LG CNS Point of Care Solution 2.0 Consolidates Five Solutions Into One for Maximum Efficiency [Global Data Point]
(Global Data Point Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) In post-acute healthcare, patient and resident daily care is accomplished by using up to five separate solutions that are cumbersome to manage. The costs associated with multiple solutions can add up quickly -- separate software licenses, training, security safeguards, hardware devices, etc. Juggling these separate solutions can also result in a drain on productivity for direct care workers.
The LG CNS POCS 2.0 combines the power of five solutions into one smart mobile device that can provide the following: documentation of daily care and activities of daily living (ADLs), advisements of routine and specialty care needs; vital sign collection; voice communication; secure text messaging; nurse or emergency call; and other essentials like helping caregivers make sure patients get to appointments on time. Caregivers only need to learn one intuitive system, presented in an innovative, user-friendly app, on one mobile device.
According to executives at StoneGate Senior Living, who have implemented the POCS 2.0 in all of their communities, the solution is yielding significant dividends. John Paul Taylor, COO, commented, "We have definitely seen an improvement in our ADL scores because the documentation is more accurate, versus the other electronic systems we've used. What we capture is in real time." Penny Marshall, Director of Clinical Information Technology, attributes the results to workflow. "We're able to gather more data because we've made it easier for them than ever - by putting a personal, powerful tool right in their pocket." And Dianne Sullivan, Vice President of Clinical Support and Quality, notes that "communication is not siloed anymore. Everyone knows what's going on with patients - it has been wonderful."
The POCS 2.0 is an integral part of the LG CNS Post-Acute Care EHR solution which leverages modern, cognitive workflows and provides one patient/resident record across the post-acute care continuum. At the LTC LINK conference last week, at which the POCS 2.0 was an Innovation Award finalist, Robert Baker, President of Collain Healthcare, summarized, "The POCS 2.0 is a next-generation ADL documentation solution utilizing the capabilities of internal messaging, telephone communication services using voice over internet protocols (VoIP), push-to-talk technologies and also touch screen clinical documentation. It's a real game changer."
