xpedx®, a business-to-business distribution company in North America, continues to increase its service to healthcare facilities with ICNet NGthe next generation of infection control, surveillance and reporting software.
ICNet is a predictive program that helps identify potential healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) and reduces clerical reporting time, allowing for increased and improved clinical service. Used in more than 1,000 hospitals globally, ICNet conforms to the full complement of patient safety surveillance metrics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and is certified for Meaningful Use by the U.S. Government Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) to ensure maximum reimbursements from Medicare.
xpedx Healthcare Facility Advisors will be introducing ICNet as a tool that hospitals can use to better understand why HAIs occur in their buildings and break the chain of infection, says Michael Parks, director of marketing for facility solutions at xpedx. The goal is to assist with hospital infection control and improve patient safety.
xpedx was a strategic choice for us because it has quality teams with tremendous reach to the facilities that will benefit the most from this system, says Adam Boris, CEO of ICNet Systems, Inc. This software greatly reduces the time spent reporting to the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN), providing a key element of value and tremendous return on investment to healthcare facilities.
ICNet is available for use in healthcare facilities of all sizes, ranging from a single community hospital to national networks of hospitals. Additionally, it can integrate disparate electronic medical records systems and serve as a first look at all patients across a network.
