RED BANK, N.J., April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Collaborative Healthcare Solutions ("Collaborative") a leading multi-faceted health care organization, has selected the COMS Interactive (Clinical Outcomes Management Systems or "COMS") Daylight IQ™ product suite to enhance its clinical care plan. As part of this strategic initiative, Daylight IQ™ is being deployed through Collaborative's Physician House Call Service, Skilled and Non-medical Home Care Business, unique insurance captive programs for Skilled Nursing facilities, and Acute/Post-Acute Partners in the Northeast section of the United States.
The Collaborative clinical teams are incorporating direct access to information and point-of-care technology through Daylight IQ™, a Software as a Service (SaaS) product suite. Daylight IQ™ features a series of integrated, disease-based clinical protocols that significantly empower the entire clinical team by identifying changes in condition at the bedside. Daylight IQ™ highlights abnormal findings and provides the nursing team with appropriate interventions and/or physician communication. Early detection of even minor changes allows the care team to quickly resolve potential additional health challenges, ultimately reducing unnecessary hospital re-admissions.
"Collaborative's focus is on dual strategic goals of improving resident care through ongoing communication across the post-acute care continuum and simultaneously reducing hospital re-admissions," noted Vincent Brown, Chief Executive Officer, Collaborative Healthcare Solutions. "Providing clinical team members with innovative and life-saving technology tools is key to achieving our goals, and the residents and their families benefit from the extra effort made on their behalf."
The Daylight IQ™ product suite improves quality of care by closely tracking changes in condition and initiating appropriate clinical interventions. Key components of the product suite include an Automated Disease Care Guide Library, a Dynamic Nursing Assessment and Compare Module, all of which work in conjunction with each resident's disease profile. It's important to note that utilizing Daylight IQ™ reduces 30-day hospital readmissions and premature mortality by more than 50%.
"By design, COMS works with premier healthcare organizations and nursing facilities throughout the country," noted Edward J. Tromczynski, Chief Executive Officer, COMS Interactive. "Collaborative is a perfect clinical and risk management partner for COMS, and we're pleased to join forces with the team in this strategic partnership."
Industry data shows that the average nursing home resident has a complicated health profile, including one primary disease and up to eight secondary diseases or afflictions. Over 70% of re-hospitalizations from a skilled nursing facility are due to a secondary or new disease progression. By providing early detection of an individual's change in condition, Daylight IQ™ highlights potential problems and offers caregivers the opportunity to respond, preventing further progression of the illness or affliction.
