Hartford, Wis.-based api software Inc. (API), a provider of labor resource management software, has acquired ENEPCS (Expert Nurse Estimation Patient Classification System), an automated system that measures clinical workload and provides the number of hours and skill mix required to meet patient needs.

ENEPCS provides data for identifying patient care needs, staffing hours and skill mix, justifying reallocation of staff and estimating the cost of nursing care, according to the company. The system can provide the data required to meet state and federal legislative requirements, including California’s mandated patient-to-staff ratios, the organization adds.
