ARC Devices and Orchestrate Healthcare Launch ARC VitalConnect™, a Game-Changing Bridging System for Non-Touch Thermometers and EMR
The ARC VitalConnect™ System Improves Overall Outcomes for Both Patients and Providers, Offering Time and Cost Savings While Facilitating Better Patient Health and Satisfaction
April 7, 2015 – BOCA RATON, FL and CARBONDALE, CO – ARC Devices Inc., an innovator in non-touch vital sign measurement devices, and Orchestrate Healthcare, a multi-year Best In KLAS award-winning leader in integration and interface consulting, announces today that they have partnered to launch ARC VitalConnect™. This industry-changing bridging system captures data from an ARC non-touch, clinical thermometer and transmits it directly to an EMR environment.
ARC VitalConnect™ can pair either the ARC MedTemp2™ or ARC MedTemp3™ with major EMR solutions. Pilots are currently scheduled to begin during the fourth quarter of 2015. By allowing physicians, nurses, and healthcare personnel to take point-and-click temperature readings with a high level of accuracy and update the EMR instantly and automatically, ARC VitalConnect™ eliminates human error that can result from manual updates, and reduces staff time.
“Our focus has always been to efficiently enable healthcare to make the most out of innovative technology solutions,” explains Charlie Cook, President of Orchestrate Healthcare. “Partnering ARC Devices’ cutting-edge thermometers with our technical expertise to implement top-tier integration systems is right in-line with that goal. The ARC VitalConnect™ system will completely revolutionize how patient temperature is taken and recorded. We’re excited to help lead this next step in patient care by developing this valuable solution with ARC Devices.”
The ARC MedTemp2™ and ARC MedTemp3™ are the first Wi-Fi enabled thermometers allowing for EMR connectivity. They use System on Chip (S.O.C) digital sensor technology, which eliminates analog measurement drift, and an advanced, clinically-developed, proprietary algorithm for measuring core body temperature. They have an infrared accuracy sensor of +/- 0.4°F (0.2°C). The ARC MedTemp3™ also includes a 2D optical barcode reader. Both are non-touch, minimizing the risk of cross contamination, are RFID traceable for asset management, and reduce costs by requiring no expensive probe covers or consumables.
“Our ARC MedTemp™ suite of thermometers are designed to be the next evolution in the way medical professionals take and record temperature readings,” said Irwin Gross, CEO of ARC Devices. “Orchestrate Healthcare’s deep integration expertise makes them the ideal partner in this endeavor.”
Come see the ARC VitalConnect™ system demonstrated at HIMSS15 at Orchestrate Healthcare’s booth #4448 and learn more about how your organization can benefit from this advanced technology.
