Sphere3® Receives Patent for LeadIt!™ Software Module

Kansas City, MO (July 5th, 2017) – Sphere3® has received official notification that the United States Patent & Trademark Office will issue U.S. Patent, entitled Systems and Modules for Improving Patient Satisfaction, on July 16th, 2017. The patent covers the analysis and visualization of the patient and care team behaviors by correlating feedback from a nurse call light system, patient smart beds, and real time location systems with the patient’s perception of their care. The patent covers the LeadIt!™ module and associated algorithms for the Aperum® platform.

“Our vision is to change the way patients receive care by empowering caregivers with valuable information from technologies that are not commonly analyzed in real time,” says Kourtney Govro, CEO of Sphere3®. “The reality of managing both perception and behavior is critical to the advancement of the patient experience.”

This is the first patent in the intellectual property portfolio being created by Sphere3®. Sphere3® has filed both U.S. and foreign patent applications on several of its software products, including the Aperum® platform and the Staffit!™ and Roundit!™ Modules.

Sphere3®, a Gartner “Cool Vendor in Healthcare Providers” in 2015, offers Aperum®, patented patient experience management platform that integrates both the patient’s perception at the point of care and their behaviors in a mobilized analytics platform. Aperum®, which means to reveal, translates patient generated data from nurse call light, patient beds, cardiac monitoring, and sensor/ location technologies into information to empower hospitals to better manage care in real time. It provides insights into caregiver workload management, patient satisfaction, and patient safety indicators.
