PITTSBURGH, April 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Vocollect Healthcare Systems, Inc. and Pathway Health Services, Inc., a nationally recognized consulting and management company for the long-term care, senior housing, assisted living and home care markets, announce an agreement whereby Pathway Health Services will become a solution provider. In addition to providing its own consultative services to its client base, Pathway Health Services will introduce AccuNurse voice-assisted care as a complementary solution to its full range of services and offerings.
"Pathway consultants have an average of 20 years of nursing experience and understand the challenges of skilled nursing facilities," said Debby Schuna, president & CEO, Pathway Health Services Inc. "Implementing an IT solution is a complicated process; but understanding that process and being able to lead culture change is what we do successfully. We're very excited to utilize our expertise in partnering with Vocollect Healthcare Systems. AccuNurse voice-assisted care is a one-of-a-kind solution in the marketplace and has the power required to drive reimbursement and staff efficiency to higher levels of performance."
AccuNurse gives caregivers the option to access resident care needs on-demand, complete documentation of care simply by talking, enhance care-team collaboration with the Silent Page(TM) capability, and track improved clinical outcomes. Voice-assisted care puts information they need and instant access to other team members on demand - anytime, anywhere in the community.

"First, Pathways' role as AccuNurse clinical managers means fast, efficient deployment, enabling customers to realize the benefits in using voice assisted care.
