    TORONTO, Feb. 17 /CNW/ - Medworxx, the makers of a strategic software
platform that hospitals use to communicate, aggregate, and analyze knowledge,
announced today that there are now over 10,000 acute care beds in Canada being

    The Medworxx UMS monitors patient stay, highlights care delays, assesses
discharge readiness, provides consistency in the care process and an
understanding of when the patient should be discharged, ensuring optimum
patient safety. The product provides the ability to assess, monitor and
ultimately reduce, patient length-of-stay resulting in cost savings for the

    "Medworxx is pleased to have hospitals and regions across Canada using
our software to increase productivity, reduce costs, and improve patient flow
and safety", said Dan Matlow, President & CEO, Medworxx. "Initiatives like
eHealth Ontario's Wait Times priority, which will reduce emergency room wait
times and improve access to alternative levels of care, will help to continue
the expansion of this product line for Medworxx. We look forward to continued
penetration of our Utilization Management System throughout Canada, along with
our recently launched Bed Optimization System." The Medworxx Bed Optimization
System (BOS) improves patient flow by providing a real-time clinical status of
beds, and resources with a view to establishing efficiencies in bed management
as well as managing specific bed equipment requirements, and availability of
acute, rehabilitation, continuing care or long-stay beds.
