Tampa General Hospital uses BMC Automated Data Solution

BMC's Control-M helps Tampa General automate data processes for enhanced health care and coordination.

BMC and Tampa General Hospital (TGH) have given details of an unprecedented collaboration between TGH and many other hospitals in the Tampa Bay region to monitor the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) bed count, ventilators, and other resources needed to fight the coronavirus pandemic, with Control-M, the market-leading application workflow orchestration solution from BMC.


Tampa General Hospital serves as the data aggregator for the 51 participating hospitals across West Center Florida. With the Control-M solution, near real-time capacity and demand insights provide a critical overview of the region's ability to respond to the pandemic – resulting in a huge benefit to the entire community. The unprecedented cooperation among West Florida's hospitals allows them to participate together for the benefit of patients through the Florida West Coast Regional Data Exchangea joint interactive dashboard that shows COVID-19 real-time data from the 51 hospitals.

"We are able to share data with hospitals across the region to monitor and respond to the demands for critical care beds, staff, and supplies," Dr. Peter Chang, Vice President of Care Navigation at Tampa General Hospital. "Ultimately, the patients continue to receive world class care; even in the most challenging of situations."

The Control-M solution supports TGH in automating the aggregation, analytics, and reporting of operational insights in a fraction of the time needed previously. In fact, with the implementation of Control-M, clinical data is now available to the Executive Leadership Team up to five hours earlier than before its introduction. This improves patient care navigation and collaboration among clinical departments.

TGH also uses the Control-M solution for multiple critical dashboards that provide a near real-time view of test results, patient status, personal protective equipment (PPE), and ICU capacity. These dashboards also allow TGH to forecast hospital resources and provide "what-if" analyses used to anticipate PPE impact.

"Helping our customers accelerate their journey to becoming an Autonomous Digital Enterprise is our mission and promise," said Gur Steif, President of Digital Business Automation at BMC. "We are proud to support an innovative leader like Tampa General Hospital in their efforts to respond quickly to the COVID-19 challenge, to mobilize the broader regional health care network with data-driven insights, and to provide world-class care for the people of Florida."
