The ALTA Platform™
SAFE & SMART
Equipped with an array of sensors, the smart device ensures safety above all else, while being easy to use. The ALTA Platform communicates with the user via a graphical interface while monitoring proper status of safety systems such as wheel locks and patient guards.
The ALTA Platform transmits device status and utilization data to the cloud, giving facilities key insights into workflows.
The device allows the user to interact via portable remotes, fixed intuitive buttons and graphical displays on both sides of the device.
EASY TO OPERATE
Platform extends from either side to transfer patients on and off the device, while also having controls on both sides.
The comes equipped with powered wheel(s) that make the device easy to move and maneuver.
The ALTA Platform has motorized columns that allow it to adjust its height and tilt as needed.
Why We Developed ALTA
The Problem With Transfers
Exerting back-breaking effort: 60% of nurses are battling strain-related injuries. Undignified and poor patient experience.
2-8 nurses required per transfer.
Facilities have no insight as to how efficiently and safely transfers are conducted making it impossible to make improvements or take corrective action.
$20B per year in injury and labor costs associated with transfers.
$4B per year in lost revenue in CT suites due to slower processing caused by patient transfers.
Staff shortages and high turnover are negatively impacting clinical efficiency and healthcare outcomes. The ALTA Platform improves staff retention while allowing staff to do-more-with-less and focus on high-value tasks. With the data analytics module, facilities gain valuable information on optimizing workflows to boost clinical efficiency and utilization.
Transfers expose staff to musculoskeletal strain leading to career-ending injuries. By automating the transfer process, the ALTA Platform eliminates this source of injury. The ALTA Platform also reduces the burden of staff by allowing them to conduct transfers independently, without relying on additional staff.
Conventional methods of transfers are invasive, uncomfortable and unappealing. The ALTA Platform’s unique architecture delivers a comfortable, safe and dignified experience for patients. Further, patient outcomes are improved as front-line staff are able to focus on providing compassionate care to patients, instead of conducting the physical task of transfers.
