EXTENSION, INC. Will Participate at the 2012 mHealth Summit Presented by HIMSS
FORT WAYNE, Ind. --(Business Wire)--
INC., announced today that it will exhibit for the third time at the
annual mHealth Summit. EXTENSION will showcase Device
Messaging, a HIPAA-compliant texting solution for physicians,
nurses, and other care team members. The EXTENSION
Mobile app enables secure texting between corporate IP phones that
nurses use and smartphones that physicians use on and off campus.
Currently, EXTENSION's clinical alerting solutions and Device Messaging
are being utilized by a number of privately-owned and
government-operated acute care hospitals. Within these enterprises, the
EXTENSION texting app is being used by a variety of care providers and
other staff across multiple units including the Emergency Department,
Obstetrics and Gynecology, IT, and more.
EXTENSION representatives attending the mHealth Summit - including
members of its executive and product management teams - are interested
in meeting with other HIT vendors to identify those needing a middleware
to transmit and transfer data from other systems, to create alerts, or
to enable secure text messaging and interaction.
Accordig to Todd Plesko, Chief Executive Officer at EXTENSION, "A
growing opportunity for us is B2B partnerships as we are the only
alerting and communication middleware in healthcare that enables other
companies to move data, send alerts on various devices and mediums, and
allow users to interact via secure text messaging. For instance, we're
working with an EMR vendor to help them send SMS text messages to their
patients as part of Stage 2 Meaningful Use and send acknowledgments of
lab results back into the EMR. Similarly we have medical device
manufacturer partners that need middleware to alert caregivers when an
event occurs. If you are a device, application, or database vendor and
you want to move data intelligently, create an alert based on an event,
and allow people to interact via a smartphone app or a secure text
message then you need an intelligent middleware like EXTENSION or you
need to build it yourself which is very costly and time consuming. We
can enable this advanced functionality with minimal investment."
The 2012 mHealth
Summit - presented by the Healthcare Information and Management
Systems Society (HIMSS) in partnership with the Foundation for the
National Institutes of Health (FNIH) and the mHealth Alliance - will
take place on December 3-5 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention
Center in the Washington, DC area. The theme for the fourth
international annual summit is "Connecting the Mobile Health Ecosystem".
EXTENSION will exhibit critical lab notifications, electronic order
notifications including STAT and CPOE orders, full report notifications,
HIPAA-compliant texting, and more in booth #1023.
Attendees wanting to schedule business development or sales meetings at
the conference can email Information@OpenTheRedBox.com.
