Medworxx Solutions Inc. ("Medworxx") (TSX VENTURE: MWX) today announced South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust as its newest UK client, having licensed the Medworxx Patient Flow solution. They join The Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust who were the first to adopt the Medworxx solution in the UK, and have been recognized with the 2012 EHI award in the category of Outstanding Work in IT-enabled Change in Healthcare.
Medworxx is working with the specialist, acute, and community teams at South Tees. With over 1000 licensed beds, Medworxx’ Patient Flow solution will cover 100% of the Trust. The software will be implemented in South Tees’ Acute-Care, Virtual Hospital, Rehabilitation and Continuing Care facilities.
“We are encouraged by our growth in the UK which further validates the relevance and strength of our patient flow solution,” says Dan Matlow, President and CEO, Medworxx. “We’ve seen tremendous results with The Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust, and welcome South Tees to our client community, as we work together to standardise admit and discharge decision making for appropriateness of inpatients.” Medworxx Patient Flow helps to reduce Lengths of Stay by identifying barriers and delays to discharge thus enabling appropriate care transitions.
“South Tees recognizes the importance of the Medworxx solution as a concurrent embedded tool that is based upon internationally validated clinical criteria,” says Peter Ellis, UK Managing Director, Medworxx. “The rapid assessment process, ease of use and in-year ROI has led to sustained adoption of the solution as an ‘every patient every day’ patient flow management tool and will contributed to its success in the UK.”
ModelAdvice DC Consulting Ltd UK, a Medworxx UK partner, initially used the Medworxx solution to perform a bed census audit for the Trust. This diagnostic review helped to identify patient flow challenges and barriers and provided a snapshot that demonstrated the potential benefits and ROI and led to South Tees’ decision to implement the Medworxx solution on a concurrent basis.
“We are eager to demonstrate how the benefits to our patients and the use of our resources, indicated in the diagnostic review, can be sustained and built upon through embedding the Medworxx tool as part of our current case management project,” states Sue Watson, Director of Operations at South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
Medworxx Patient Flow, including Medworxx Utilisation Management, Medworxx Bed Board, and Medworxx Assessments provides hospitals with tools to bridge clinical and operational perspectives on daily patient flow – optimal for healthcare systems addressing issues of overcapacity, wait times and care coordination. Spurred onwards by uptake of the patient flow solution in 27,600 acute care beds in Canada and UK’s National Health System (NHS), and a recent launch into the United States, Medworxx is expanding to leverage growth that includes agreements with four of Canada’s 10 Provinces and also includes 2,000 NHS beds in the UK.

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
