The St. Louis VAMC, John Cochran Division has selected Enterprise VISion, a real-time location information system from Versus Technology, Inc. (Traverse City, Mich.)

The Versus RTLS will display the real-time location of patients and staff, automate and display staff-to-patient assignments, and reduce manual data entry through custom rules designed to "trigger" events, alerts and automatic data collection, says the company. Versus will provide real-time data on key performance indicators such as patient wait time, it adds. Versus says it will also provide the St. Louis VAMC with a custom reporting mechanism to allow the facility to collect historical data on patient visits, patient and staff interactions, and patient volume relative to other parameters such as time of day or staffing levels.

The St. Louis VAMC is a two-division, tertiary care facility with 218 approved hospital operating beds, a 71-bed Community Living Center (CLC), a 50-bed Rehabilitation Domiciliary for Homeless Veterans and a 25-bed Substance Abuse Residential Rehabilitation Treatment Program.
