Our Mission: Improving Patient Safety with NOVA
NOVA is a whole new look for patient safety in hospitals across the country.
NOVA (Nursing Observation and Virtual Assistant) enhances a hospital’s workflow with fast and efficient communication on statuses of patients for emergency situations. Improve patient safety, increase patient satisfaction, and reduce overall costs with our healthcare solution: NOVA.
Our mission is simple: to increase bedside safety, improve patient satisfaction, reduce overall costs for hospitals, and still allow nurses to provide exceptional care for patients. With NOVA, Wachter has taken our IoT expertise to the healthcare field.
One of the major patient safety concerns of nurses is in-patient falls. With virtual patient observation technology NOVA, patient safety improves.

How NOVA Improves Patient Safety
As shown in the explainer video above, NOVA has several patient safety applications. When NOVA is placed in a patient room, an observation technician monitors up to 12 patients remotely from a secure location in your hospital. When a patient needs immediate assistance, the observation technician alerts nurses to help in that patient room and can communicate to the patient that help is on the way.
There are many options for NOVA to be integrated within a healthcare facility: including mobile wireless observation carts, moveable wall mounts, and even Joint Commission compliant fixed solutions in patient rooms. NOVA is built with seamless EMR integration to keep patient data secured.
Wachter Healthcare Solutions believes NOVA can be the solution to many healthcare challenges.
