South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust Adopts Medworxx’ Patient Flow Solution

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.
