OhioHealth Selects Vibe Health by eVideon to Increase Clinical Efficiency and Modernize the In-Patient Experience
Integrated smart room solution to alleviate workload pressures on clinical staff and elevate patient care.
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.—April 17, 2023 (PR Web)— Vibe Health by eVideon, the leader in hospital smart room technology and digital workflow solutions, announces a new partnership with OhioHealth, a nationally recognized, not-for-profit health system with 14 hospitals, 200+ambulatory sites and health services spanning 50 Ohio counties. This strategic partnership will see the initial deployment of the Vibe Health smart room platform into OhioHealth Pickerington Methodist Hospital, which is scheduled to open its doors in December of this year.
The new partnership will deploy Vibe Health’s full suite of patient and nurse-centric solutions:
- Engage, an interactive TV solution that personalizes the in-room experience to educate, entertain and engage
- Insight, a digital whiteboard that integrates with the EMR to bring real-time information to improve communication
- Companion, a bedside tablet software that provides all of the features and benefits of the Engage in-room TV solution with the convenience of an interactive tablet
- Aware, a dynamic digital door sign outside the patient room that integrates with the EMR to display real-time notifications and alerts to staff and visitors.
The deployment includes seamless integration with Epic, OhioHealth’s Electronic Medical Record (EMR) partner, to leverage the EMR as the single point of truth for critical health information. The partnership will also include integration with Caregility, an enterprise telehealth solutions company, in order to provide virtual nursing support for the patient and care team, as well as video calls to keep patients connected to family and loved ones throughout their care journey.
“OhioHealth’s desire for a complete solution that not only elevates the care experience for patients and families, but also transforms theday-to-day for nurses and clinical teams perfectly aligned with Vibe Health’s mission,” said Jeff Fallon, Chairman and CEO of Vibe Health by eVideon. “We are thrilled to partner with such a dedicated group at OhioHealth to bring the many benefits of smart room innovation to their staff and the communities they serve.”
To further reduce inefficiencies for nurses, Vibe Health will also integrate with OhioHealth’s vendors of choice for Meal Ordering and Real Time Location Services (RTLS). These integrations play avital role in providing patients with autonomy and control throughout their stay, and they are key to bridging communication gaps between patients and clinical teams. Through RTLS integration with Vibe Health’s Insight digital whiteboard, notifications will display in real-time when staff enter the patient room, and a history of staff visits will be accessible via the digital whiteboard. Reductions in manual tasks will enable clinicians to spend more time with patients and their families at the bedside.
“As we prepare to open Pickerington Methodist Hospital, we want to ensure that we have the technology to elevate the quality of care that patients and their families will experience during their time with us,” said Andrea Darby, OhioHealth VP, IT Integration.
“Our nursing staff will benefit from this technology as well, as the Vibe Health suite will mitigate inefficiencies throughout the care continuum, letting them focus on patient care,” Kevin Lutz, DPM, president, Pickerington Methodist.
