Today, getting a patient into a hospital bed is a largely manual process. It involves a number of different people all individually contacting and checking with each other.

The process involves a number of actors with a number of steps passing information from one part of an organisation to another, telephonically. Without any free information sharing necessarily the same process gets repeated, wasting everybody's time.
In general, this problem of information sharing is addressed for only one part; many hospitals have a simple bed tracking tool. This considers only one of the limiting factors (available bed) and doesn’t address other areas (such as patient coverage, availability of other facilities, etc.).
These other factors are left to individual staff members to be aware of and make judgements about. This approach can work in other sectors such as hotels, where bed availability is the only factor, but isn’t sufficient for hospitals.

BdIn is a different solution to evaluate patient admission availability in different hospitals/health care providers within an area.

TODAY

#INSURERS

Call around one by one every hospital to see if they have availability.

#HOSPITALS

Operators from the admissions department get lots of calls asking for placement. If they don’t pick up the phone, it rings to their supervisor and ultimately to the director. Meanwhile they have to continue doing their daily work (eg: inpatient/outpatient census).

#PATIENTS

Passive role. Calls the ambulance and wait until their insurance company tells them where they are to be transferred. Sole receptor of information.

BDIN

#INSURERS

Send a single request for admission through our platform.

#HOSPITALS

Will receive a notification when there’s a patient looking for placement that satisfies its admission status, which they will have to accept or decline.

#PATIENTS

Empowered. More active role in the decision making of where they want to be transferred to.

We all have a story of why we care about a better quality of healthcare.
This is mine:

Sometime ago my father suffered from a respiratory episode and the doctor we called to our house suggested he be admitted to hospital. After hours at home waiting to be notified where he was to be transferred to, we decided to go to the nearest emergency department. 40 hours and lot of paperwork later, we found a place in an ICU near our house. So we asked ourselves over and over, ‘What happens with those patients that do not have a good health insurance plan?’ ‘How could it be that there is not one single available bed in the whole city?’
