Primex Wireless Showcases Compliance Solutions for Healthcare Facilities at HIMSS 2012

Leading provider of solutions to automate and maintain facility compliance sponsors Intelligent Hospital exhibit in RFID Pavilion to address “another side of compliance”

LAKE GENEVA, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Primex Wireless, the leading provider of solutions to automate and maintain facility compliance, announced today that it is a sponsor of the Intelligent Hospital exhibit in the RFID Pavilion at the HIMSS 2012 (HIMSS12) Annual Conference & Exhibition. The conference is being held this week at the Venetian Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas.

Primex Wireless speakers Marc Guenette, Primex Wireless Facility Compliance Group, and Mike O’Brien, Director Product Research & Marketing at Primex Wireless, will host two 20-minute presentations of “Managing Facility Compliance with Wireless Technologies” at 4:45pm PST on February 22 and at 3:15pm PST on February 23 – each in the RFID Pavilion (Booth 12442, Lower Level Hall G.)

“Our industry experience shows us that compliance issues are a major source of pain for healthcare facility directors and their staff,” said Guenette, who called facilities “another side of compliance” for healthcare organizations already grappling with many regulatory requirements.

“That’s why our Intelligent Hospital presentation focuses on wireless technologies that will help manage facility compliance more efficiently and cost-effectively,” he said.

O’Brien listed some common compliance challenges for healthcare facilities:

  • Ongoing Temperature Monitoring
  • Event Monitoring (such as door closures, water detection and equipment performance)
  • Life Safety Inspection Points , such as monthly emergency light testing
  • Time Synchronization, which impacts Door-to-Balloon times and STEMI certification

“For many organizations, budgets have shrunk and some healthcare facilities depend on fewer people to execute the same amount of work,” said O’Brien, who added this issue is complicated by labor-intensive, time-consuming manual processes that often lead to operational inconsistencies.

“Coupled with sprawling campuses peppered with disparate buildings, which are down the street, across town or even in another city, these problems can have painful consequences on a facility’s bottom line,” he said. According to O’Brien, non-compliance in facilities can result in a loss of income from Medicaid and Medicare programs, which account for about 55 percent of a typical hospital’s revenues.

The Primex Synchronous Network System (SNS) is a single platform with Web-based software that gives facility managers unprecedented capabilities for time synchronization, wireless monitoring, automatic email alerting, and accurate event logging. SNS is one of the first wireless platforms on the market that helps facility managers monitor compliance by using their existing Wi-Fi networks.
