Cheryl Gnehm to Address Impact of Hospital Systems Integration on Patient Satisfaction and Operating Efficiencies

BETHESDA, MD--(Marketwire - Oct 15, 2012) - GetWellNetwork, Inc.®, provider of the industry's leading Interactive Patient Care system, today announced that Cheryl Gnehm, vice president, Professional Services, GetWellNetwork, Inc., will speak at the 33rd Annual User Group Conference of The CBORD Group, Inc. Gnehm will lead a session titled "Make the Connection with Room Service," where the discussion will explore how hospitals can improve patient satisfaction and achieve efficiencies by integrating meal ordering with in-room patient TVs.

As a result of a partnership announced earlier this year, GetWellNetwork and CBORD have successfully integrated their Interactive Patient Care and Room Service solutions to enable personalized meal services for patients. The GetWellNetwork interface with CBORD offers the ability to display patient-specific menu options based on dietary orders as well as place a request for delivery. This unique integration offers a faster, easier way for patients to place orders and participate in their care -- all while improving operating efficiencies for hospitals.
