CCS is a game-changer for VA Medical Centers. All healthcare providers receive the same notifications at the same time, making high-performance patient care a reality for our Veterans.

Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) January 28, 2013

Universal Understanding (UU) today announced the further expansion of its VA Medical Center solutions delivery with the launch of CCS, a care-team focused communications solution that streamlines information flow across designated healthcare teams. Instant notifications about patient lab results, care directives, and more can be sent to designated clinicians, dramatically impacting patient outcomes and satisfaction and improving hospital quality ratings.

“CCS is a game-changer for VA Medical Centers because it introduces real-time alerts across the care team,” said Tom Michie, Director of Sales, Healthcare and Scientific, at UU. “Nurses no longer need to corral up the care team to share patient information or search for providers at different stations or on different floors. Now all healthcare providers receive the same notifications about individual patients on hand-held devices, making high-performance patient care a reality for our Veterans.”

UU has partnered with Extension on the CCL platform, leveraging its Nurse Call System to seamlessly prioritize, escalate, verbalize, and audit patient care needs and directives.

“UU brings tremendous expertise in VA Medical Center technology deployments, and the team’s knowledge of Cisco solutions makes this partnership exceedingly successful,” said Rick Williams, Public Sector Sales Vice President, at Extension Inc.
