KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas is investing in a way to better care for patients, COVID-19 and otherwise, as hospitals continue to operate at full capacity.
Mission Control is designed to coordinate the movement of patients between hospitals.
The interface helps hospitals find where beds and specific kinds of care are available in the state, and identify a means of transportation to get patients there.
Mission Control also enables health care facilities to see which locations are accepting COVID-19 patients and patients with other needs.
Norman said the state has already processed 3,200 transfers through more than 30 facilities using the interface.
KDHE is actively onboarding more hospitals, Norman said.
