152 VA Medical Centers to Implement Intelligent InSites to Improve Health Care Efficiency

Intelligent InSites to Provide Enterprise-Wide Software Solution for Department of Veterans Affairs’ $543 Million RTLS Contract

Fargo, ND – February 20, 2013 – Intelligent InSites, Inc., the leading provider of real-time operational intelligence for healthcare in the government and commercial sectors, has been selected to provide the enterprise-wide software solution for the Department of Veterans Affairs’  (VA) $543 million Real Time Location System (RTLS) contract, as a subcontractor to the prime contractor, HP Enterprise Services.

The five-year contract will provide 152 medical centers in the 21 Veterans Integrated Service Networks (VISNs) and seven Consolidated Medical Outpatient Pharmacy facilities with a real-time, system-wide solution to help improve operational efficiency, quality, satisfaction, and compliance. The solution supports VA’s objectives to decrease operational costs, reduce delays in patient care, and increase clinical efficiencies and staff productivity.

“The flexibility of the Intelligent InSites platform, including its ability to empower multiple applications to deliver real-time operational intelligence across multiple use cases and multiple facilities, supports VA’s vision to improve health care efficiency across the VA enterprise,” said Kimberly Brayley, Director, RTLS Project Management Office, Veterans Health Administration.

Real-Time Operational Intelligence

By automatically collecting data from millions of RTLS and RFID tags on VA medical equipment, surgical instruments, and supplies, the Intelligent InSites solution will provide VA with unprecedented visibility, analytics, and intelligence into its operational processes.  Initial use cases include asset management, cath lab supply management, sterile processing workflow, and automated temperature monitoring.  Future use cases include patient wander management, hand hygiene monitoring, emergency department workflow, and operating room workflow.

Enterprise-Wide Architecture

The Intelligent InSites software platform is designed to span multiple hospitals across large healthcare systems, aggregating and processing data to provide real-time operational intelligence at the department level, hospital level, and healthcare system level.  At the level of a VA Medical Center, the Intelligent InSites solution will help VA employees impact operational processes and patient care in real time.  At a regional and national level, the enterprise-wide capabilities of the Intelligent InSites platform will allow VA to monitor, benchmark, and improve system-wide operational performance and process improvement initiatives, resulting in increased healthcare efficiency and improved Veteran care.

Open Platform, Open APIs

A fundamental aspect of the Intelligent InSites solution is the ability for 3rd-party developers, IT departments, and healthcare solution providers to build real-time-enabled solutions on the Intelligent InSites software platform, or to integrate with the Intelligent InSites solution to provide or leverage real-time information from across the enterprise.  Everything within the Intelligent InSites platform is accessible through open application programming interfaces (APIs), allowing developers to easily build new solutions and leverage the real-time operational intelligence within the Intelligent InSites solution.

For VA, current integrations to the Intelligent InSites platform include Censis Technologies for sterile processing and surgical instrument tracking, WaveMark for cath lab supply management, and VA’s asset management solution, AEMS/MERS.  In addition, Intelligent InSites will integrate with VA’s electronic health record software, VistA CPRS, to augment operational processes with contextually-relevant clinical data.

“The VA healthcare system is a recognized leader in healthcare—both for the quality of their clinical care and for their use of healthcare information technology to transform and improve their operations and patient care,” said Margaret Laub, President and CEO of Intelligent InSites.  “As the current enterprise platform provider to VA for its successful deployment across the seven medical centers of VISN 11, we are extremely honored to expand our service to the VA and provide system-wide service to our nation’s Veterans.”

Group Health Selects Intelligent InSites’ RTLS Software to Make “Medical Centers of the Future” a Reality Today

Intelligent InSites’ RTLS solution to enable the leading consumer-governed healthcare system to create the ideal patient experience

Fargo, ND – August 15, 2012 – Intelligent InSites, Inc., the leading provider of enterprise real-time location systems (RTLS) software helping hospitals improve patient care and increase healthcare efficiency while leveraging any RTLS sensor technology, has announced today that Group Health – the leading consumer-governed healthcare system, serving over 625,000 community members with 25 Group Health medical facilities – has selected Intelligent InSites to help make medical centers of the future a reality today.

