Rubbermaid Medical Solutions (RMS), the premier provider of mobile and wall-mounted workstations, and New York University College of Nursing (NYUCN), a leader in nursing education, research and development, today announced a strategic partnership to develop and enhance innovative nursing and clinical technology solutions for the advancement of nursing education as a whole.

This new partnership will further both organizations' goals of enhancing nursing and clinical informatics and educating future leaders through combining resources for facilitating research and development. The alignment is a commitment from RMS and NYUCN that aims to ultimately improve the overall level of patient care and satisfaction throughout the field of healthcare.

“This new partnership with RMS is part of our overall strategy of being a leader in research, nursing informatics and the healthcare industry,” said Eileen Sullivan-Marx, Dean of the NYU College of Nursing. “Not only will we have access to the best products and solutions for preparing future nurses, we will also be able to enhance the role of technology in improving patient care.”

One of the first projects within the partnership will be to utilize the new, state-of-the-art simulation center at NYUCN to observe nursing behavior, and develop products that enhance nursing workflow and support clinical adoption of telemedicine. Other immediate endeavors include scholarship programs, telemedicine projects, and the availability of additional consulting, training and educational opportunities for both organizations.
