TRAVERSE CITY, Mich., April 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Versus Technology, Inc., (Versus) announces a collaboration with Cleveland Clinic's Glickman Urology & Kidney Institute that will combine Versus' Real-time Location Information System (RTLIS), VISion(TM), with the Cleveland Clinic's Glickman Urological & Kidney Institute's clinical workflow expertise to enhance Versus' clinic-based patient flow solution.
The collaboration will develop and document clinic best practices through increased efficiencies, automatic data capture, event automation, and system integrations. The goal of this initiative is to transform clinic processes improving patient safety and satisfaction while reducing unnecessary expenditures related to time spent searching and waiting.
These efforts include retooling basic processes and time-consuming, repetitive tasks with real-time location information passively collected through the Versus patented Infrared (IR) and Active RFID sensory network. By using technology to automate routine tasks, errors in data entry and delays due to the fast-paced clinic environment will be reduced or prevented. Caregivers will be free to dedicate more time to patient care.
"Versus has implemented hundreds of RTLIS solutions for automating processes within acute care, emergency, perioperative, long-term care and biomedical settings, so enhancing the Versus Location Information System to assist outpatient clinics is a natural progression in this growing marketplace. New technology allowing caregivers to provide for patients more effectively and efficiently is an important need of healthcare systems," said Paul Timmerman, Versus' VP of Business Development.
