Timing is everything in Patient Transportation. When Crothall paired with Mount Sinai Beth Israel – Petrie Division, patient transportation averaged less than one an hour. Using productivity analytics and flexible staff scheduling, the rate is now over three trips per hour. Even nurses who carried their own samples to the labs have shifted to using Crothall’s Patient Transportation system - that means more time at the bedside. The gain in productivity also came with a huge reduction in costs - Mount Sinai’s transportation budget dropped $80,000 dollars. It really does pay to be productive.
