GetWellNetwork Partners with DAISY Foundation to Recognize Extraordinary Nurses
Date:3/3/2008

Interactive Patient Care System Enables Patients to Provide Direct Feedback

and Award Nurses for Compassionate Care

BETHESDA, Md., March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- GetWellNetwork, Inc., a leading provider of Interactive Patient Care (IPC) solutions, today announced that it is partnering with the DAISY Foundation to help hospitals recognize the exceptional work of nurses through the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses. Through the GetWellNetwork(R) system, patients and families at participating hospitals can provide direct feedback about the nursing staff and nominate deserving nurses to receive the prestigious award.

Currently awarded at more than 200 hospitals, the DAISY Award honors a nurse at each hospital each month for the compassionate care he/she provides and the profound difference he/she makes in the lives of patients and their families. Award recipients are selected based on feedback from hospital staff, as well as patients and their families. Since the program's inception, 2,000 nurses have been recognized with the award. In January 2008, the DAISY Foundation and the American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE) formed a collaboration to expand the program to every hospital in the country that wishes to incorporate it into their nurse recognition and retention strategies. Operational responsibilities for the award program were assumed by the AONE Institute for Patient Care Research & Education.

"Nurses often go unrecognized for their tremendously skillful and compassionate care," said Bonnie Barnes, president and co-founder of the DAISY Foundation. "The DAISY Foundation is committed to honoring nurses across the country for all that they do. Our partnership with GetWellNetwork furthers this mission by enabling hospitals to more effectively identify the unsung heroes, as well as allowing us to expand our award program to other hospital communities."
