Lincor to set up patient care solution at Oasis
Al Ain, March 7, 2012
Lincor Solutions, in conjunction with its local partner Emitac Healthcare Solutions, has secured a major contract to install its MEDIVista bedside computing solution at the Oasis Hospital in Al Ain.
“We are extremely pleased in bringing Lincor’s state-of-the-art computing and multimedia solutions to one of the UAE’s leading hospitals. This strategic move would prove to be a trend-setter in providing cutting edge computing solutions for hospitals,” said Raghavan Srinivasan, CEO, Emitac Healthcare Solutions.
“We are committed to providing the best and most competitive solutions in the industry. EHS shall always support care givers in achieving their vision; to provide the finest products and services to its customers.” he added.
The Oasis Hospital will install advanced bedside computers from Lincor Solutions, to provide staff and patients with access to clinical and multimedia applications at the point of care.
The Oasis system includes specially designed touch screen computers installed at every bed for accessing critical hospital management and diagnostic systems, while also offering a suite of entertainment, education and communications services to patients.
“As the first hospital in the emirate of Abu Dhabi, we have been at the front end of many healthcare firsts in the country and we are proud to carry on that tradition. The Oasis Hospital is excited to be partnering with Lincor to provide a solution that enhances the patient experience as well as aids the clinicians,” said Brad Kellogg, senior vice president of Facility Management and Safety, Oasis Hospital.
“Patient wellbeing and outcomes will be improved by giving doctors and nurses the information they need, when and where they want it.”
“The Oasis Hospital continues to be a high performing, patient-focused hospital serving its community by providing quality and excellence in patient care,” said Canice McKee, sales director Middle East, Lincor Solutions.
“By delivering more services and applications direct to the point-of-care, with MEDIVista, it is optimizing its investments in technology and infrastructure, while improving patient safety and experience.”
This new system helps provide television, phone, internet, games, video telephony, educational content and hospital information, all on a secure, sterile bedside PC. Doctors and nurses can also use the same device to access patient records and clinical applications, and to record observations in real-time, thereby eliminating the need for additional hardware on the wards and the error-prone practice of re-keying information.
Lincor’s MEDIVista solution includes applications for improving the effectiveness of hospital processes such as catering and bed management. It offers an ideal platform for distributing and managing patient surveys, whether they are required for regulatory purposes or to support business intelligence and patient relationship management, a statement said.
At the same time hospitals can mitigate the cost of providing essential clinical bedside access by generating revenue from patient entertainment and other services, it added. – TradeArabia News Service
