Hospital personnel don’t have time to waste
Arlington, MA (PRWEB) March 22, 2006 -–
Glance Networks, Inc., creators of the “one-button simple” Glance™ screen sharing service, today announced that Emergency Care Documentation Systems (ECDS) uses Glance to demonstrate their user friendly and cost reducing electronic charting systems technology to hospital emergency departments. Responding to the Bush administration’s stated goal of bringing widely accessible electronic health records to most Americans by 2014, ECDS uses Glance to easily show the benefits of replacing a hospital’s antiquated handwritten charts with electronic systems.
ECDS’s electronic medical system, EmpowER™, tracks patients from triage through discharge. Medical personnel can share records over their intranets, replacing outdated handwritten charts and eliminating incomplete patient records, delays in service, and errors caused by illegible handwriting. Hospitals can process patients far more efficiently during a large scale natural disaster and the company’s new BioAlert™ system can track bioterror attacks or epidemics. The challenge for ECDS, according to company Dr. President Seth Guterman, is communicating the benefits of their electronic systems to busy ED staff.
“Hospital personnel don’t have time to waste,” commented DR. Guterman. “We tried several web conferencing services to demonstrate our capabilities over the Internet, but complicated set ups and confusing software downloads were more than staff or hospital security systems wanted to deal with. And presenting our user-friendly medical systems using a complex tool made no sense.”
“With Glance, presenting to a hospital’s staff is simple,” said Guterman. “With a click of a mouse we easily demonstrate the value of electronic charting to administrators, ED doctors and nurses. There is no learning curve. We connect instantly and get right into our presentation. Glance is completely dependable. We rely on its user-friendly service to demonstrate EmpowER’s ability to improve clinical and fiscal health in Emergency Departments.”
Glance is a simple, reliable screen sharing service for hosting instant web demos and presentations. Anyone with an Internet connection can show what’s on their PC screen (software applications, presentations, documents, designs, pictures) to up to 15 locations at a time. Glance’s Guests Connect for Free™ flat-rate pricing allows an unlimited number of presentations for a simple, predictable price. Guests connect instantly from nearly any PC, Mac or Linux computer.
“Sales people need a simple web demo tool they can depend upon,” says Glance Networks’ CEO, Rich Baker. “ECDS has found that complicated web conferencing services are prone to connection problems and tend to distract prospects from the sales person’s pitch. Glance’s reliability and simplicity let ECDS easily and dependably communicate the value of their products to hospital staffs nationwide.”
Unlike traditional web conferencing, Glance guests connect in seconds. Glance’s simplicity and affordability is particularly attractive to small-to-medium sized businesses (SMB’s) and organizations that need a reliable screen sharing tool.
