Stations keep families and friends connected; enhance patient experience and satisfaction scores

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – May 7, 2013; Andover, MA

Yankee Alliance has announced a new contract with goCharge (www.gochargenow.com), the nation’s leading provider of mobile device charging stations. goCharge offers Yankee Alliance members the ability to keep friends and families of patients, hospital and medical center staff always connected. The goCharge stations, primarily designed for waiting and emergency rooms, ensure productive and comfortable waiting time without concern for mobile device battery life.

goCharge stations have demonstrated improved patient experience and, prospectively,  Press Ganey scores. goCharge supplies mobile device charging stations that significantly enhance the waiting time experience and satisfaction for  patients and their friends and families. The charging stations eliminate the fear of losing battery life on mobile devices, thereby allowing hospital and medical center visitors to stay productively and comfortably connected.  goCharge’s diversity of charging stations suits any waiting and emergency room environment,  as well as nursing stations, cafeterias, and staff lounges. The stations, free of charge and easy to use, promise to enhance the patient experience, which in turn improves patient outcomes, reduces costs, and enhances the overall regard of the hospital or medical center.  As a result, the patient experience is enhanced, which can be reflected in Press Ganey scores and patient satisfaction survey results.

In establishing this contract, which includes all of the goCharge models and is provided at a substantial discount to standard pricing, goCharge can now offer its stations to a wide array of healthcare organizations across the country that Yankee Alliance counts among its member pool.

“We are pleased to have formed this strategic relationship with Yankee Alliance and look forward to delivering a new solution to its healthcare organization members that enhance the patient experience,” said David Walke, CEO of goCharge.   “Our team is excited to engage with Yankee Alliance members to help them identify new ways to leverage mobile devices to the benefit of their patients while maintaining full compliance with HIPAA and HITECH guidelines.”
