TRAVERSE CITY, Mich., May 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Maybe it's the economy, maybe it's government initiatives like the HITECH Act, maybe it's that age-old adage that "there's always room for improvement" -- whatever it is: the healthcare industry is eager for solutions to enhance safety, improve patient flow and perfect communication. Versus Technology, Inc. is the only real-time location information system (RTLS) company meeting these needs.
Versus is focused on helping hospitals and clinics be safer and more efficient, while making the most of existing resources. It is Versus' core competency, allowing them to continue delivering the very best Automated Workflows Solutions to the healthcare industry. The Versus Spring '09 Release, featuring enhanced real-time interfaces and reporting mechanisms, is an extension of this commitment.
The new Reports Plus workflow feature allows single or multiple users to automatically receive the same reports via email at regularly scheduled intervals (i.e., daily, weekly, monthly). These reports are available in a variety of file formats such as MS Excel and Adobe Acrobat. The automated reporting functionality allows staff to easily determine any captured parameter without having to request the report. Automated report examples include average bed turnover time during a particular shift, the number of patients who waited more than 30 minutes for discharge during the week or the number of EKGs performed in the emergency department (ED) in the last month.
Another method to increase efficiency for clients is to eliminate duplicated effort. With the Spring '09 Release, Versus is providing real-time integration to Microsoft(R) Active Directory. This allows password/security administrators to control logins for all applications from a single point and eliminates the need to maintain login information in two separate databases, which often leads to errors when a change is made in one application, but not the other. By controlling all login information from a single system, the administrator will only need to issue login/password instructions for one system, rather than two -- which removes a great deal of confusion for end users each time there is an update.
The Spring '09 Release is significant to Versus' commitment to enterprise solutions. "With the Spring '09 release, we've not only given customers tools to enhance efficiency, we've strengthened our enterprise platform and made it easier to streamline enterprise implementations," explains Chief Technology Officer, HT Snowday. "This upgrade helps solidify Versus in the Healthcare IT environment."
Current clients and industry recognition, especially over the last year, have spurred remarkable interest in Versus' Clinical Workflow Solutions. Versus' clients are expanding the Versus Solution, sharing their successes with colleagues and gaining prominence with Best Practice awards like the American Hospital Association's (AHA) Pursuit of Excellence. Likewise, Versus, has been recognized by Frost & Sullivan for a 3rd time as the Market Leader for Healthcare RTLS and by GLIMANorthwest as a Top 12 Technology company. Versus is also exclusively endorsed by the AHA for its IR-RFID Patient Flow Solution.
