TAMPA, Fla. - March 22, 2004 - PatienTree, a provider of technology solutions in the new age of Digital Hospitals, announced today that it has formed an OEM partnership with Mi-Co to enhance the PatienTree product offering for CPOE and Healthcare forms/document management.
Blending Mi-Co's software into PatienTree's portfolio of Healthcare Information Systems and Patient Entertainment Services allows PatienTree to become a front runner in the Healthcare migration towards the new Digital Hospital environment. PatienTree's mobile forms enables doctors, nurses, administrators and even patients to fill out, sign and date required healthcare forms directly on the PatienTree terminal or pen-on-paper. From the terminal or pen-on-paper critical data is captured electronically and communicated in real time. Information captured within PatienTree will now be available for real time systems updates or enterprise distribution without the need to send the form to a document management system for scanning and OCR. This capability will save customers time and money as well as increase the quality of their healthcare data.
"Our mission at PatienTree is to transform the patient and caregiver experience. Our product line, from our bedside touch screen TV and Terminal to now our implementation of the MI-Co forms processing suite is yet another step in that transformation" stated Bob Letzeisen President and Founder of PatienTree.
"At PatienTree we choose our partners with the same level of due diligence that our customers choose us," continued Letzeisen, "and we are extremely proud to be associated with a firm like Mi-CO. The products and the people at Mi-Co deliver quality. By using PatienTree's mobile forms solutions, our customers move beyond desk tops, bedside terminals, and PDA devices. It is as simple as using a Pen and Paper to capture required healthcare data. PatienTree's mobile forms and terminal network applies technology know-how to the healthcare worker without disrupting current processes. We make life less complicated for mobile medical professionals who are constantly moving from room to room, process to process, and continually recording and reporting data. At PatienTree, we deliver "The Power to Care from Anywhere" and the partnership with Mi-Co further enhances that value proposition to our customers.
