EXTENSION to introduce unified care team collaboration solution

Feb 28, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- EXTENSION, INC., a developer of critical alerting and alarm management software for hospitals, has announced that it will introduce its unified care team collaboration solution, EXTENSION Engage, at the upcoming Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society, or HIMSS, conference.

According to the company, the EXTENSION Engage blends alerting, messaging and presence to empower clinicians with the means to maintain mobile awareness of patient progression at every stage of their hospital stay. The EXTENSION Engage solution features an mobile user interface that facilitates collaboration and consultation among clinicians in their roles on the dynamic care team.

Todd Plesko, EXTENSION's CEO, commented: "EXTENSION Engage was designed using everything we have learned about clinician's collaboration needs. For the first time, clinicians can use one app on one device for all of their alerting and secure messaging needs. No other solution can integrate to as many clinical and administrative hospital information systems as EXTENSION, offer comprehensive alarm management, and send secure text messages to IP-enabled devices like Cisco, SpectraLink and Vocera as well as smartphones including Apple and Android.

"This is an enterprise solution that addresses both the friction of inefficient communications and the primary causes of alarm fatigue. There is heavy demand for this level of efficient collaboration in nearly every hospital in the US and beyond and we're very excited to be the first to launch both alerting and messaging on all the prevailing devices used by clinicians today."
