The largest privately-held independent oncology/hematology practice in the United States selects VIZZIA’s advanced workflow optimization solution to streamline clinical processes and enhance their outpatient experience.
(Alpharetta, GA – July 1, 2013) – VIZZIA Technologies, a leading provider of process and technology solutions, announced today that its clinical workflow optimization solution was recently installed at Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute’s (FCS) Tampa Cancer Center location. The newly constructed 35,990 square foot flagship facility offers a “one-stop” approach to patient care that includes medical oncology, advanced radiation oncology technology and radiological services for identifying and diagnosing tumors. The VIZZIA solution, which leverages CenTrak’s Clinical-Grade RTLS™, is designed to transform the outpatient experience and help in optimizing patient flow processes. Shortening patient wait times, ensuring patient safety and satisfaction, as well as increasing the cancer center’s patient treatment capacity are among the benefits of the new solution.
“Cancer treatment can be a daunting challenge for many of our patients. We are proud to have installed the latest technologies to enhance our patients’ experiences at our center. VIZZIA’s advanced workflow solution allows us the visibility and data we need to accelerate the overall treatment process, so our patients can more quickly return to their normal routines,” said Todd Schonherz, Florida Cancer Specialists’ chief operating officer.
VIZZIA integrated its web-based information portal with the CenTrak Clinical-Grade Locating™ infrastructure. Their VIZZION Suite™ software automatically updates the location of patients and staff from CenTrak’s RTLS and incorporates important workflow rules and alerts to ensure that patients move through the treatment process as efficiently as possible. The Clinical-Grade RTLS platform uses battery-operated Gen2IR™ and Virtual Wall™ devices to deliver unmatched room-, bed-, and bay-level accuracy. The advanced technology delivers rapid location update speeds and offers small, full featured tags with extremely long battery life.
