Waiting times and additional information
EchoSOS partner hospitals inform users in the emergency app and on site about the current occupancy rate on the ward. This allows people to switch to emergency units with more free capacity. As a result, patients have shorter waiting times and hospital staff are relieved.
Half of all Swiss hospitals are already connected to the EchoSOS network. With the information on current capacity utilisation on site, free emergency units are better utilised and overcrowded hospitals are relieved.
