Extenway wins deal for patient terminals
MONTREAL – Extenway Solutions Inc. is pleased to announce that the Centre de santé et de services sociaux du Lac-des-Deux-Montagnes has selected its bedside terminals and multimedia solution following a Call for Proposals. About 280 of the region’s beds will be equipped with the patient bedside terminals, including the entertainment service, and screens offering the multimedia solution will be installed in waiting rooms.
“There is tremendous enthusiasm for our terminals, which let health centres optimize their communications and services, and allow patients to feel less isolated,” said John McAllister, President and CEO of Extenway. “We are extremely proud to count the CSSS du Lac-des-Deux-Montagnes as a future client of our company.”
The Extenway terminals offer patients access to entertainment on demand (digital TV, music, radio, Internet, social networks, video games, chat and films on demand), plus educational content about their health and the hospital.
Extenway and the CSSS du Lac-des-Deux-Montagnes are to conclude the agreement in the next few weeks to determine a timeline for installing the solution. This agreement is conditional to the completion of the financing required based on the agreement concluded with a financial institution and announced on March 22, 2010, to make available, subject to certain conditions, term loan facilities in the maximum amount of $25 million.
With this agreement, more than 400 beds will be equipped with Extenway’s interactive terminals in Quebec, as the technology is already in use at the Jewish Rehabilitation Hospital of Laval.
