“Thornberry & Cardiocom’s ability to develop a software interface that will help us easily achieve our goals adds great value to our agency, our telehealth program and ultimately our patients.”
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) April 21, 2010
Cardiocom, the Experts in Telehealth℠, announced that it has entered into a relationship with Thornberry Ltd to provide a two-way interface between Cardiocom’s Omnivisor Pro software and Thornberry’s clinical software, NDoc®. Cardiocom is a world class developer, manufacturer and clinical service provider of award-winning telehealth solutions and Thornberry is the creator of NDoc, a point of care and billing software for hospice and home health agencies.
Twin Tier Home Health of Vestal, NY is the first joint customer to actively implement this dynamic interface tool. Cardiocom’s telehealth system provides a unique opportunity to proactively manage and customize patient care. Every day, Twin Tier Home Health patients use the Cardiocom Commander Telehealth System to communicate with a Twin Tier telehealth nurse. The Commander Telemonitoring System guides the patient through an interactive Health Check and collection of vital signs including: weight, blood pressure, oxygen saturation and heart rate. This information is immediately available for review by Twin Tier Home Health.
The new, two-way software interface allows demographic data to flow from the NDoc system once a patient is enrolled in telehealth. In addition, all Twin Tier field staff will now have access to daily vital sign data, symptom information and clinical notes from the telehealth nurse directly in the patient record within NDoc. Access to this daily data is important since it allows Twin Tier field staff to make better decisions based on objective telehealth information, significantly improving the time it takes to make timely interventions, such as medication adjustments.
“The goals for Twin Tier’s telehealth program are to improve patient care, decrease hospitalizations, and increase agency efficiency,” stated Jill Cunningham, RN, BSN, Nurse Coordinator at Twin Tier Home Health. “Thornberry & Cardiocom’s ability to develop a software interface that will help us easily achieve these goals adds great value to our agency, our telehealth program and ultimately our patients.”
"One way that we continue to offer outstanding service to our customers is to join forces with award-winning companies like Cardiocom," said Tom Peth, President of Thornberry Ltd. “A core benefit of NDoc is its capability to achieve tight integration with external systems connecting customers with the full continuum of healthcare providers and services. By partnering with a true leader in the telehealth industry, our customers will benefit from Cardiocom’s ability to help agencies improve outcomes and increase clinical efficiencies through its superb telehealth solution.”
“Cardiocom is excited about providing a seamless telehealth data interface to Thornberry’s NDoc system,” said Daniel L. Cosentino, CEO and President of Cardiocom. “Real-time telehealth data enhances Twin Tier’s ability to intervene early and avoid unnecessary hospitalizations. Our collaboration with Thornberry, a leading provider of premier home care documentation software, is another example of how we help our clients improve clinical outcomes everyday."
