Measurement Based Care Tools
Measurement based care tools are a vital part of any health-care facility, as they are used to assess and monitor a patient’s progress or overall health. The tools include equipment like blood glucose monitors, blood pressure monitors and pulse oximeters. They help to identify and track health status for patients with illnesses or conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), congestive heart failure, asthma or bronchitis.
The Patient Care tools enable nurses to streamline care by providing a complete record of patient information, including a patient’s history and previous records or documents. They also enable nurses to create care plans based on a patient’s needs and interdisciplinary care team input. They can also capture chargeable time, which enables healthcare organizations to maximize reimbursements from CMS and other payers.
The advanced business intelligence tools enable hospitals to track every chargeable time category – whether it be with a patient, working on administrative tasks or on standby – giving the hospital a complete view of how long nurses spend with each patient, and how much they’re spending on ancillary services, such as transportation and supplies. The solution provides detailed reporting that allows administrators to evaluate performance and prioritize resources accordingly. It also offers business intelligence that enables hospitals to measure how their staff are spending their time and make informed decisions about future training, recruitment or compensation.
