Supporting Patient Care, Staffing Efforts with New NOVA Partnership

Wachter Healthcare Solutions, Cross Country Healthcare Team Up to Support Patient Care Efforts Using VPO Technology

Mount Laurel, NJ — Wachter Healthcare Solutions, a leader in virtual patient observation technology, is partnering with Cross Country Healthcare to place observation technicians and leading-edge remote patient monitoring solution NOVA in hospitals.

NOVA (Nursing Observation and Virtual Assistant) is developed by Wachter Healthcare Solutions to provide for constant monitoring of patients in hospitals across the nation. Wachter Healthcare Solutions chose to team up with Cross Country Healthcare to supply hospitals with observation technicians that will monitor patients via a NOVA remote patient monitoring device placed in a patient's room.

When NOVA is installed in patient rooms, an observation technician has a virtual window into a patient's condition and real-time status. When a patient needs immediate assistance, the observation technician alerts nearby nursing staff to quickly intervene. NOVA is used by hospitals for preventing patient falls, as an alternative to a hospital sitter program, and even caring for COVID-19 patients.

Healthcare administrators can rest assured knowing their patients are reliably cared for in this combination a leader in healthcare staffing with the most powerful patient monitoring and patient safety solution.

“With Wachter Healthcare Solutions and CCH joining forces, the resulting benefits for improving staffing issues and patient care are unstoppable. We can now provide a comprehensive solution to healthcare facilities that even further simplifies implementation,” Ashley Kuruvilla, MSN, APRN, FNP-C, NOVA Business Development Manager and Clinical Support Specialist said.
