Sep 19, 2011, 10:30 ET from Vocollect Healthcare Systems, Inc.

PITTSBURGH, Sept. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Vocollect Healthcare Systems (www.accunurse.com and www.blog.accunurse.com), a business unit of Intermec, Inc. (NYSE: IN) announces an expansion of its AccuNurse product to now include full, interdisciplinary clinical care plans, and the release of CliniConsole, a clinical dashboard that monitors resident and patient health trends at enterprise, regional and individual facility levels.

The AccuNurse clinical care plan is the industry's first and only interactive solution that provides real-time documentation via voice to trigger care plan suggestions using real and dynamic data. The new care plan also allows users to trigger point-of-care tasks to team members as care plans change. The assessment module provides the ability to quickly create voice-driven assessments to expand the value of voice beyond the CNA and to other key members of the interdisciplinary care team as appropriate. Updates also include voice support at the point of care for the Interact II Stop and Watch Assessment, and iPad support.

CliniConsole is AccuNurse's dashboard tool that provides corporate and facility leadership with the ability to self-monitor AccuNurse, both with key clinical outcomes such as ADL trending, and user performance and compliance.  CliniConsole provides key visibility into the data that drives the value of AccuNurse beyond the capability of site-level  reports, and helps organizations to easily determine strengths and weaknesses so that they can address gaps needed to remain competitive.

"With so much attention focused on healthcare reform and compliance, it's more crucial than ever for provider organizations to use the most progressive, cutting-edge technology to monitor and measure health trends and clinical performance," said Amy Harvey, Vice President of Product Development at Vocollect Healthcare Systems.  "Our new care plan functionality enables the interdisciplinary team to have a real-time view into the evolving care plans for each resident and patient, enabling better care and more interventions when problems arise. The CliniConsole dashboard pulls it altogether in a productive way to provide snapshots of trending data for patients and residents on multiple reporting levels of the enterprise, making this not only a useful tool for the clinical team but also for the operations teams. Both of these tools help organizations position themselves to deliver the best care possible and at the lowest possible cost."

CliniConsole will be commercially available on December 31, 2011 and the interdisciplinary clinical care plans will be commercially available in Q1 of 2012.
