BATESVILLE, Ind., April 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Hill-Rom (NYSE: HRC) today announced the release of an enhanced NaviCare(R) WatchChild(R) solution, following receipt of marketing clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. This complete obstetrical information system is designed to create seamless information movement for labor and delivery clinicians across all aspects of obstetrical care.

"The NaviCare WatchChild solution is uniquely designed by clinicians, for clinicians," stated Adam McMullin, vice president, Marketing and Strategy, Hill-Rom IT Solutions. "Labor and delivery nurses and doctors outlined their need to efficiently and effectively monitor perinatal care for both mother and baby, and their desire to minimize the administrative time required for documentation. This innovative platform optimizes work flow and allows for coordinated communication throughout the patient's stay."

The redesigned WatchChild solution evolved from a recognized need to provide an integrated and intuitive way to manage obstetrical operations, including reporting, communication, care plan development, skin and fall assessment screening and operating room record/pre-anesthesia checklists. The NaviCare WatchChild solution also offers state-of-the-art data archiving capability to help manage long-and-short-term liability risks for hospitals and caregivers.

The NaviCare WatchChild solution also includes an intuitively designed suite of HL7 interfacing capabilities, allowing for real-time communication between NaviCare WatchChild and other hospital systems such as in admissions, pharmacy and laboratory services. The NaviCare WatchChild solution easily integrates by providing linkages to an array of other hospital information systems.

"Our customers are excited about the enhancements developed for NaviCare WatchChild," said McMullin. "We believe these enhancements will only build more excitement for a product that meets the needs of patients and caregivers in this unique area of health care. There's value for our customers and in turn, for the patients they serve."

The NaviCare WatchChild solution is part of the NaviCare(R) Clinical Operations Platform. In February 2008, Hill-Rom introduced an enhanced NaviCare Clinical Operations Platform designed to support hospital efforts to provide improved patient safety, quality of care and operational efficiency.
