In many EDs, patients often suffer for hours in a crowded waiting room before they are treated. After some time, many leave before the appropriate treatment, potentially putting their health and safety at risk while costing hospitals revenue.

When the process is optimized, a hospital’s ED can accommodate a high volume of patients. Meanwhile, an inefficient clinical documentation system can hinder flow and volume drastically.
