– Redox announced a partnership with SwipeSense to help eliminate waste and improve patient outcomes in healthcare delivery networks.
– The partnership ensures that SwipeSense’s growing portfolio of applications is fully interoperable with any EHR system, while greatly reducing the time and effort required to integrate into a hospital’s existing suite of tools.
– With Redox, SwipeSense will be automatically notified of all relevant patient admission, discharge, and transfer events, enhancing their industry-leading applications
SwipeSense, a Real-time Location System (RTLS) platform that powers applications designed to eliminate waste and improve patient outcomes in healthcare delivery networks announced its strategic partnership with Redox Inc., an integration platform for healthcare data exchange. This partnership ensures that SwipeSense’s growing portfolio of applications is fully interoperable with any electronic health record (EHR) system, while greatly reducing the time and effort required to integrate into a hospital’s existing suite of tools.
Growing Need for EHR Integration for Room Accuracy RTLS Platform
SwipeSense offers the most affordable, room-accuracy RTLS platform, making critical applications, such as Asset Tracking, Hand Hygiene and Labor Visibility, available to hospitals that had previously been priced out of these solutions. Hospitals’ technology leaders are increasingly looking to integrate their various information systems, particularly EHRs, with SwipeSense data, to ensure providers realize the full benefits of their technology investments.
How SwipeSense Leverages Redox’s Data Integration Platform
Through research with dozens of leading hospitals and health systems, SwipeSense has identified an opportunity to combine EHR data with RTLS data to deliver novel operational insights. Legacy RTLS providers have often viewed EHR integration as an ability to push presence data one-way into the EHR, rather than mining a combined EHR – RTLS dataset to drive operational improvements.
With Redox, SwipeSense will be automatically notified of all relevant patient admission, discharge, and transfer events, enhancing their industry-leading applications. For example, hand hygiene compliance can now be computed electronically for providers treating patients with specific diagnoses, such as C-Diff, which requires a particular handwashing technique. Clinicians can also determine the status and utilization of mobile equipment more accurately based on measuring the time equipment spends co-located with patients. Or nurses’ Purposeful Hourly Rounding can be measured automatically based on occupied patient room visit frequency
Powering Providers With A Complete Picture of Quality & Operational Metrics
“Historically, many organizations have struggled to realize the full value of RTLS. A major reason for this is that legacy systems have often been siloed and disconnected from the EHR,” said Kabir Gulati, senior product manager at SwipeSense. “SwipeSense has selected Redox to enable EHR integrations for our rapidly growing install base. With Redox, SwipeSense will be able to provide a more complete picture of key quality and operational metrics, helping healthcare delivery systems further reduce harm and waste, while improving patient experience within their facilities.”
