Code blue gets automated

Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital is using Amcom Messenger to save time and improve patient safety in its new 72-bed building. The Hershey, PA, organization selected Amcom to improve code- blue notifications by

automating the process and reducing notification time. Amcom Messenger routes code blue alerts from the Rauland Responder 5 staff terminals in each patient room directly to the code team’s pagers. Staff members just hit a button on the wall, and the rest is automated. Amcom Software

Get asset tracking, fleet management, nurse call and more

After a six-month trial, Sentara Healthcare has selected Versus Advantages Asset Tracking and Fleet Management, powered by Versus’ real-time locating system (RTLS), to be implemented at its 10 hospitals in Virginia and North Carolina. Versus’ combination IR and RFID technology locates people and assets through the direct asso-

ciation of RTLS tag signals to sensors installed in each room. Sentara was also able to build its asset tracking system onto a Versus RTLS network already in use for nurse call automation. Versus Technology MU Stage 2 and patient communication

HealthWave Connect is a cloud-based messaging service that works with most certified EHRs to allow health- care providers to send out per- sonalized, customized messages based on each

patient’s individual care plan to improve patient outcomes. It provides two-way patient communication (so patients can respond back to their message) and patient calendar integra- tion, and gives physicians a vital tool to help comply with the meaningful-use Stage 2 standard. This solution speeds up appointment confirmations and saves a complete audit trail of communication. PhoneTree Improve hospital-wide patient throughput
