Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) June 05, 2017
BrightStar Care North Hills/Pittsburgh, a home care agency that also provides medical staffing solutions, recently earned the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Home Care Accreditation by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The Gold Seal of Approval® is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to providing safe and effective care.
“Our experience working with the Joint Commission has been invaluable. Joint Commission surveyors are experts in the healthcare industry providing valuable input into best-in-class organizational procedures,” said Dave Drauch, owner of BrightStar Care of North Hills/Pittsburgh and a Certified Senior Advisor. “Meeting the Joint Commission standards helped give structure to our organization from leadership and patient safety to infection control, performance improvement and emergency management.”
BrightStar Care of North Hills/Pittsburgh, which has an A+ rating with the BBB, also recently received the 2017 Best of Home Care Provider of Choice from Home Care Pulse. As a recipient of this prestigious award, BrightStar Care of North Hills/Pittsburgh has proven it delivers a high level of quality, professionalism and expertise in home care.
To better ensure top-quality client care, BrightStar Care of North Hills/Pittsburgh has adopted a mobile application from Rappora that enables caregivers to properly document care in the home as it happens. “With this technology, nurses back in the office can monitor all activities and receive alerts if anything is out of the ordinary,” said Dan Ogren, co-founder of Rappora. “Our technology also gives homecare providers access to crucial information so they can prevent problems before they happen.”
The mobile application was designed to be light and easy to use so caregivers can spend more time focusing on the client and less time looking at their phone. “We believe caregivers are often forgotten when it comes to homecare technology,” added Ogren. “Our goal at Rappora is to empower caregivers with the tools they need to keep people healthy, happy and at home.”
