BELMONT, Mich. – AvaSure, a leading provider of advanced audiovisual monitoring systems used to care for patients and protect caregivers, honored WakeMed Health & Hospitals with the Hub and Spoke Award as part of AvaPrize, its prestigious annual healthcare awards program.
The AvaPrize program honors individuals and organizations who have advanced patient and staff safety, eased the working lives of nurses and achieved new efficiencies in care delivery. Winners demonstrate the ever-evolving role of continuous video monitoring as it becomes a vital tool in patient care and staff development throughout a healthcare organization.
WakeMed Health & Hospitals’ honor, the Hub and Spoke Award, recognizes an organization with the most efficient use of the AvaSure TeleSitter® by multi-site organizations using a single remote central observation center.
“Most experts believe the post-pandemic U.S. healthcare system will be fundamentally different, as downward pressure on costs and a need to show value for dollars spent will fuel widespread reforms,” said Lisbeth Votruba, Vice President of Clinical Quality and Innovation at AvaSure. “WakeMed Health & Hospitals has played a significant role in making strides toward change with the use of our technology. As has been shown in numerous clinical and economic studies, AvaSure is in tune with the need for cost-effective, quality care.”
AvaSure selected WakeMed Health & Hospitals for the award because it has been using online reporting of nursing analytics data since July 2016. During this time, it has monitored 21,810 patients for a total of 732,024 hours. WakeMed Health & Hospitals has been consistently hovering near 80% utilization with devices in addition to expanding and adding more devices over the years.
The winners were honored during the company’s symposium Sept. 23-24. The AvaSure national symposium brings together senior leaders, frontline staff and health policy experts to share best practices and new uses for continuous remote patient care. This year’s theme was Leading Through Change.
