Addressing Rural Healthcare Disparities with Patient Movement Data

Posted

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) collected and monitored statewide disease activity and resource utilization through Motient’s Mission Control, a web-based patient movement platform which tracked facility capacity status. In 2021, the platform was used by 122 Kansas hospitals to facilitate more than 5,000 patient transfers to 209 destination facilities, some of which were outside of the state.

KDHE used this patient movement data to help educate state policymakers on the capacity limits of the ecosystem, objectively demonstrating the need for action. The data helped leaders justify and enact mitigations to expand hospital and long-term care center capacity, including engaging the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Veterans Health Administration to provide short-term medical treatment for transferred patients.

I have really enjoyed working with the knowledgeable and innovative staff within Mission Control! They have observed and created a dashboard that significantly meets our data abstraction needs. This information is in real time and we can access the data points we need very quickly. Mission Control has saved me hours of manual abstraction and I can now present this information to our physicians and leadership through creative charts and graphs. At Newman Regional Health, we are very excited to integrate Mission Control into our daily workflow and look forward to the valuable information the dashboard can provide!

We started using Mission Control a few months ago because we were struggling with finding patient placement and transportation. Mission Control helped with that significantly. MC is very user friendly! All staff has been so kind and helpful! They are always prompt with assisting us and do a great job in keeping us up to date and informed on any progress they’re making whether that be with a phone call or a message through mission control. They continue to work until transport has been found! We would be lost without them!
