FORT WAYNE, Ind.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--EXTENSION, Inc. announced that it will showcase its advanced alarm safety and event response platform for nurses and other caregivers at the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) National Magnet Conference. EXTENSION will demonstrate its comprehensive clinical notification, HIPAA-compliant texting, and location-awareness solution that helps facilitate collaborative communication between members of the care team. Extension smart alarms also help reduce noise and clinical alarm fatigue that results from a steady stream of clinical events.
“However, blindly pushing data without regard to context has actually deepened the issue of alarm fatigue. EXTENSION - developed from the ground-up - has a much smoother integration process that leverages multi-system data to create an entire patient profile of events rather than a barrage of individual alerts.”
“Traditional alerting systems deliver primitive alerts, messages, and notifications by pushing rudimentary data from one location to another – in some cases, a mobile device,” said Todd Plesko, CEO at EXTENSION. “However, blindly pushing data without regard to context has actually deepened the issue of alarm fatigue. EXTENSION - developed from the ground-up - has a much smoother integration process that leverages multi-system data to create an entire patient profile of events rather than a barrage of individual alerts.”
The ANCC National Magnet Conference is an opportunity for nurses to gather and learn more about evidence-based care, as well as best practices for improving patient outcomes. EXTENSION will host booth #2212 at the conference where attendees can come to learn about The Joint Commission’s new National Patient Safety Goal (NPSG) on alarm safety in hospitals and alarm management best practices.
Attendees visiting EXTENSION’s booth will have the opportunity to see demonstrations of the EXTENSION platform which includes clinical workflow solutions for nurse call alarms, Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE) notifications, critical labs, biomedical device alarms, and more.
The EXTENSION system aggregates alarm, clinical event, and contextual data from multiple clinical systems and devices and applies advanced rules to ensure the delivery of near-real-time notifications to nurses and other care team members on their preferred mobile phones. Advanced rules processing allows relevant information to be assembled, filtered, and delivered to the appropriately assigned caregiver(s). Once the clinician receives the smart alarm he or she can engage with the entire care team with the push of a button. A true collaboration solution, EXTENSION saves nurses time and steps and leads to a better patient experience.
EXTENSION will be in booth #2212 during ANCC exhibiting hours from October 2-4 at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando FL.
