McKesson to acquire NZ's Emendo
CapPlan is used in a number of hospitals in Australia and New Zealand to help forecast patient demand and manage patient flow and staff capacity.
It has been installed at Christchurch Hospital for a number of years to provide daily capacity reporting, theatre modelling and accident and emergency capacity. It also provides the bed management and planning capability for the hospital, and is being rolled out to the hospital's nurses operations centre to develop a facility to link nursing rosters to patient capacity predictions.
CapPlan has been used at Royal Adelaide Hospital in South Australia since 2007 and is used as a patient flow and bed management tool. It has since been implemented at the Lyell McEwin, Modbury, Queen Elizabeth and Women’s and Children’s hospitals and Flinders Medical Centre to provide an 'at a glance' view of the future status and expected staffing and resource requirements for in-patient and emergency wards.
McKesson plans to use CapPlan as an extension of its enterprise intelligence and workforce management solutions suites.
