Report Includes Evaluation of Emerging Category of Next Generation Nurse Call Solutions

“We are closing the loop on care to ensure that patient needs are met in a timely, consistent and measurable manner. We are honored to be named as a sample vendor in this space by Gartner.”

Amplion today announced that it has been listed in the Gartner report “Hype Cycle for Real-Time Health System Technologies, 2016” as a sample vendor for “Next-Generation Nurse Call”. Gartner classifies “Next-Generation Nurse Call” as being an “Innovation Trigger” which means it is a potential technology breakthrough that is emerging in the healthcare space.

In the report, Gartner’s healthcare IT analysts track important concepts, standards and technologies, from embryonic to mainstream, that enable a situationally aware and patient-centric operational and management paradigm Gartner refers to as the real-time health system (RTHS). Gartner’s research is considered a vital reference for healthcare provider CIOs when assessing the value of technologies that enable the RTHS.

“Nurse call, as it stands today, is not uniquely positioned to meet the needs of evolving care delivery models and patient experience requirements,” said Gartner.¹ “RTHS solutions such as clinical communication and collaboration (CC&C), interactive patient care (IPC), and alarm and notification platforms are beginning to assume nurse call responsibilities.”

As such, Gartner advises healthcare CIOs and clinical leadership to “investigate functional alternatives to nurse call, such as interactive patient care, CC&C, and alarm and notification platforms, or a combination of these RTHS solutions.”

“We are committed to pushing past the historic limitations within the nurse call space to help hospitals keep pace with the changing demands and expectations they face in today’s environment, as well as the technological innovations and opportunities that are available to them,” said Tom Stephenson, Amplion’s Chief Executive Officer. “We are closing the loop on care to ensure that patient needs are met in a timely, consistent and measurable manner. We are honored to be named as a sample vendor in this space by Gartner.”

Amplion Alert, the industry’s first care assurance platform combines advanced nurse call features with a suite of specialized messaging and reminder tools and alarm management on a single platform that can easily be upgraded with future enhancements. The platform also eliminates the need for expensive middleware and allows providers to purchase features and functionality as needs evolve and budget allows. It was specifically designed by clinicians to address the gaps in communication and documented shortcomings of legacy nurse call systems within hospitals across the country.
