ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - February 21, 2011) - HCL Technologies
Ltd. (HCL), a leading global IT services provider, today launched ACTIVE CARE EXCELLENCE (ACE) SmartCare Clinical Decision Support solution at the HiMSS Conference in Orlando.
ACE SmartCare is a patient-centered, real time care management solution that dramatically improves patient care as soon as patients arrive at the hospital through automated, continuous clinical surveillance and care measures delivered via alerts to physicians at the point of care. This more efficient delivery of care and compliance also results in significant savings for health care provider organizations. Due to recent legislation, healthcare providers are under tremendous pressure to improve patient-centered care while also continuously monitoring for evidence-based medicine interventions and core-measure compliance. ACE SmartCare uses automation to alleviate some of the pressures providers are up against.
"ACE SmartCare is a breakthrough Clinical Decision Support solution that ensures that quality measures are met and evidence-based medicine is practiced at Orlando Health," said Rick Schooler, CIO of Orlando Health. "Working with HCL on ACE SmartCare will directly enhance our business by improving the efficiency and quality of care delivery."
SmartCare is a highly customizable mobile device-enabled solution featuring unified messaging through voice, data alerts and notifications across clinical settings. The ACE Solution Suite utilizes a predictive analytics model to generate configurable alerts, responses, escalations mechanisms and dashboards to help Providers maintain compliance. In addition, a plug in to an EMR clinical IT system through SmartCare improves Providers timely delivery of care.
Pradep Nair, Sr. Vice President of the Healthcare Practice at HCL, said, "With HCL's extensive knowledge in the healthcare space and its continuous drive to create innovative solutions for its customers, ACE SmartCare will play an important part in transforming the way healthcare professionals work and provide patient care. Our research and feedback from customers and prospects affirm that no product or solution in the market helped providers meet critical measures and compliance requirements, until ACE SmartCare."
Orlando Health has utilized ACE SmartCare to establish rules, data surveillance, alerts and accountability to improve the flow of information to doctors. Specific benefits of ACE SmartCare include:
- A meaningful approach to clinical decision support through proactive real-time alerts and messaging at point of care, before patient discharge
- Proactive monitoring of quality measures to ensure no opportunities are missed -- a prospective rather than retrospective approach
- Evidence-based care delivery that is both proactive and consistent
