Stanley Healthcare Solutions and GetWellNetwork, Inc.® today announced that they have integrated Stanley Healthcare’s Real-Time Location System (RTLS) with GetWellNetwork’s Interactive Patient Care™ solution. The combined solution helps healthcare organizations keep patients and their families informed and secure by identifying caregivers that enter patient rooms and tracking when they visited. The integration has already been successfully deployed at Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel and is being deployed in other leading hospitals.
“Keeping patients and their families informed while in our hospital is absolutely vital to providing a positive patient experience and facilitating the best possible outcomes,” said Brian Adams, Chief Executive Officer of Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel. “The information from the combined Stanley Healthcare and GetWellNetwork solution is much more accessible and timely for our customers than traditional paper or whiteboard methods, and it helps improve both patient satisfaction and security.”
GetWellNetwork provides patient engagement solutions that help healthcare providers engage, educate and empower patients along the care continuum. Its patient-centered platform uses mobile devices, computers and televisions to enable providers to implement an Interactive Patient Care™ delivery model that improves performance and patient outcomes. Through its recent acquisition of AeroScout, Stanley Healthcare is a leader in Wi-Fi RTLS, providing solutions for tracking the real-time location, status and condition of healthcare staff, patients and assets, via standard Wi-Fi networks. Thanks to the integration of the two solutions, when a clinician that is being tracked enters a patient room, the clinician’s photo, name and role are displayed on a video monitor running the Interactive Patient Care solution.
“The integrated GetWellNetwork and Stanley Healthcare solution provides a new level of security, information and peace-of-mind to patients and their families,” said Michael O’Neil Jr., Founder and Chief Executive Officer of GetWellNetwork, Inc. “The deployment at Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel is the first integration of RTLS with our patient engagement solution and illustrates the openness and collaboration required of technology providers to make healthcare better for patients.”
