(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.
HIGHLIGHTS OF THE EIS SOFTWARE
- User Sign-On Control – Each user’s sign-on determines what types of reports can be generated and for what areas (the entire facility, several units, or just one unit.)
- Unlimited Concurrent Users – There are no limits on the number of concurrent users accessing the reporting software.
- SQL Database – The database logging of all system activity can be stored on the same PC/Server as the report generating software or on a separate server. The ability to store the activity database on a separate server allows the facility to back up the data based on its backup plan.
- PDF Output – Reports are generated in a standard PDF file format output which keeps the reports secure from unintentional modification. The reports can be readily shared via email, archived, or printed.
- Graphical Reports – Data is presented in both table and graphical formats, making it easier to spot trends and issues.
- Report Options – Each user can set call response goals for each call priority, flagging those calls that are not answered or cleared in person within a set time period. Depending on the type of report, each report can be generated across the entire facility, several units, a single unit, or down to a single room. The report can also include all call priorities, several call priorities or a single call priority. Reports can be generated for a single day, across multiple days, and/or specific hours within the day or all hours in the day.
- Customized Reports – Report parameters can be saved as ‘Public’ or ‘Private’ for future report generation; no need to reenter the attributes. Public Reports are available to all users while Private Reports are only available to the user who created the report.
- Built-In Reports – Depending on the level of access, users can generate up to seven different types of reports with the ability to customize the attributes (call priorities, response times, day/time) of each one.
- No Local Software to Install –Browser access to the EIS reporting means that the software is maintained on a Jeron server. There are no software components to load, maintain or upgrade on each user’s computer.
