NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--After two years and a presence in more than 100 hospitals, DisastersNet has changed its name to ReadyPoint Systems and expanded its technology offerings, company officials announced today.
The name change and services expansion reflects the changing dynamics in the healthcare industry and the company’s desire to help hospitals meet the increasing demands for quality, safety, accountability and transparency. As ReadyPoint, the information technology company is focused on helping hospitals improve the processes that increase quality and safety of care.
“Right now there is a tremendous opportunity to help hospitals meet the challenges of today’s healthcare environment. So our company has evolved to help hospitals be ready,” says Chris Riddle, president of ReadyPoint. “We’ve introduced a new service called EyeOn in addition to our incident management system. The name ReadyPoint better reflects who we are now and will stay relevant as we continue to expand our offerings.”
ReadyPoint is anchored by two core technologies that are based on more than 25 years of real-world hospital experience: StandTo and EyeOn. StandTo, formerly called Disaster Incident Management System (DIMS), is the company’s proven incident management technology. StandTo fully automates a hospital’s incident management process, allowing real-time response to unplanned events. This system also automates emergency training exercises which makes the drills easier to conduct and more meaningful because hospitals can track their improvement over time.
“StandTo is a military term that originated during World War I as a signal for everyone to be in position and alert,” says Riddle. “We think it is an appropriate name for our incident management system because our technology doesn’t just manage disasters, it prepares the command team to be ready for any unplanned event.”
EyeOn is ReadyPoint’s newest technology. Built on the same platform as StandTo, the system helps hospitals manage quality and patient safety – from hand washing compliance to patient tracers – on a consistent basis.
“Though we’ve changed our name and expanded our services, our mission stays the same,” says Riddle. “We’re committed to providing hospitals with the most effective technologies to meet the demands of the healthcare environment – today and into the future.”
