Software strives to shrink emergency room waits

Long waits at the emergency room are the norm at many hospitals, and a source of frustration for patients and doctors. The emergency department at St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Stockton, operated by Dignity Health, sees about 275 patients each day. In the past two months, it has been able to shrink the amount of time it takes for a doctor to attend to an emergency room patient from around 30 minutes to less than 20 minutes.
