TORONTO, April 12 /CNW/ - Medworxx Inc. ("Medworxx") (TSXV: MWX),
provider of healthcare solutions for patient flow, compliance and
education, is pleased to announce that they have signed their first UK
customer, Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals Trust.
The Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals Trust (the
Trust) will implement the Medworxx Utilisation Management System (UMS)
to provide evidence based clinical admission and discharge criteria
across all of their 900 bed Trust. Medworxx will be used to
standardise the admit and discharge decision making for appropriateness
of inpatients in Accident & Emergency and Medical Assessment Units,
ICU/CCU, Medical/Surgical Wards and Rehabilitation Wards. The Medworxx
UMS is currently in use at over 125 hospitals across Canada.
Medworxx UMS will enable the Trust to receive a continuum of data about
patients, blocks and gaps in delivering care. Operationally,
information from the tool will be used for daily decision making to
improve patient flow. The decision to implement the Medworxx solution
was made after the completion of a Bed Census Audit using the Medworxx
UMS by Model Advice DC Consulting Ltd UK, Medworxx' UK partner. Model
Advice DC is providing expert advice on establishing an overall
Utilisation Management Programme and mentoring on the use of the tool.
Diane Wake, Executive Director of Nursing and Operations, and Director
of Infection Prevention and Control at Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen
University Hospitals Trust stated "This is a time of great opportunity
for the Trust as we work towards moving into a new purpose built, state
of the art hospital in 2016. Medworxx UMS will play a key role in
enabling us to ensure our patients receive the right care, at the right
time, in the right place.
This is an important opportunity for Medworxx to introduce our solutions
into the United Kingdom", said Larry Vanier, Vice President of Decision
Support &Patient Flow, Medworxx. "We are excited to be working
alongside UK strategic partner, Model Advice DC Ltd, to advance the
health services delivery at such a respected organization as The Royal
Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals Trust.
