New Patient Rounding Mobile App for Behavioral Health Improves Safety, Efficiency, Compliance and Quality of Care
Fargo, ND – October 22, 2019 – Intelligent InSites, the leading provider of operational intelligence for healthcare, announces the launch of AccuRoundTM by Intelligent InSites, a mobile application designed to streamline patient rounding processes in the behavioral health setting, making rounding more efficient and accurate, and delivering actionable data to provide better and safer patient care.
“In behavioral health, completing standard safety checks on time is critical to the health and well-being of patients,” says Shane Waslaski, President & CEO of Intelligent InSites. “Traditional manual processes have been counterproductive to these standards. AccuRound puts data in the hands of caregivers to make timely, informed decisions. It prompts caregivers to complete their next round, provides a more complete picture of their patient’s condition and needs, and ultimately provides them with the visibility to deliver the quality of care a patient needs.”
AccuRound provides care teams with mobile access to patient rounding priorities and key patient observation data. Leveraging Bluetooth Low Energy technology (BLE), AccuRound prioritizes patient rounds based on proximity of caregiver to patient. Each observer’s patient list automatically updates based on time from the prior observation and based on the observer’s proximity to each patient. This gives observers real-time visibility into which patient to see next in order to complete patient rounds on time.
Additionally, AccuRound provides visibility into key patient risk factors as well as prior observations and notes, giving care teams the data to proactively assess and plan for their next patient round. At each round, observers electronically record their observation, including interactions, activities, behaviors and notes within the customizable entry screen. If staff members need immediate assistance, a simple button press triggers an alert, sending a notification to team members. All of this functionality is available in-the-moment and on-the-go.
A suite of reports and analytics also come standard with AccuRound and are available at the click of a button. Compliance rates are automatically calculated and can be displayed by patient, observer or department. Each patient’s observation history can be viewed in detail to note any missed observations, or can be sorted by findings, location or time. Observations can be viewed by observer to evaluate compliance metrics, and dive into any associated discrepancies.
AccuRound removes the burden that comes with manual rounding processes, giving caregivers the power to make real-time decisions to deliver safer, more efficient and better patient care.
