Medecipher has developed an early detection software and services platform for Emergency Department leaders that delivers a short-term ROI by reducing flex staffing costs and recapturing walk-out volume. ​It is a rules-based platform that helps hospitals proactively manage the day-to-day variability in patient demand. It blends predictive modeling technology with staffing decision technology and improves both short-term and long-term decision-making by providing actionable insights for the day-to-day “spot market” management of clinical operations to longer staffing planning horizon.
