Tonight, I will be attending T4G’s Geekfest event in Toronto!
I will be there to show off my idea called QTime. The idea is focused on interfacing with existing hospital systems to help determine estimates wait times by triage level. In addition to the public facing component, QTime would provide staff and administrators with real time metrics and information to help them identify and correct issues before they get out of hand.
I know a lot of you are interested in this idea, but can’t make it here for the event.
If you are one of those people, do not worry – simply visit the link below to see the QTime prototype in action!
Note: The data feed stopped on March 9th; however, I will keep the prototype up for a while for anyone who wants to see it!
Remember to try the link using both your computer and mobile device! The same page will render differently based on your device.
When using your computer, you will see a dashboard website giving current and historical ER information for a specific hospital. A snapshot at the top provides quick access to important metrics (and recent target trends). Waiting room queues and estimates wait times are broken out by triage level. Color coding is used to identify estimated wait times that would exceed targets. Charts showing average wait times for each triage level and actual waits are included at the bottom.
Mobile Device View
When using your mobile device, you will see a mobile optimized website that demonstrates showing estimated wait times for multiple hospitals. The wait times are even broken out by triage level, which would need be explained as part of an educational campaign:
If QTime makes the cut (selected in the top 3), I will have a chance to present to the audience for a chance to win $10,000! Be sure to keep your fingers crossed.
