PITTSBURGH, OCTOBER 15, 2008 – Vocollect Healthcare Systems, Inc. and Vigil Health Solutions, a leading provider of healthcare products for the long-term care industry in North America, including nurse call systems, wireless call, bed monitoring, resident check in and the award-winning Vigil Dementia System, announce an agreement where Vigil will resell AccuNurse voice-assisted care as part of its long-term care solutions offerings to its customer base.


AccuNurse gives caregivers the option to access resident care needs on-demand, complete documentation of care simply by talking, enhance care-team collaboration with the Silent Page capability, and track improved clinical outcomes.


“Communities around the country are looking for solutions that take standards of care to higher levels, provide options to manage risk, and improve staff efficiency” said Troy Griffiths, president and CEO of Vigil Health Solutions. “Voice-assisted care is a natural complement to our portfolio of emergency and nurse call solutions, enabling clients to provide a full continuum of care through the use of unobtrusive systems. The industry is demanding more homelike environments and we believe no other portfolio of solutions delivers this like Vigil plus AccuNurse.”


“We’re excited about our agreement with Vigil Health Solutions,” said James Quasey, president of Vocollect Healthcare Systems. “With great sensing and call technology offered by Vigil, plus personalized service with voice-assisted care, caregivers will use technology to their advantage like never before. Communities now have the tools to stay on top of resident needs, in real time, knowing caregivers have the information they need – right in their ears. By complementing their adaptable solutions with AccuNurse, we believe Vigil now offers the most advanced solution in the delivery of care, as well as opening a potentially significant new channel for revenue growth.”
