St. Joseph’s Hospital Implements Central Logic Patient Transfer Suite

Central Logic Healthcare Systems, a provider of web-based applications to healthcare facilities, has announced that St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center, Phoenix, has implemented its patient transfer center software, ForeFront Transfer.

ForeFront Transfer is designed to streamline inter-facility patient transfers and facilitate critical transfer information for physicians and hospital administrative personnel. It enables hospital and medical staff to take physician referral calls and correlate patient admissions enabling quick, accurate decisions based on individual patients' needs, doctor availability and the facility's ability to accommodate a new patient.

Leigh Naig, executive director of revenue services at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center, said: "Using ForeFront Transfer will help us efficiently coordinate each transfer request by seamlessly connecting sending physicians with St. Joseph's medical staff. It will also give us improved reporting capabilities so we can make certain our transfer process is providing maximum benefit for both patients and staff."
