Wescom and Shands Jacksonville testing new nursing software

Wescom Products for Healthcare has entered into a partnership with Shands Jacksonville to conduct a nurse call outcome study to test Wescom's new nursing-call ProNet.Net management software.

By CBR Staff Writer

The results of the study and subsequent final development of the nursing station software will help reduce hospital costs, increase the nursing unit’s flexibility, and improve the patient’s overall hospital healthcare experience, it is hoped.

The three-month beta test is being conducted in a live environment at Shands Jacksonville on the new orthopedic and neurology units, with planned rollouts in additional units hospital-wide.

The new platform is easier to deploy and maintain, Wescom claims, making it seamless for hospital information technology personnel to manage. Work-flows, including patient requests, staff assignments, unit management, and reports, are analyzed and modified. In addition, as a unit’s needs change, the software can be customized to help hospital administration alleviate a staffing crunch.

Wescom said that it is continually gathering feedback from Shands Jacksonville and integrating these responses into the development process.
