Integration Improves Acute and Post-Acute Care Capabilities for TeleHealth Solution Patients in Skilled Nursing Facilities
OAKLAND, Calif., October 23, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Dictum Health Inc. – innovators in telehealth's Virtual Exam Room (VER) technology that brings the entire medical team to the point of care – integrated with PointClickCare, the market leader in cloud solutions for the long-term and post-acute care (LTPAC) and senior living market. The integration with PointClickCare’s electronic health record (EHR) platform enables physicians remotely assessing acute and post-acute patients to access patient data from anywhere, in real time, using their PointClickCare login credentials.
TeleHealth Solution, a physician-owned telehealth group, successfully leveraged the fully integrated system in Ohio nursing facilities under R&B Healthcare Systems, including Tri-County Care Center and Garden Manor Care Center.
“Having PointClickCare integrate was a vital and necessary step. It shows the interoperability of the Dictum Health unit, but also helps in having a patient’s information all in one setting instead of requiring multiple steps to locate patient information,” stated Waseem Ghannam, MD, MBA, founder of TeleHealth Solution. “This reduces any possible medical transcription errors.”
During a Virtual Exam, a remote physician engages with the patient via video conferencing and may simultaneously view vital signs using Care Central software and cloud services. The PointClickCare integration seamlessly stores and manages patient data, eliminates paper records, manual data entry, transcription errors, and improves patient safety.
“The Dictum Health telehealth platform has become even more convenient and user-friendly now that the patient information and vital signs are automatically integrated into PointClickCare,” said Matt Spencer, LPN, and Clinical Care Coordinator at Garden Manor Care Center. “Even if you are unfamiliar with the IDM100 Medical Tablet, the seamless PointClickCare integration eliminates manual data of vital signs and patient data, ultimately leading to more accurate, patient-centered care.”
With a fully integrated EHR system, Dictum Health’s telehealth platform provides immediate access to the entire patient record to remote physicians assessing acute patients with minimal information and limited time. Having access to complete patient medical records, as well as all the diagnostic information gathered from the Virtual Exam Room, provides physicians with the confidence needed for fast and accurate diagnostic decision.
“Today, it is imperative for Telehealth encounters to have immediate and accurate patient information for effective clinical decision making," said Elizabeth Keate, VP of Product Management for Dictum Health. “Physicians value having all the information they need to assess and diagnose patients in as short amount of time as possible; providing a seamless integration with PointClickCare will ensure this is the case, helping to improve patient outcomes.”
