Advanced Healthcare Associates Choose Diagnotes for Nursing Home Workers

July 09, 2014

Diagnotes has announced that Advanced Healthcare Associates will deploy its software to nursing home staff.

“The Diagnotes technology makes us one of the first post acute care practices in the nation to incorporate truly secure, mobile communication throughout our organization – from our 24-hour nurse triage call center to our medical directors, rounding clinicians and billing staff,” Bryon Miller, AHA geriatric nurse practitioner, said.

AHA will deploy Diagnotes in more than 100 nursing homes in Central Indiana and Kentucky. The two companies had already been participating in a trial program in April.

Diagnotes allows Web and tablet users to communicate important medical information, including current medications, medical histories, and allergies to clinicians. Clinicians can also securely code medical procedures so that they can be billed accurately.

The system is designed especially for a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) environment, where healthcare workers use their own computers, tablets and smartphones rather than having them supplied by the companies they work for. While there are benefits to having end users become more responsible for their IT needs, supporting multiple devices can be difficult. Healthcare practitioners have seen the advantages of using mobile devices in their work, as they allow them to move around while still accessing important data.

Despite the early pitfalls, Diagnotes is optimistic about its potential for growth. The company said that it is already seeing decreased wait times and more accurate billing.

“The Diagnotes secure text messaging and secure voicemail technologies allow triage nurses to communicate vital information to the clinician, and to verify that it has been received,” Diagnotes chairman and CEO Dave Wortman said “Because professional staff scheduling is incorporated, the triage center is able to quickly identify and contact the on-call physician or nurse practitioner.”

Wortman said that the need for more systems like Diagnotes will increase in coming years as Baby Boomers retire and start to migrate to nursing homes. “AHA is clearly planning for the future by keeping its operations and staff on the cutting-edge of medical care for our seniors. We’re proud to be their choice for enhanced mobile communication,” he said.

Cost Savings or Customer Experience? It Doesn't Have to be a Choice

It's a simple fact - customers expect quality. They expect things to work. They expect not to have problems. That said, most accept they may encounter issues from time to time but, when they do, they expect quick and easy resolution. In other words, they expect your customer service to work. "Work," though, may mean very different things in terms of having appropriate resolution mechanisms in place, depending largely on the personal preferences of the customer. [ Read More ]
