NASHVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- MEDarchon, a leader in healthcare communications technology, today announced that its software agreement with Lane Regional Medical Center in Zachary, La., has been renewed for three years.
In addition, MEDarchon recently completed an integration with Lane's Telligence nurse call system, allowing requests made at the patient's bedside to be driven directly to the appropriate member or members of the nursing team. This integration, along with QUARC's patented message routing and escalation features, helps to ensure that patient needs get handled as quickly as possible and that requests do not fall through the cracks.
"At Lane Regional, we continuously strive for excellence in nursing and quality of care. As an early clinical partner with MEDarchon, we've worked closely together for over three years to improve and enhance our nursing and care team communications. We are pleased to continue this important relationship with MEDarchon," said Staci H. Sullivan, MSN, NEA-BC, who serves as Lane's Chief Nursing Officer. "Our teams have worked well together, and MEDarchon has proven to be a good listener. They understand our needs and the challenges faced by community hospitals."
"We are delighted to continue working with Lane Regional," said James Baxter, CEO of MEDarchon. "Lane is a progressive healthcare organization, striving to leverage new technology to improve healthcare delivery while lowering costs. At MEDarchon, our mission is to help make patients safer by improving upon outdated communication workflows that have been shown to cause medical errors. And we do this by building tools that clinicians actually want to use, and by working with partners, like Lane Regional, who share our vision and understanding of what QUARC can do."
MEDarchon's QUARC exceeds, and improves upon traditional healthcare communication tools such as basic, secure texting apps and legacy paging systems. QUARC is a secure, patient-centric communication platform that was built for the healthcare space. More than just texting, QUARC's features and functionality have been designed to streamline healthcare workflows and help prevent breakdowns in communication that can cause errors. For those hospitals that are looking for a tool that can do more than check a compliance box, QUARC is a secure communication tool that was built to help make clinicians' lives easier and patients a bit safer.
