Healthcare Spotlight: Achieve Lower Maintenance Costs, Better Patient Care and More Efficiency with Synchronized Time

Posted by American Time on Apr 17, 2020 1:39:33 PM


When every second matters, each person in your clinic or hospital needs to be on the same time. Whether tracking surgery time, coordinating patient care, keeping appointments on time or recording tasks, precise time throughout a building or campus is essential.

Synchronized time happens when each clock in a clinic or hospital shows the same time. Whether you choose analog or digital clocks, there are many time technologies to fit your specific needs. From expanding an existing wired clock system, to adding wireless clocks, to considering Wi-Fi clocks, you can go here to read more about synchronized time technology choices, features and options!

Avoid Time Disputes

When every clock shows the same, precise time in every room and corner of a building, it lessens the opportunity for disputes or confusion about time. Patients know when to expect an appointment or staff visit; billing and record-keeping is accurate from room to room; and time between each station or room is accurate. 

Better Coordination of Care


Accurately track medications, patient appointments, rotations and more with clocks that display accurate time to within 1/10th of a second. During operations, the time on each clock – from the prep area to the OR or ER – needs to be in sync; elapsed time indicators on digital clocks, for example, are a highly visible and easy way to count time up or down during surgery. 

Free-up Maintenance Staff Time

Synchronized clocks keep the right time and automatically adjust for daylight saving time. Now, instead of adjusting clocks or responding to endless work orders, your maintenance staff can spend time on other issues. American Time clocks are durable, beautiful and long-lasting. Hang them and forget them!
