principle, where knowledge on the current load and optimal hospital processes helps optimise the workflow. All to save time and effort during the day.
Improved cross-disciplinary coordination
Columna Flow promotes inter-departmental communication which makes the solution an important factor in the coordination of planned, ad hoc, and urgent tasks. For caregivers, the real-time updates provide overview of ordered tasks and their status, as well as assigned task responsibilities. For coordinators and management, the solution offers insights into the current load and performance, reflecting potential bottlenecks that can be addressed before they develop into a real problem.
The solution inter-connects departments and disciplines, promoting a more streamlined, structured, and professional hospitalisation from arrival to discharge.
Based on data on the current performance, deviations, capacity, and delays, Columna Flow provides management with a valuable and data-based starting point for optimising the workflows in and across departments.
