JERICHO, N.Y. -- Optimum Lightpath, a market leader in Ethernet-based communication solutions for New York metropolitan area businesses, today introduced Interactive Patient Care (IPC), a technology solution available exclusively through Optimum Lightpath to New York metropolitan area hospitals. The company has signed an exclusive agreement with Interactive Patient Care expert, GetWellNetwork, to package this unique technology with its advanced business communications solutions, which run over the area's largest all-fiber metro Ethernet network.

Using GetWellNetwork's technology, powered by Optimum Lightpath's 100% fiber optic network, hospital in-room televisions can transform into a valuable, interactive experience for users. Patients can learn more about their condition, connect with family and interact with caregivers using the bedside TV. The Interactive Patient Care solution ultimately improves patient knowledge and safety, clinical care outcomes, staff responsiveness, bed turnover rates and workflow efficiencies for hospital staff.

"Nearly 70 percent of New York metropolitan area hospitals and nearly 100 percent of Long Island NY's hospitals in our service area choose Optimum Lightpath to power their business communications solutions," said Dave Pistacchio, GM and EVP of Optimum Lightpath.
