Security Spets Launches DragonFly Security System™ for Homeowners

STAMFORD, CT, SEPTEMBER 27, 2016  Security Spets, LLC, a leading systems 
integrator and full-service solution provider of dynamic, high-performance, integrated life safety, 
electronic security, video surveillance and communications systems for commercial and 
residential clients, recently launched the DragonFly “create-your-own” security system for 
residential users. 
Combining a “smartphone app with an Ethernet-connected hub kit and a choice of internal 
and/or external MotionViewer® cameras, the DragonFly security system installs in minutes 
utilizing an existing home router. The hub can also be upgraded to accommodate Wi-Fi or 
cellular connections for more flexibility and service backup in the event of outages. 
Easy-to-follow setup instructions are provided through the DragonFly smartphone application.  
“Every family and homeowner should feel secure in their residence and have the ability to keep 
track of their loved ones and property, at a cost that won’t break the family budget,” said 
Kimberly Rescigno, Director of Sales and Marketing at Security Spets, LLC. “With the new 
DragonFly offering from our Alert Systems division, we are now able to provide cost-effective, 
high-quality, do-it-yourself video surveillance products with professional central station 
monitoring to all residential users, regardless of who they are or what their financial status is, as 
long as they have a smartphone and a home router.”  
Specifically designed to accommodate homes, dorm rooms, small offices and cabins, DragonFly 
Security System cameras mount inside or out and provide the user with the ability to set 
notification alerts, stream and view real-time video, or request snapshots of camera input. When 
a video alert shows a real threat, the user simply taps “dispatch” on their app to send the video 
to the professional monitoring station for dispatch to the police and first responders. Users opting 
for the Premium monitoring plan get videoverified alarms sent directly to the monitoring station 
for automatic action when they are unavailable. 
The DragonFly application also allows remote arming and disarming of the system, adjustment 
of camera detection sensitivity, adding users, and inviting followers to create a virtual 
neighborhood and help increase community awareness of outdoor events. Accessing and 
managing accounts can also be handled via a desktop application if the user does not have 
access to a smartphone. The DragonFly system has received endorsements from law 
enforcement and is designed to help support priority police response. The DragonFly Security 
System technology has been endorsed by the National Sheriffs’ Association.

Chartwise Medical Systems’ Innovative Chartwise 2.0 Software Shines in Klas 2015 CDI Solutions Report

WAKEFIELD, RI– ChartWise Medical Systems, Inc. (, the industry leader in Computer-Assisted Clinical Documentation Improvement (CACDI) software, is thrilled to announce that its ChartWise 2.0 solution received exceptional provider reviews in the recently published CDI industry report from KLAS entitled, “CDI Solutions 2015: Moving Closer to Documentation Completion.”


The pioneering CACDI software provider received a near-perfect score in the Overall Satisfaction- Software category with a rating of 94.6 out of 100. Furthermore, 93 percent of ChartWise customers reported being highly satisfied with the ChartWise 2.0 tool. Customers report that the automation provided by ChartWise has dramatically improved their documentation accuracy, case mix index (CMI), and clinical documentation spet (CDS) productivity. The report also states that ChartWise’s CMI tracking has made them more aware of their CMI than ever before. According to the report, clients like the automated reporting, the format of the query process, and that the system is intuitive.


One user praised ChartWise’s software, declaring, “I have had nothing but a positive experience with ChartWise. The tool we purchased is the best fit for us and is financially within reach of our mostly community-based hospital system.”


Additionally, an HIM director reported, “Our clinical documentation spets’ productivity has increased threefold since we implemented ChartWise CDI. We get through more charts now than we ever have, and we are able to look at additional diagnoses.”


The software’s intuitive design was cited as a differentiator along with the product’s strong querying capabilities. One director of medical records said, “ChartWise CDI is very intuitive. It gives us suggestions of things to query; the system’s logic has allowed us to do things like make our severity-of-illness data more accurate. The system gives us prompts and suggestions.”


ChartWise clients also lauded the ability of the ChartWise 2.0 software to increase CMI awareness and CDS productivity. When measuring the value of the software for CDS productivity and CMI, users reported a highly positive impact, with an 8.1 and 7.9 rating out of a possible 9.0, respectively. Solid query templates, easy-to-use tools and a seamless data flow contributed to the company’s positive reviews.


“The KLAS report is considered an especially important industry indicator for the ChartWise team because of the level of input they secure from the end-users—the people who can truly validate the quality of our product,” said Dr. Jon Elion, founder and CEO of ChartWise Medical Systems. “We pride ourselves on offering an innovative product that truly supports the user with quality reporting and user-friendly functionality. The fact that ChartWise has cultivated such a strong reputation within the industry for not only the quality of our product but also the level of our service is something that we take to heart and use as fuel to continue to be a pioneer in our field.”
