Expanse for nurses

The best care. Humanly possible.

Your nurses and therapists are working harder than ever as staffing shortages — and patient acuity — increase.

Give them intuitive, web-based tools that offer clinical decision support and a personalized user experience, so they can spend more time with patients instead of technology.

Plus, mobile access to the enterprise-wide EHR means nurses and therapists can move without limitations, wherever they’re needed.

It’s time to get moving.

Better for everyone

When nurses and therapists practice with the smart devices they already know and love, it's a win-win for them and their patients.

Nurses and therapists can:

  • Grab a tablet to perform hand-offs, review patient education, and discuss discharge plans, right at the bedside.
  • Remain facing the patient when using this modern, mobile solution.
  • Navigate the personalized chart and document easily when they're with patients, not later on at the nurses' station.
  • Scan patient wristbands to access charts and administer medications without lugging disruptive technology to patients' rooms.

  • “We could see POC’s potential and the benefits of having a pocket-sized device staff can easily take into a patient's room without disruption. It would also untether our clinicians from their WOWs and enable them to spend more time engaging with patients at the bedside.”

  • “The fact that the solution meets the nurses’ needs was evident in the absence of night calls the week of our go-LIVE, which was phenomenal. We’re seeing more nursing engagement than we ever have before, even from those who don’t normally engage or have positive feedback.”
