31 January 2012 - Advanced Computer Software Group plc (Advanced), a leading provider of software and IT services to the UK health, care and business sectors, announces that it now supplies mobile devices inclusive of airtime as part of its iConnect and iNurse mobile working solutions - providing a complete “one stop shop” for mobile working in the community care sector.
8,000 new users of Advanced mobile solutions, complete with either an Orange or Vodafone airtime package, have been added in the current financial year to date (year ending 29 February 2012).
Advanced’s iConnect and iNurse are mobile solutions for health and care applications, which support high quality care in patients’ homes. Benefits include improved service delivery, reduced costs and the provision of both data security and lone worker safety. The UK market opportunity for iNurse and iConnect currently stands at approximately 465,000 users.
Advanced’s iConnect provides a mobile point of care solutions to carers in the community. In addition to delivering real-time task lists and care recipient data to care workers via their mobile phones, the solution records actual arrival and departure times. To prove attendance, care workers simply touch in and out at each visit, using their NFC-enabled mobile devices coupled with radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags fitted within service users’ homes.
Advanced’s iNurse is a mobile patient management system, which enables community clinician and nursing teams to record and communicate patient care information using handheld Windows Mobile and BlackBerry devices. iNurse allows healthcare professionals to access, record and communicate patient care information and records, using a Smartphone at the point of care, thereby allowing them to increase both the time spent with patients and the number of patient visits.
Vin Murria, Chief Executive of Advanced, commented: “Our simple “one stop shop approach” of mobile devices plus airtime enables us to rapidly deliver iConnect and iNurse to more care professionals resulting in increased patient-facing time and significant improvements in efficiency.”
“The strength of our product offering is clearly demonstrated by the 8,000 new users this year of Advanced Integrated Mobile Solutions with leading network providers.”
