AdventHealth launches largest AI-enabled Mission Control command center in US

AdventHealth marked the opening of its Mission Control clinical command center at the Altamonte Springs, Fla.-based health system's Orlando campus on Aug. 28.

At 12,000 square feet, the high-tech center is the largest of the five launched so far by GE Healthcare at health systems across the U.S. and Canada. AdventHealth's Mission Control will monitor and orchestrate patient care across all nine of the system's campuses; it will be staffed 24/7 by a rotating team of 78 nurses, EMS and flight dispatchers and other specialists.

The hub includes 60 monitors displaying hospital and patient data. This information, which includes near- and real-time data such as bed status and helicopter and ambulance movements, is constantly analyzed by 20 different artificial intelligence apps to guide clinical decision-making in areas such as patient transfers, placement and treatment, and ambulance dispatch.

AdventHealth's facility is the third to open this month: Both Tacoma, Wash.-based CHI Franciscan Health and Tampa (Fla.) General Hospital have teamed up with GE Healthcare to launch their own command centers in August. Other members of the GE Healthcare Command Center Ecosystem include The Johns Hopkins Health System in Baltimore and Humber River Hospital in Toronto.
