Sam Nimah

Nimah (BSAc 1991) is CEO of Special Care Providers, a company that specializes in the management of acute hospital-based Special Care Units (SCU). His company was recently awarded the South Florida HIMSS Innovation Award for implementing Centric Consulting’s BlueBeak technology, which has significantly enhanced the level of care patients receive within their Special Care Unit. The award recognizes providers for healthcare technology innovation in South Florida, taking into consideration the direct correlation between an organization’s IT initiative and accomplishment or a documented organizational objective.

The innovative technology offers real-time monitoring and visualization of patient care and creates the statistical foundation for future improvements. Each SCU staff member is issued a specialized badge and each patient bed is equipped with a beacon reader. BlueBeak uses Bluetooth to communicate between the badge and beacon reader, providing instant feedback on patients in need of service. The data collected is imported into an intuitive, custom dashboard that provides feedback and statistical data for future care initiatives.