Group Health began in 1947 as a community coalition dedicated to making quality health care available and affordable. Today it is one of the few health care organizations in the country governed by consumers. Care is provided by Group Health Physicians and other clinicians at 25 Group Health-operated medical facilities. In service areas where Group Health doesn’t own facilities and for plans offering more choice, a network of nearly 9,000 community clinicians and 41 hospitals meets member health care needs.

“We are proud to partner with the leading consumer-governed healthcare system in creating the ideal patient experience,” said Doug Burgum, Chairman of Intelligent InSites. “Group Health’s pioneering approach to care delivery will surely become a model for using innovative solutions to achieve the maximum level of efficiency and patient satisfaction.”

Scheduled to open in December 2012, the Group Health Puyallup Medical Center was designed based on direct feedback from members, clinicians, and staff.  This medical center of the future allows easy access to services, better care, a low-stress environment, and efficient use of resources. A few of the patient-centric innovations include streamlining patient flow and eliminating waiting rooms.  Patients will be able to check in and go straight to their care room, and services like lab will be brought to the patient with one click of the Intelligent InSites RTLS software.

By leveraging the Intelligent InSites solution, Group Health can have the right room, the right staff, and the right equipment ready for the patient – reducing patient wait times and cycle times, which in turn will allow Group Health to meet the needs of their growing member population and provide a highly-satisfying patient experience.

Real-time location data will be provided by CenTrak IR/RF RTLS hardware, which is integrated with Intelligent InSites’ enterprise RTLS software platform.

With the Intelligent InSites business intelligence and reporting capabilities, Group Health will be able to further optimize patient flow  and improve asset management, as vast amounts of automatically-collected data can be analyzed through easy-to-use real-time dashboards and reports.

Minnesota Veterans Home Creates Friendly and Safe Environment through Implementation of RTLS

Enterprise Real-Time Location System (RTLS) from Intelligent InSites Goes Live at the Adult Day Center at the Minnesota Veterans Home in Minneapolis

Minneapolis, MN – April 23, 2012 Intelligent InSites, Inc., the leading provider of enterprise real-time location systems (RTLS) software helping healthcare providers improve patient and resident care, announced today that the Minnesota Veterans Home in Minneapolis, MN, has implemented Intelligent InSites’ real-time location system (RTLS) solution to create a friendly and safe environment for the Adult Day Center program participants.

The Minnesota Veterans Home (MVH) in Minneapolis has recently opened the doors to the new Adult Day Center, which is only the second program of its kind in the country run by a State Veterans Home, and the first to be housed in a historic building. The main objective of the Adult Day Center is to keep Veterans in their homes for as long as possible, while providing much needed respite care for their caregivers. Eligible Veterans, spouses, widows, and Gold Star Parents enjoy a unique environment in which they can achieve or maintain physical, mental, and psychosocial well-being, while still being able to remain at home. The center provides a full range of customized services including health care, recreation, behavioral health, and nutrition, as well as additional services such as bathing and a barber shop.

“Our innovative program promotes person-centered care and offers support and relief to the families of our Veterans,” said Craig Barness, Acting Director of the Adult Day Center at the Minnesota Veterans Home in Minneapolis. “Through the use of our RTLS solution, they can rest assured that their love ones’ needs are being met in a safe, enjoyable atmosphere.”

The program participants can request assistance, no matter where they are in the facility, with a simple button press on their RTLS-enabled pendant. Their exact location is then delivered to staff members who can provide a timely response.

With the ability to define specific notification rules, the InSites solution will also proactively impact the safety of program participants. For example, if a person is in a certain location, such as bathroom, for too long, an automated notification can be sent to appropriate personnel who can assist the person in need. In addition, the notification can be automatically escalated to another team member if the initial recipient is not able to respond in a timely manner.

