Have We Got a Solution For You

Posted in News on Monday, January 09, 2017.

Interoperability with other HIS is one of the key features of STANLEY Healthcare’s RTLS solutions that customers leverage to extract more value from location data. In fact, we support a wide range of integrations: EMR, ADT systems, computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS), nurse call systems, and more. In all these cases, customers want to add location data to the information handled by these systems to streamline workflows and patient flows. For example, EMR integration allows for the bidirectional flow of data, with patient location information appearing in the EMR—which many hospitals now use as their central information clearinghouse—and information flowing to STANLEY Healthcare’s patient flow solution to automatically populate patient data fields. Similarly, location data on assets like IV pumps can be displayed in CMMS systems, and such information as firmware version and maintenance information can be displayed in our solution.
