With Amplion, we feel great about our ability to make every patient feel confident their needs are being met and that they are safe in our hospital.
Nashville, Tennessee (PRWEB) March 01, 2016
Amplion Clinical Communications today announced that Morgan Memorial Hospital in Madison, Georgia, has tapped the company to install Amplion Alert, its revolutionary care assurance platform.
This technology integrates patient care communications for an unprecedented approach to nurse call, advanced messaging and reminders, and alarm management. Specifically, it will help Morgan Memorial support a culture of accountability within its hospital, while enhancing overall patient safety through additional checks and balances that reduce patient falls, improve clinician rounding and assure timely responses to patient needs.
“We were struggling with an antiquated system that didn’t allow for us to effectively and efficiently communicate or to objectively evaluate how well we were responding to patient requests,” said Susan Jackson, Inpatient Nurse Manager for Morgan Memorial. “With Amplion Alert, we can get requests quickly to the most appropriate caregiver, see what’s really happening minute to minute, measure our performance and feel great about our ability to make every patient feel confident their needs are being met and that they are safe in our hospital.”
Benefits of the Amplion Alert system include streamlining care delivery, improving workflow and workload management of nursing staff and creating opportunities to leverage care data for improving the hospital’s performance. Most important for Morgan Memorial is the promise it holds for enhancing the patient experience.
“I’m most excited about Amplion’s ability to help us improve the patient experience within our hospital,” said Beth O’Neill, Chief Nursing Officer for Morgan Memorial. “This platform will greatly improve our ability to meet our HCAHPS objectives.”
The decision to install Amplion Alert fits into a larger focus for the hospital. Morgan Memorial leaders report they have recently made significant investments in technology to ensure their facility is ready for the future. They note that Amplion, and the problems it solves, is a critical piece of the puzzle.
“We’re thrilled that the Morgan Memorial staff is trusting Amplion and our care confirmation capabilities as they push toward a better future,” said David Condra, CEO for Amplion. “This hospital has a vision for what the patient experience can truly be, and we are committed to helping them achieve it.”
