Irish hospital software group Oneview Healthcare has successfuly completed a proof of concept exercise at a major US facility.

During the three-month exercise at a 13-bed surgery ward in Overland Park Regional Medical Center in the state of Kansas, the Irish company demonstrated how its software allowed the hospital to integrate various systems already operating in the hospital so that they could be called up on the same screen.

This included electronic medical record, admission, discharge and transfer orders and documentation, real time location, nurse call and education and entertainment content.

The Australian-listed company also showcased its “nurse rounding” application which is designed to improve patient satisfaction.

Overland Park is a 343-bed facility.
