CHICAGO, IL, August 16, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Today Myles Cochran, Director of Marketing at Jeron Electronic Systems, Inc., announced the release of the first five in a series of application briefs that explain how nurse call technology can address key issues facing acute care facilities. The briefs, written for a clinician audience, are organized by the specific and broad-reaching challenges of today's healthcare. Detailed in each brief are the solution-providing options and integrations available through the company's industry-leading Provider 790 nurse call platform.
"What makes these briefs different," according to Cochran "is that rather than listing all the features of our system that appeal to more technical audiences, such as a hospital's Bio-Med and IT groups, we're explaining to clinicians how Provider 790 nurse call addresses their needs. Within each key topic, the briefs explain the different options available from a caregiver perspective. There's often more than one option to address an issue and the briefs present the benefits of each option so that a facility can create a custom solution tailored to its specific needs."
When choosing the brief topics, Jeron examined the challenges staff face on a daily basis. How does the shortage of qualified nurses impact their work lives and the well being of their patients? What problems can the product solve for them?
Most healthcare executives are aware that beginning in 2014, the lowest quartile scores in hospital-acquired conditions will result in penalties of 1% on Medicare payments. "This allows us to demonstrate", said Cochran, "how Provider 790's tools can improve patient satisfaction HCAHPS scores." Richard Bankowitz, MD, Chief Medical Officer of Premier, Inc., in HealthLeaders Media Top Ten Quality Issues for 2013, adds a consumer perspective: "...hospitals want to get a sense of their overall safety within the entire organization and the public wants to understand that too."
