Customer stories

"It was a reactive model. Now it's become proactive. I can see every piece of data within two minutes as it goes from the tablet to the cloud, and even if there are no alerts, we look through the reports every day. We can catch things before parents do, because we're the ones who are medically trained, and that's the way it should be, to reduce the burden on the parents."

Lori Erickson, nurse practitioner and CHAMP program clinical coordinator, Children's Mercy Hospital