According to Chris Olson, Sales Manager at Momentum Healthware, the Intelligent InSites partner who provided and implemented the InSites solution at the Veterans Home in Minneapolis, “The InSites solution will help better serve the needs of Veterans who can go about their lives with an enhanced level of independence and dignity.”

“We’re proud to be working with the Minnesota Veterans Homes,” said Dr. Ray Gruby, Chief Medical Officer at Intelligent InSites. “It is extremely rewarding for us to know that, through our solution and our partners, we can profoundly improve the quality of life of our Veterans and their families.”

About the Minnesota Veterans Home (MVH) – Minneapolis

The Minnesota Veterans Home (MVH) – Minneapolis is situated on 52 wooded acres along the Mississippi River and is home to Veterans who are in need of skilled care and domiciliary services. It has over 400 skilled care and domiciliary residents and employs approximately 600 staff members. For more information, visit http://www.mvh.state.mn.us/minneapolis/index.html.

Family HealthCare Center Selects RTLS Solution from Intelligent InSites to Improve Efficiency and Care

Real-time locating system (RTLS) enables leading community health center to serve more patients, improve quality, and lower cost

Fargo, ND – February 15, 2012 – Family HealthCare Center (FHC), a private, non-profit healthcare provider serving the communities of Cass County, ND, and Clay County, MN, announced today that their patients will benefit from faster and more cost-efficient care as a result of implementing a Real-Time Locating System (RTLS) solution from Intelligent InSites.

Intelligent InSites, Inc., the leading provider of enterprise real-time location systems (RTLS) software helping hospitals improve patient care and increase healthcare efficiency while leveraging any RTLS technology, will implement the InSites RTLS solution in the Family HealthCare Center’s new facility in downtown Fargo, ND.

The $15 million investment in the new facility, partially funded by a federal Health Resources and Services Administration grant, enables Family HealthCare Center to consolidate most of their services into a single location, allowing FHC to better fulfill their mission of providing quality family-centered health care that is accessible, culturally competent, and efficient. FHC patients have access to affordable yet comprehensive primary care services, including adult and pediatric care, pregnancy and women’s health, immunizations, dental, lab, x-ray, pharmacy, wellness, and education. The new site will nearly double Family HealthCare Center’s space and triple the number of medical examination rooms.

“At Family HealthCare Center, we strive to be innovative in our approach to care,” said Patricia Patron, Executive Director at Family HealthCare Center. “The InSites solution will help us be more efficient with our scarce resources, so we can serve more patients with the highest quality standards and lower cost.”

The InSites solution will track, manage, and display in real-time, through its unified user interface, the location and status of patients, staff, and equipment, as they move throughout the facility, driving better communication and more efficient use of resources. With the InSites business intelligence and reporting capabilities, Family HealthCare Center will be able to better understand the flow of patients and asset utilization, allowing them to continually evaluate and improve their performance.

Through the implementation of the InSites solution, FHC also will automate many manual processes, such as monitoring temperature of refrigerators and other temperature-sensitive devices. With the temperature monitoring application, staff will be able to receive notifications if the temperature goes beyond a specified threshold, so corrective actions can be taken and then documented automatically. The InSites solution will also provide reports to meet regulatory compliance.

In addition, Family HealthCare Center will leverage the integration capabilities of the InSites Platform, tying together several existing healthcare information systems, such as the Simplex EZ Care nurse call system, driving even more value from their current technology investments.

“We are proud to partner with one of the country’s leading-edge community health centers, helping them in solving the issues facing America’s health system,” said Doug Burgum, President and CEO of Intelligent InSites. “The Family HealthCare Center is a role-model for using innovative solutions to improve patient care, increase staff efficiency, and lower healthcare costs.”

According to the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC), community health centers, like FHC, have been providing affordable primary and preventive care for over 40 years, serving the primary healthcare needs of more than 20 million patients in over 8,000 locations across the United States. Community health centers play a crucial role during tough economic times, providing affordable health services for millions of uninsured and jobless Americans. The local approach to health care, combined with an innovative emphasis on comprehensive preventive care, generates $24 billion in annual savings to the health care system – to taxpayers and private payers alike.


About Family HealthCare Center
