Grand Rapids, MI (February 15, 2017) — eVideon (www.evideon.com) announces that it has released an integration with Versus Technology Inc., which provides healthcare facilities with operational and clinical workflow intelligence using real-time locating system (RTLS) technology, to deliver a personalized patient experience in an outpatient setting.
eVideon has integrated with the Versus RTLS to “greet” patients as part of self-rooming workflows. With self-rooming, patients receive a Versus badge when first arriving at the outpatient facility. Using real-time room status information displayed in the Versus Advantages™ Clinic software, staff immediately direct the patient to an available exam room. When the room is reserved for the patient, Versus sends that data to eVideon, which allows the patient to be greeted by name on an interactive display in the appropriate room. Patients are also welcomed with relaxation videos featuring soothing music and calming nature scenes as well as educational videos based on their condition.
Many healthcare clinics and outpatient facilities may not have a traditional ADT feed from an EHR. The Versus RTLS integration allows eVideon to be patient-aware in those environments, enabling eVideon to personalize the patient's experience and education, while tracking the progress of each patient throughout their stay. “After the patient views their assigned video education, eVideon automatically documents the patient’s activity for tracking and reporting,” explains Scott King, eVideon’s Chief Technology Officer.
At the conclusion of their visit, the patient simply drops their badge into a Versus Dropbox, and Versus Advantages Clinic automatically indicates their exam room is ready for turnover while eVideon closes out the patient visit and disassociates the patient from the display.
“The integration with eVideon complements our self-rooming workflow,” says Tim Page, Versus Project Manager. “When a patient enters their exam room, the on-screen greeting assures them they’re in the right place.”
Self-rooming workflows are a new trend in outpatient care designed to enhance the patient experience by minimizing or eliminating wait times. Because patients bypass the waiting room altogether, self-rooming also eliminates the time a patient may be exposed to other patients with potential contagions.
“Our integration with Versus shows how powerful a role technology can play in transforming the healthcare experience for patients. It can welcome and reassure the patient that they are in the right place when they arrive in the exam room, while relaxation content can help relieve anxiety before a patient sees their physician,” said King.
