Nightingale On Demand – A Complete EMR Solution
With medication guidelines, interaction, and education information at their fingertips, General Surgeons can provide better care. Valuable data, such as patient histories, consultations and referrals is available in the hospital operating room, out-patient surgical facility, local clinic and office exam room. In addition, Nightingale On Demand allows General Surgeons to operate a more efficient practices by accelerating patient encounter documentation, billing processes and referral letter creation.
General Surgeons and their patients benefit from the advantages of EMR technologies, such as electronic lab results and imaging, which are integrated into Nightingale On Demand. Surgeons can quickly add comments to lab results for later consultation. To make it easier to spot abnormal results, Nightingale On Demand clearly highlights assessments and value comparisons that fall outside of the normal parameters.
Patient encounter dictation
Many General Surgeons prefer not to capture their findings in front of patients during an encounter. As a result, some surgeons write or dictate consult letters to the referring physician after the visit, which adds hours to an already long work day. Nightingale On Demand uses integrated transcription and speech-recognition software to permit surgeons to produce consult letters in less than a minute.
General Surgeons know the importance tests play in assessing patients’ health. They rely on accurate data from CT scans, MRI and ultrasound to deliver high-quality care. But the data is of limited value if it can’t be accessed promptly. Nightingale On Demand’s “One patient, One record” approach promotes easy online access to critical data when it is needed most. To promote data-driven patient care, Nightingale On Demand notifies the surgeons as soon as a test results are available for review.
With each prescription, General Surgeons usually need to verify the drugs’ interaction with allergies, food and other medications. The consequences of failure are grave. Nightingale On Demand comes with the Cerner Multum database to automate drug interaction checking of prescriptions, including anticoagulants, diuretics and pain killers. The solution also assigns prescription numbers to aide with tracking prescriptions and help thwart drug abuse.
