Budapest, Hungary and Dublin, Ireland May 10, 2011: Lincor Solutions has rolled-out Hospital Bed Management and Patient Meal Ordering applications for its MEDIVista bedside computing platform. The applications are part of Lincor’s drive to deliver more services on its market leading bedside computing platform, to enable hospitals to improve clinical outcomes, boost operational efficiency and enhance patient experience.
Lincor MEDIVista is the leading bedside computing solution for hospitals and healthcare delivery organisations. The solution currently serves nearly 20,000 beds in 80 hospitals and care facilities in Europe, North America and Asia-Pacific. Our customers, who include Centre Hospitalier de la Région d’Annecy, Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children and University Hospital Leuven, use MEDIVista to provide real-time access to a full range of clinical, diagnostic, information, entertainment and management applications at the point-of-care.
“With MEDIVista it is very cost effective to deliver critical applications to the point-of-care for use by clinicians, support staff and patients,” said Richard Cooke, Chief Executive Officer at Lincor Solutions. “Patient Meal Ordering and Hospital Bed Management are the latest in a range of services, from Lincor and third-party developers, that can be provided at the patient bedside to dramatically improve clinical care, enhance the patient experience and increase operational effectiveness.”
MEDIVista Patient Meal Ordering is an online food ordering and dietary management system that provides patients with an interactive and intuitive way of ordering their meals while in hospital. The application, which is centrally managed and accessed on MEDIVista bedside computers, delivers significant improvements in patient care, patient choice and patient experience while enabling hospitals to reduce cost and improve effectiveness by eliminating the need to manually collect food orders from each patient. Patient Meal Ordering also enables hospitals to reduce waste and manage patients’ dietary requirements, and provides the potential to generate revenue from premium menu items, extra portions, or additional meals for visitors.
Hospital Bed Management from Lincor Solutions is aimed at helping hospitals to optimise the use and supply of beds on the ward. The easy to use system allows nursing staff to indicate when a bed is ready for cleaning, or has been vacated, by simply clicking on the appropriate icon on the MEDIVista screen. Once the bed is cleaned and ready for use its status is changed, which means hospitals can track hospital-wide bed availability in real-time.
“By delivering more services and applications such as Patient Meal Ordering and Hospital Bed Management direct to the patient bedside hospitals can optimise clinical automation, business intelligence, operational efficiency and security, while dramatically improving clinical outcomes, safety and patient experience,” said Cooke.
