How will SMA benefit me as a nurse unit manager / hospital CEO?
Increased efficiencies within private hospitals are paramount to ensure maximised margins and quality care. SMA enables hospitals to take back control of patient movements due to the confidence that if the patient is booked with SMA then the patient will be transferred on-time.
Maximise access to specialists. Many medical specialists refuse ambulance patients due to their busy schedule and the inevitability of patients being hours late cannot be accommodated. SMA allows medical specialists to keep to their schedule ensuring a healthy relationship with the facility.
Stop re-booking appointments. Many specialist and imaging appointments are hard to arrange due to the shortage in some specialties. This may mean that patients wait weeks or months in order to have an appointment. SMA ensures patients do not suffer through appointments being missed and the inability to re-schedule.
