(PRWEB) June 15, 2012
Today Ericka Baran, Vice President Marketing at Jeron Electronic Systems, Inc., announced the availability of the Executive Information System (EIS) package to log patient call activity and staff responses as an optional software tool for the company’s Provider 790 nurse call system. “It’s a versatile software package,” noted Baran, “that hospital managers and administrators can use to monitor staff responsiveness, take corrective action and proactively address performance issues that impact patient and staff satisfaction – even liability concerns.”
The Provider 790 EIS software follows a trend toward activity and performance reporting which is gaining traction in the acute care community. A recent article in Healthcare IT News places business intelligence as #7 in “The Top Ten Initiatives Your Hospital Should Undertake in 2012”. Quoting Fred Pennic, Senior Advisor with IT Consulting firm Aspen Advisors, “As hospitals deal with the increasing volume of data produced by technology, business intelligence can help increase revenue and reduce costs. Applying a business intelligence platform to a healthcare organization can also have positive impacts on quality and performance…”
ACCESSIBLE AND FLEXIBLE
From any computer on the facility’s LAN, administrators and managers can access the Jeron EIS software to generate reports that detail staff response to patient calls from across the facility, within a specific unit or down to an individual patient room. Users can also generate reports to spot trends in staff response times, track staff activity or monitor a sequence of interactions with an individual patient.
When used in combination with the wireless options (pocket paging, wireless phones, or real-time locating) on the Provider 790 nurse call system, the EIS software logs all staff to patient assignments allowing administrators to generate reports of staff to patient assignments from any date or time period. These reports can be used to fulfill Joint Commission requirements for documenting staff to patient assignments.
