Case Study: Quality Oversight and Improved Care Made Easy with Instant Alerts
Vitals are vital for the Cognos clinical team. Determined to drive higher levels of quality into the vitals capture and documentation process, Cognos implemented the CareConnection medical device integration system in all three of their skilled nursing communities.
Cognos amassed a bevy of benefits including significantly improved oversight at the corporate clinical and quality assurance level. The instant alerts of threshold breaches from CareConnection provided a safety net to guarantee appropriate action was being taken to restore the resident's health. Nursing and Caregiver time savings and the documentation accuracy from the interface with Cognos' EHR, American HealthTech, provided an unexpected benefit--stronger relationships between the Nurses and Caregivers.
