Streamlined communication of information will provide improved patient care and reduced operational expenses
BOULDER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Connexall® USA, a leader in enterprise middleware specializing in the healthcare sector, today announced a partnership with Alvarez & Associates, LLC, a prime contractor on the NASA-SEWP IV contract. The partnership streamlines access by VA and military hospitals to Connexall’s industry-leading technology. The unique Connexall solution is designed to improve the two-way communication of information leading to workflow efficiency, increased patient quality-of-care, safety, and healthcare provider effectiveness.
Connexall Healthcare integrates disparate communications solutions to optimize delivery of care while working with hospitals’ existing IT systems. Connexall has successful installations in 600 hospitals worldwide, allowing nurses, doctors, OR and ED workers to improve communications, increase event response times, and gain efficiencies that ultimately reduce the operating costs of hospitals and other healthcare facilities.
“With a strong focus on cost containment by VA and DOD healthcare facilities, having access to the right technology can be the difference between sacrificing patient quality of care and actually improving it,” commented Everett Alvarez, Jr., CEO of Alvarez & Associates. “In recent years, some of the biggest impacts to technology have been to the communications systems for nurse call stations, fire alarm controls, and other monitoring systems,” he added.
Connexall assists healthcare enterprises in improving efficiencies in key clinical areas with applications such as ER patient flow and OR workflow, plus nurse call and patient monitoring, as well as hospital-wide building management. John Elms, president of Connexall USA, reported, “We offer a highly-flexible solution that not only integrates with existing devices and enterprise systems, but does so in a way that allows these facilities to actually improve the level of care while reducing costs. Now, with Alvarez Associates and the SEWP contract, it is easier than ever for VA hospitals and other military health facilities to benefit from this unique solution.”
Connexall recently completed the first phase of a project at New York City’s Mount Sinai Medical Center. Connexall’s technology allows the world-renowned facility to improve patient response time and improve communications so events are dealt with immediately, improving quality-of-care and patient satisfaction while reducing the facility’s cost of care.
