LincOS technology platform will enhance patient experience and improve clinical workflows
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (November 4, 2015) — Lincor Solutions today announced it has been selected to provide patient engagement technology to Northeast Methodist Hospital, a campus of Methodist Hospital, in northeast San Antonio, Texas. The 179 licensed-bed facility will implement Lincor’s full suite of software and applications driven by the industry’s leading LincOS platform.
In addition to providing patients with access to communication services, entertainment content and patient education opportunities through multiple devices, the LincOS platform allows clinicians to access a patient’s clinical information to share charts, scans and test results with the patient and “prescribe” educational materials that help patients better understand their care prior to discharge. Patients also have access to a menu of entertainment options including television, video-on-demand, games, and audiobooks, as well as Internet, email and voice- and video-call capabilities.
“Lincor’s LincOS technology gives us the opportunity to give our patients a better experience. An experience they have come to expect in this connected world we live in today. The partnership with Lincor will also help us automate clinical workflows and improve efficiency,” said Terry Treadwell, COO for Northeast Methodist Hospital.
Northeast Methodist Hospital will implement the entire suite of access options to the LincOS platform to give the patient and the hospital the flexibility to meet their goals. PatientLINC, a personal smart device at the bedside, MediaLINC, driving clinical use cases through existing smart TVs, and ClinicalLINC, creating personal point of care documentation access for providers, will all be utilized across the Northeast Methodist Hospital campus.
Lincor’s LincOS platform is a powerful operating system that drives critical patient engagement tools as well as proprietary and third party applications to improve the patient experience. The platform also delivers critical non-clinical functions such as concierge services, dietary, and environmental services applications.
“We are excited to partner with Northeast Methodist Hospital to support their efforts to bring the latest technology to their patients and providers. Utilizing our LincOS platform to drive patient engagement, satisfaction and clinical outcomes, is a game-changer in how the patient experience is delivered,” said Chris Cashwell, Lincor’s Senior Vice-President of Strategy and Marketing.
