MEDarchon, a leader in healthcare communications technology, today announced that Signature Healthcare and its physican group have selected QUARC for care-team communications and data analytics throughout the enterprise.

Signature Healthcare is a 217-bed, non-profit healthcare delivery system serving Southeastern Massachusetts. Its affiliated physician organization, Signature Medical Group, employs more than 150 physicians practicing in 18 ambulatory locations throughout southeastern Massachusetts.

"We are pleased to partner with MEDarchon,” said Dale J. Ellenberg, M.D., FACEP, who serves as Signature Healthcare’s director of medical education and as a member of its departments of medicine and emergency medicine. "Their software is a perfect next step for taking our clinical communications and care-team collaboration to even higher standards of excellence, for which we are well known."

MEDarchon's QUARC exceeds traditional healthcare communications such as text and paging. Its secure, streamlined platform enables care teams to do away with multiple devices for communications. By reducing alert and information fatigue among individual caregivers, the service improves clinician – and patient – experience.

QUARC can be used on Android and iOS mobile devices and has a web-based application for the desktop.

"We’re excited to be working with the dedicated team of engaged clinicians at Signature Healthcare who want to make a difference," said James Baxter, CEO of MEDarchon. “Understanding clinical workflows and providing proper contextual awareness helps busy clinicians gain efficiencies and improve the overall patient experience”. QUARC's unique approach to patient-centric messaging, a robust and customizable issues library, our intelligent routing and escalation process and real-time analytics have made it a popular choice of hospitals, health systems and related organizations.
