This is the first year Solstice Medical will be featuring its new Surgical Supply Chain Business Intelligence Platform in the Intelligent Hospital™ Pavilion, simulating the latest technologies in an expanded healthcare environment.
Solstice’s healthcare information technology (HIT) platform, DOCK-to-DOC® real-time inventory management solution improves patient outcomes, decreases OR time and dramatically improves provider and patient satisfaction scores through its innovative surgical workflow and proactive business intelligence applications. The system has been developed using the latest technology and is able to be deployed in a variety of healthcare supply chain environments, from patient billing through the operating room.
“We welcome the opportunity to be a part of the 2014 Intelligent Hospital™ Pavilion and showcase, our end-to-end inventory management solutions are the only technologies on the market that seamlessly offers you the control you desire with actionable business intelligence to improve your operations,” stated Solstice CEO Todd Melioris. “Our DOCK-to-DOC® open architected platform will also show participants how to leverage their existing IT investments across their surgical supply chain,” continued Melioris.
The Intelligent Hospital™ Pavilion within HIMSS14 has been designed and developed by the RFID in Healthcare Consortium (RHCC), a not-for-profit, educational organization our sponsoring technology vendors. The objective of the Intelligent Hospital™ Pavilion is to demonstrate the changing healthcare patient envi¬ronment by integrating advanced clinical devices with layers of interconnectivity among supporting technologies such as auto-ID, RFID, RTLS, Sensors, and Wireless along with point-of-care information delivery and communications devices. The combination of these clinical devices, systems and supporting technologies addresses many of the issues affecting workflow and potentially impacting patient care and safety.

I am very excited to see the progress they have made with their software and use of RFID and bar code technologies, which will help improve upon patient care and patient safety in the health industry. We wish them well," stated Harry Pappas, The Intelligent Health Association President & CEO.
