IntelliDOT™ Corp. Announces the CAREt™ Breast Milk Matching System (BMM) to Assure Safe and Accurate Feedings in Hospital Nurseries

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - June 25, 2007) - IntelliDOT™ Corporation, an innovator in patient safety and workflow management solutions for healthcare, today announced the CAREt™ Breast Milk Matching (BMM) System. The BMM Module electronically matches milk containers brought to the neonatal ICU by the mother and assures they are fed to the correct infant. The new product announcement was made at the AWHONN 2007 Convention; June 23 to 27 in Orlando FL. IntelliDOT will demonstrate the technology in booth #1235.

The CAREt BMM System allows the caregiver to label breast milk when the mother drops it off at the intensive care nursery and then matches it to the correct infant at feeding time using bar code scanning technology. The breast milk matching product is designed to compliment IntelliDOT's existing platform of patient safety solutions. The CAREt BMM Module utilizes the same wireless handheld device as other IntelliDOT modules and prints patient-specific feeding sheets.

"IntelliDOT is dedicated to providing our customers with point-of-care technology solutions that are easy to use, streamline the daily workload, and address specific problems that nurses experience -- such as the confusion that can occur with multiple mothers dropping off milk for their hospitalized infant," said Vicki McKendrick, RN, Director of Patient Safety for IntelliDOT. "The CAREt BMM System allows nurses to work efficiently at the bedside while assuring safe and accurate patient care."

The CAREt BMM Module further enhances IntelliDOT's platform of patient safety solutions, all designed to enhance the organization of workflow at the bedside. The CAREt Handheld guides the nurse through all required tasks, automatically queuing critical tasks, and displaying information for action in a straightforward manner. The CAREt System also eliminates a significant amount of time required for charting of patient records at the end of a shift, as the system captures information electronically during the course of the day.

About the CAREt System™

The CAREt System is the first nurse-centered workflow manager to connect caregivers with the information systems they need at the point-of-care. Designed to complement the way nurses work, the handheld CAREt System is simple to use and provides nurses with a single, wireless tool for medication safety and documentation at the bedside.

The integrated hardware and software solution provided by IntelliDOT results in a cost-effective "smart hardware" system for hospitals looking for a customized design for caregivers at the bedside. By simply scanning a patient wristband, nurses are prompted by the CAREt Handheld tool through all required medication administration and documentation tasks that have accumulated for a patient. Information is clear, organized, and delivered right into the caregiver's hand, right when it's needed.
