CLEVELAND and MINNEAPOLIS, March 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- COMS Interactive, LLC, also known as Clinical Outcomes Management Systems ("COMS") has chosen Health Dimensions Group ("HDG") to collaboratively enhance their collective service offerings. The agreement creates an opportunity for the two organizations' clinical applications, products and services deployment, management and consulting services.
The COMS flagship product, Daylight IQ™, features a series of integrated, disease-based clinical protocols that significantly empower the entire care team including physicians, therapists, nurses, and nurse aides, and facilitates enhanced communication between all parties. The Software as a Service (SaaS) product empowers clinical teams with information and technology at the point-of-care, resulting in significantly improved clinical capabilities, and directly increasing an organization's census with related improvements in financial outcomes. A key focus of Daylight IQ™ is the reduction in unnecessary hospital readmissions by as much as 50%, and a related decrease in premature mortality rates.
"Health Dimensions Group continues to be at the forefront of healthcare reform and its impact on post-acute and senior service providers," noted Edward J. Tromczynski, Chief Executive Officer, COMS Interactive, LLC. "Given the many challenges facing our customers, we certainly look forward to our partnership with the Health Dimensions team."
Health Dimensions Group provides industry-leading expertise in consulting and management services to hospitals, health systems, post-acute, long-term care, and senior living facilities across the US. COMS products are used in leading skilled nursing and assisted living facilities and home care organizations. The joint initiative invites deeper market penetration for both companies, introducing COMS products to HDG's client base, and introducing the HDG consulting offerings to COMS customers.
"COMS has streamlined an excellent process for reducing hospital re-admissions," stated Craig Abbott, Chief Executive Officer, Health Dimensions Group. "Daylight IQ™ offers an innovative platform for clinical decision support and we are excited about our relationship."
