Versus Presents New Hand-Hygiene Alliance, Wireless Sensors and RTLS Education at HIMSS13
Date:2/28/2013

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich., Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Attendees of the annual Health Information Management Systems Society conference (HIMSS13) will have multiple opportunities to learn how Real-time Locating System (RTLS) technology positively impacts efficiency and safety in healthcare, as well as learn about new wireless RTLS technology.

Versus will be sharing its booth, #3463, with Georgia-Pacific Professional, a leading provider of hygienic dispensing systems, towels, tissues, soaps and sanitizers. Versus and Georgia-Pacific Professional recently announced a strategic alliance to improve hand hygiene participation in healthcare.

Healthcare associated infections (HAIs) are a growing challenge affecting the quality of healthcare, and according to the CDC, the best way to help prevent the spread of HAIs is through proper hand hygiene. Therefore, improving how healthcare facilities manage these infections can help contribute to patient and healthcare worker safety, as well as help manage the costs associated with these infections.

HIMSS13 attendees have the opportunity to see the first demonstrations of the Georgia-Pacific Professional SafeHaven™ monitoring system. The SafeHaven system combines Versus monitoring and communications technology and Georgia-Pacific Professional dispensers and skin care products to make it easier than ever for healthcare professionals to practice and monitor good hand hygiene, and helps create a healthier environment in their facilities.

The companies will be showcasing the new, state-of-the-art SafeHaven monitoring system, the first in the industry to include built-in RTLS components.  Together with Versus Advantages™ Hand Hygiene Safety software and a continuing education program, SafeHaven system is a complete hand hygiene program that helps hospitals monitor, measure and manage hand hygiene participation. Learn more about SafeHaven at Versus booth #3463 and in the Intelligent Hospital Pavilion kiosk #8711-31.

In addition to the demonstration of the SafeHaven system, HIMSS13 attendees can register for an educational session or attend one of two cocktail receptions to learn more. The receptions, held Monday and Tuesday from 4-5 p.m. at Versus' booth #3463, will feature Dr. Alison Lukacsko , Vice President of Georgia-Pacific Professional Skin Care Category and a veteran in enhancing infection control protocol.

Also on display at the Versus booth will be the company's new V-Link™ RTLS platform. The battery-powered, wireless V-Link sensors are quickly and easily installed, without pulling wire. Using the same Infrared and RFID technology as its 10th-generation V-Direct™ platform, V-Link allows Versus to offer the clinical-grade accuracy it's known for as wireless option.

Hospitals looking to reduce capital equipment expenses should plan to attend HIMSS Education Session #107, "Achieving 'Just-In-Time' Par Level Asset Management with RTLS." Speaker Chris Buchsteiner , a Healthcare Improvement Engineer with PeaceHealth in Oregon, will detail how his facility immediately reduced IV Pump inventory by 26 percent, with a projected savings of $2.7 million.

Buchsteiner will expand on his HIMSS presentation during two sessions at the Versus booth (#3463), where additional RTLS sessions will also be available. American Hospital Association Director Mary Longe and Versus executives will discuss advanced RTLS applications, including patient flow, health systems automation, and hand hygiene. Attendees can sign up for the 30-minute educational sessions at versustech.com/himss13.
