Automated Patient Acuity solutions have been proven to assist healthcare organisations with patient care, safety and quality. Furthermore, they can assist with increased employee satisfaction and reduced organisational costs. Patient Acuity is the measurement of the level of nursing care required by a patient. An acuity-based staffing system controls the number of nurses on a shift based on the patients’ needs. For example, patients may range from requiring minimal care on the day they are departing a hospital, to needing a dedicated nurse 24/7 after a serious procedure.
