Crittenton Hospital Medical Center and CareTech Solutions help babies stay safe with new tracking technology

CareTech Solutions assists Crittenton with implementation of technologies designed to improve patient experience

Rochester, Mich. – October 10, 2005 – Crittenton Hospital Medical Center in Rochester, Mich., has activated two high-tech systems that will improve the safety and care of patients as well as information access for visitors with the assistance of CareTech Solutions, a Michigan-based provider of information technology (IT) and healthcare information management (HIM) solutions for hospitals and health systems.

In the hospital’s pediatrics and mother-baby units, an advanced system has been implemented for ensuring the safety of babies, helping to ensure that a baby is matched with its own mother when brought to a room from the nursery and that only authorized individuals move a baby through the units.

Called the “Hugs and Kisses” infant protection system, manufactured by VeriChip, this tracking technology involves a tiny RFID (radio-frequency identification) radio transmitter that is placed on the baby’s ankle. With a wireless system in place throughout the area, “Hugs” polls the baby’s monitor every seven seconds to determine the exact location of the infant in relation to an electronic floor plan that is observed by hospital staff.

The “Kisses” mother/infant matching system technology utilizes the RFID device on the baby and a small quarter sized tag on the mother that are bound together at the baby’s birth. This system prevents the risk of mother/baby mismatch by playing a lullaby when the mother and baby are within arm’s reach to confirm a match. The “Hugs and Kisses” systems also support multiple births.

Moreover, both systems help prevent abduction of an infant, a problem resulting in more than 100 abductions from healthcare facilities in the past 22 years. If a baby is held more than ten seconds outside a door, or if a baby passes through a door without having been released, an alert sounds in the unit to warn nurses. The monitoring system is removed from the mother and baby when they are discharged.

While “Hugs and Kisses” is designed to provide constantly updated information on each baby’s location and proper matching with its mother, another system implemented at Crittenton by CareTech is helping visitors remain updated on information from the World Wide Web. All areas of the hospital now provide wireless access to the Internet. Visitors and families in public areas and in patient rooms can go online via their laptops to keep others up to date on a patient’s progress through email, to stay in touch with news developments, to retrieve medical and other information from online sites and to use the Internet for a full range of resources. This fall, Internet kiosks will be installed in public areas of the hospital for additional convenience.

Additionally, cell phone use will be permitted in certain areas of the hospital, allowing family and friends to remain in contact with one another.

“Our top priorities at Crittenton are safety, comfort and communication for patients and their families,” said Crittenton Hospital Medical Center President and Chief Executive Officer Lynn Orfgen. “We feel the security and peace of mind afforded us by CareTech’s adaptation of VeriChip’s technology for Crittenton, along with the information access now available through our wall-to-wall wireless access, will provide an exceptional level of comfort among all who stay, visit and work here.”

CareTech is known widely for the innovative solutions it develops and/or implements for healthcare systems across the country, ranging from advanced networking technology to forward-looking electronic medical records that help to improve the quality and efficiency of patient care.

“Crittenton is offering a new standard of care through its adoption of this RFID technology and other wireless applications,” said CareTech President and Chief Executive Officer Jim Giordano. “The board and management of Crittenton should be commended for embracing technology to its fullest in advancing the well-being and comfort of its patients.”

Online Group Communications Resource Introduced for Physicians

 

CareTech’s MediCom Central gains steam on ability to allow physicians, administrators and other hospital personnel to share and post information

Troy, Mich. – Feb. 13, 2005 – Finally, there is one powerful application that can be employed at many levels of the healthcare organization giving physician groups, clinical departments, boards of directors and administrative teams the ability to streamline communications and better organize information, quickly and efficiently. Health care professionals who are challenged by the way in which new information is currently delivered are increasingly able to access up-to-the-minute information from any location, thanks to an online group communications resource developed by CareTech Solutions. The company publicly launched the offering in conjunction with the Health Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Annual Meeting, taking place this week in San Diego.

Since piloting the solution, called MediCom Central, within its existing customer base, the product has received an extraordinary reception with a high percentage of customers electing to adopt the technology. The technology was developed by CareTech’s WebCare™ team, a service offering designed to support hospitals and healthcare systems’ online capabilities.

For physician groups, MediCom can provide immediate, secure access to such crucial information as medical journals, health plan provider information, compliance data, meeting schedules and agendas, department calendars, professional education opportunities and more. Other key hospital groups, such as boards of directors, can gain rapid access to previous meeting minutes, meeting agendas, annual reports, strategic planning documents, financial data, legal and legislative updates, and other critical information with the click of a mouse. Partners can also communicate with each other via secured forums and bulletin board postings.

“While the concept of an online group communications resource isn’t new, the recent call for digitization of documents and the on-the-go nature of the healthcare profession has created an urgent demand for a technical resource like MediCom,” said CareTech Solutions WebCare Director Christopher Catallo. “By providing opportunities for physicians and hospital personnel to interact with one another, while supporting their need to access information from multiple locations, MediCom is helping many hospitals and medical groups increase productivity, accuracy and security – without interrupting the group’s dedication to patient care.”

MediCom allows healthcare professionals to communicate more effectively from remote locations, and can be customized through a template-based, database-driven document management system and document repository. Many service options are also available, from complete self-administration by the group to seamless integration and updating through CareTech’s WebCare team, where a group need only furnish raw data.

Benefits of MediCom’s secure, time-saving service include:

  • One centralized online resource, providing permission-based and password-protected access to information through any Internet connection
  • Document retrieval and posting, assuring materials are up-to-date much more easily and quickly than with printed material
  • Simultaneous content review by multiple users
  • Greatly reduced legal liabilities through ready access to medical bulletins and the most recent health care findings – all recordable to demonstrate a user had accessed the information
