Enhancements for Long-Term Care Facilities Enable More Proactive Care and
Help Maximize Reimbursement Opportunities
PITTSBURGH, Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Vocollect Healthcare Systems, Inc. announces the launch of AccuNurse Version 2.0, for voice-powered, point-of- care documentation, communication and proactive care specifically for the long-term care (LTC) industry.
The enhanced features of AccuNurse derived directly from user feedback generate significant new benefits for LTC facilities, chief among them:
-- Maximized reimbursement. With AccuNurse 2.0, Activities of Daily Living
(ADL) scores are now calculated daily, giving LTC facilities a tool to
maximize reimbursement opportunities.
-- More proactive care. With AccuNurse 2.0, caregivers are alerted to
potential issues directly at the point of care. For example, when
weighing a resident, if the weight a caregiver speaks is lower than
expected, AccuNurse will prompt the caregiver to re-weigh the resident
immediately. Also, caregivers can now hear scheduled reminders for
appointments, turning/positioning and toileting.
-- Up to the minute information caregivers need on demand. Incorporating
input from LTC industry professionals has resulted in an extremely
intuitive and user-friendly system. Caregivers equipped with the new
pocket-sized AccuNurse Voice Assistant(TM) and an ultra-light headset
can get access to specific resident information anywhere in the
facility in just a few words. New personal voice profiles accommodate
any accent. Supervisory and support staff can pull up a wide variety of
real-time reports through a new, intuitive, web-based application.
-- Reports that demonstrate credibility to surveyors. Skin integrity
reporting has been dramatically improved in that nurses can efficiently
review progress of
