Charlestown, MA's Aceso To Partner With Boston's Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital To Create First Post-Acute Care Digital Media Solutions Model

BOSTON, Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- After more than 40 years of providing world renowned rehabilitation and therapeutic services at its current location in Boston's West End, Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital will be relocating their main facility to the historic Charlestown Navy Yard later this spring. Spaulding's new facility incorporates the latest in inclusive design elements and has already been recognized with a LEED Silver certification. The new Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital will be the first post acute provider in the country to build and design a hospital from the ground up that includes an integrated digital media system with a mix of in-room systems and digital signage throughout the facility. Spaulding partnered with Charlestown-based Aceso Interactive to provide these innovative digital elements.

"Our goal is to create more adaptable and engaging experience for patients, families, visitors and staff," said John Campbell, Chief Information Officer, Spaulding Rehabilitation Network. "Spaulding's commitment is to be both innovative and adaptable in everything we do from the care we deliver to the technology we use.  It has been a very rewarding experience to find a partner like Aceso who is not only a leader in the field but also aligns with our mission of inclusion and accessibility. Together, we are building a new digital model for a hospital experience that engages patients, families and staff, and is accessible to all the communities we serve."

Aceso will be installing their proprietary UpCare /UpTech Interactive Patient Care, ("IPC"), platform throughout the 132 private patient rooms. Digital media wall displays will be installed on all eight floors, along with a network of common area TV's, broadcasting compelling wellness content to engage and inform patients and visitors. The installation will also feature Aceso's Hospital Television Network "HTV" product. Spaulding and Aceso will collaborate to create the first "Post-Acute Care TV Network" for patients, guests and staff, viewable on common area TV's.

As part of the development, Aceso worked with inter-disciplinary clinical teams at Spaulding to ensure that the technology and presentation will suit the variety of patient populations Spaulding serves, from pediatric populations to those recovering from stroke or brain injury. From eye tracking software to adaptive pillow speakers, the technology is designed to be utilized by people of all abilities. It is also expected to become an important therapy tool by hosting educational resources that can be used independently by the patient or in conjunction with therapists.
