The Optimus EMR® Electronic Medical Records System utilizes a variety of computer technologies to document at the POC, including hand held PDAs, wireless touch-screen computers, wall-mounted kiosks, tablet PCs, and laptops. The POC charting opportunities support all disciplines, and the variety of devices used allows the organization to select the right tool for each caregiver’s workflow. This flexibility increases point of care interoperability and makes the Optimus system the best integrated medical records software for any type of facility.
Using a variety of mobile devices, Optimus EMR® users can take advantage of the unique ID located on the resident’s wristband and caregiver’s ID badge. POC documentation and unique IDs enhance accountability and staff performance, while increasing the amount of accurate data collected about each resident’s care. With the Optimus electronic medical records System, the data collected at the POC and elsewhere automatically complete all relevant sections of the databases for future access through the eChart, and for use in reports, eCC alerts, and MDS calculations.
Point-of-care charting systems and customizable alerts dramatically increase the quality of patient care while eliminating hand-written charts and legibility issues. Customizable real time alerts notify the administrative staff of potential issues so possible problems can be averted. Using Optimus EMR® structured notes and clinical pathways, caregivers can effortlessly create high quality records, while avoiding errors and omissions in their clinical activities. Not only does POC documentation provide a faster flow of information and a streamlined charting process, it also removes the potential for error caused by notoriously difficult-to-read handwritten annotation on paper charts. Caregivers can complete their charting responsibilities simply by clicking on check-boxes that represent specific data. This system allows for more face time with residents, and less time allocated to administration.
Optimus EMR’s® comprehensive combination of point-of-care data collection devices is just one of many reasons why Optimus is the best integrated medical records software available. Once a CNA has collected ADL information, that information becomes available in real time for the automatic completions of the relevant sections of the MDS for any look back period based on the ARD selected.
