Northwest Michigan Surgery Center has chosen Versus Technology's Advantages Real-time Locating System (RTLS) to automate the workflow.

The Versus RTLS comprises Clearview Badge coupled with the Versus Advantages software.

The clinic patients will be given a small Clearview Badge which emits a safe Infrared signal and its Versus Advantages software facilitates clinics to capture, display and report on several patient care elements.

Versus Advantages improves patient flow and documentation of caregiver and patient interactions, while enhancing communication and efficiency.

The RTLS will be integrated to the clinic’s SourceMedical Vision EHR and to the clinic’s scheduling system to automate patient badge assignments.

Northwest Michigan Surgery Center CEO Jim Stilley said through the immediate feedback they’ll provide patients and their families, they expect the solution to have a positive impact on patient satisfaction.

"Behind the scenes, we’ll be improving our patient flow processes through automation and continuously collecting data that will allow us to evaluate and report on our procedures," Stilley said.
