"Long-term care facilities can now provide their nursing staff point-of-care access to consistent, accurate and current information that helps improve health outcomes for their residents," said
The new category includes content devoted entirely to the special needs of the nursing home, long-term post-acute, sub-acute, independent living and hospice patient. New content is being added to core sections of the software product--including Diseases and Conditions and Nursing Care Plans for Medical Diagnosis--that give clinicians, regardless of setting, immediate answers to their most pressing health information needs.
"The acuity of long-term care residents is increasing," continued McCann. "Easy and rapid access to current, evidence-based clinical information is increasingly important to ensure optimized outcomes and care quality."
All of the evidence-based, originally written content is being reviewed by a team of more than 20 practicing long-term care managers, administrators and educators to ensure that it properly addresses the requirements of long-term care patients. The project started earlier this year and will continue into 2014, with content being added to the application on a quarterly basis.
