rL Solutions launches new version of Infection Surveillance and Control
TORONTO, Oct. 18 /CNW/ - rL Solutions, the leading provider of healthcare
quality and safety software, today announced the release of Infection
MonitorPro (IMPro) version 1.1, the latest version of their new Infection
Surveillance and Control product.
International Infection Prevention Week (IIPW), running from October 14th
to the 20th, is entirely dedicated to educating the healthcare industry and
the general public about the importance of reducing infection risks. "It
seemed appropriate to release our latest version of IMPro during this week,"
said Colin Hung, VP Alliances & Marketing, rL Solutions. "Reducing the
infection rates at healthcare facilities and allowing Infection Control
Practitioners to spend more time on prevention instead of administration are
the primary goals of the IMPro product," Hung added.
Developed in collaboration with clients over the past three years, IMPro
helps healthcare organizations respond faster and more efficiently to
real/potential infections. By monitoring hospital systems in real-time,
Infection Control Practitioners (ICP's) are well informed to make life saving
decisions more quickly, making healthcare safer for patients, providers and
Enhancements incorporated into version 1.1 of IMPro include:
- More data analysis capabilities - ability to analyze healthcare
acquired infections (HAIs) in multiple dimensions
- Expanded charting capabilities
- Full journaling of ICP notes/comments for each patient
- An improved user interface
- Performance improvements
"The choice we made to build our product on Microsoft's .NET platform is
really paying off." said Hung. "By leveraging the flexibility and power of the
.NET platform and Microsoft's SQL Server, we were able to complete this latest
version of our product in a very short time - 4 months. This rapid development
would not have been possible without our investment in development discipline
and Microsoft's technologies. We're really excited to be able to offer clients
this enhanced functionality."
IMPro version 1.1 is now available from rL Solutions.
