Mission Statement

Our mission is to deliver the highest quality technology services for healthcare providers in order to increase patient safety and improve quality of care through innovation and partnership.
 

XECAN utilizes smart IDs and its wedge integration technology to increase patient safety, and improve efficiency by:

  • Coordinating care via the tracking of the patient, specimens, medications, and treatment procedures throughout the entire course of treatment reducing misidentification and errors. XECAN's wedge software agent interacts with the existing EMR system to ensure all preparations are in place and will disable the treatment procedure plan if there are any misidentifications.
  • Improving clinic workflow through automated clinic whiteboards.
