Intelligent InSites, Inc., the leading provider of enterprise real-time location systems (RTLS) software helping healthcare providers increase patient and staff satisfaction while improving operational performance, has announced that NuVista Living, a post-acute long-term care provider with facilities across the state of Florida, has implemented the InSites RTLS solution to give caregivers more time at the patient bedside.
“The RTLS solution from Intelligent InSites fully supports our goal of leading the transformation of modern healthcare delivery,” said Paul M. Walczak, Principal at NuVista Living. “Through the use of innovative technologies, we allow caregivers to spend more time with their patients, resulting in greater patient and staff satisfaction.”
According to Walczak, the InSites solution enables them to provide seamless delivery of care, by bringing together various clinical and non-clinical systems. Now the systems, such as electronic medical records (EMR), vital signs monitoring, advanced nurse call, and communication systems “talk to each other” – boosting overall efficiency, while also allowing caregivers the opportunity to spend more time providing “hands on care.”
As part of the NuVista Living Smart Room solution, clinicians wear locating tags that identify them and display their names on a wall-mounted monitor visible to patients. At the same time, the Smart Room infrastructure automatically provides clinicians with real-time patient information pulled from an electronic medical records system, including allergies, vital signs, test results, and medications that are due. The information shown on the caregiver’s monitor is tailored to the needs of the specific staff member – for example, a hostess who delivers meal trays sees only dietary orders and allergy information, whereas a doctor sees vital signs and test results. The integrated solution also helps to determine which tasks should be completed in which order to provide the most effective care for patients, as it notifies the appropriate caregiver by mobile device or offers real-time prompts when clinicians enter the room.
“It is very gratifying to know that our solution helps fulfill the vision of the NuVista Living community. By delivering a solution that ties disparate systems together and provides real-time information in a very meaningful way, we are able to help healthcare providers deliver better care and positively impact the satisfaction of their patients,” commented Mary Jagim, Chief Nursing Officer at Intelligent InSites.
