As part of its deployment, AccuNurse will integrate with the facility's AOD Elite Clinical & Financial software from Answers on Demand (AOD), Inc.

Right now, we are spending 30 minutes at the end of every shift documenting our care initiatives. That additional time will be eliminated with voice, enabling us to direct it back where it belongs -- with our residents." Continuous charting throughout a shift will also enable Heritage to take accuracy to new levels.
