Fort Wayne, Ind.-based Extension Inc. and Redwood City-based AeroScout have teamed-up to develop integrated solutions. The idea behind the project, the companies say, is to help improve clinical and operational workflow by delivering enhanced patient and asset tracking notifications to Cisco Systems Inc. (San Jose, Calif.) VoIP devices.

AeroScout’s core healthcare offerings provide real-time location, status and condition information about assets, patients and staff. Extension Inc., provides an appliance-based software application that aggregates HL7 and Web-services data from all HIS and EMR systems, delivers relevant information to mobile devices such as Cisco IP Phones and cell phones, and also allows recipients to send automated responses via their device, the companies say. The two claim that together they can provide a more enriched, clinically-relevant tracking and alerting solution integrated with the Cisco Unified Communications platform so that healthcare organizations can improve clinical and operational workflows.
