Hill-Rom Enhances NaviCare WatchChild with Remote Perinatal Monitoring

June 25, 2008 - Hill-Rom this week said it entered into two new agreements to will enhance and add integrated functions and value for the company’s NaviCare WatchChild solution.

An agreement with AirStrip Technologies brings the value of the innovative AirStrip OB product, a state-of-the-art software application allows obstetricians to use their own PDAs and Smartphones to remotely access real-time waveform data for both the mother and fetus. The interface between Hill-Rom’s WatchChild solution and AirStrip OB will be configured to function with Hill-Rom's original WatchChild solution as well as the enhanced version introduced this past April.

In addition, Hill-Rom’s relationship with ExitCare, L.L.C. will integrate an educational component, the ExitCare Labor & Delivery product, consisting of hundreds of labor and delivery patient education topics augmented with color illustrations. This will serve as a tool to facilitate communication between clinicians with patients and family members.

The newly introduced, enhanced WatchChild solution evolved from a recognized need to provide an integrated and intuitive way to manage obstetrical operations, including reporting, communication, care plan development, skin and fall assessment screening and operating room record/pre-anesthesia checklists. The NaviCare WatchChild solution also offers state-of-the-art data archiving capability to help manage long-and-short-term liability risks for hospitals and caregivers.

The NaviCare WatchChild solution is part of the NaviCare Clinical Operations Platform. In February 2008, Hill-Rom introduced an enhanced NaviCare Clinical Operations Platform designed to support hospital efforts to provide improved patient safety, quality of care and operational efficiency.
