ISS Solutions Contracts with the County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania and Pelican Insurance Group to Provide Clinical Equipment Management Seminars
Langhorne, PA, April 5, 2006— ISS Solutions, a leading provider of specialized clinical engineering and information technology lifecycle management services, announced today that they have contracted with the County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania (CCAP) and Pelican Insurance Group to provide a series of clinical equipment management seminars.
These six-hour seminars will be given to nursing home administrators and maintenance directors to convey best practices associated with clinical equipment maintenance and management. The seminar series will take place in five Pennsylvania locations throughout April and May: State College, Stroudsburg, Cranberry Township, Valley Forge, and Harrisburg.
After a routine safety committee meeting prior to a state inspection at one of CCAP’s Philadelphia nursing home facilities, they recognized ISS Solutions’ input related to accomplishing a successful inspection. It was decided to roll out this series of seminars to ensure all CCAP nursing homes could benefit from ISS Solutions’ experience with equipment care procedures and regulatory compliance.
Peter Brooks, CEO of ISS Solutions, said “The CCAP nursing homes take resident care just as seriously as acute care hospitals. I think the CCAP and Pelican Insurance Group are being very proactive with this initiative and I am confident it will help them improve an already stellar track record of resident care in their nursing homes.”

In addition to clinical engineering consulting, ISS Solutions offers network infrastructure design and support, network security systems, help desk services, technology acquisition, asset management services, and other clinical equipment management solutions.
