LOS ANGELES, Aug. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Zynx Health™, the market leader in providing evidence- and experience-based clinical improvement solutions, today announced it has enhanced its ZynxCarebook™ mobile care coordination solution with new evidence-based transitions of care content. Developed specifically by Zynx Health, this content provides the most relevant care guidance to further improve care team coordination and the patient's healthcare experience in moving to new care settings.
"Patients are at their most vulnerable when transitioning from the hospital to the nursing home, outpatient practice, or other facility," said John Chang, M.D., senior director of content for Zynx Health. "Our clinicians are experts at organizing the available wealth of evidence-based content that often goes unused but can dramatically ease those changeovers. By adding our transitions of care content to ZynxCarebook, we can make the best evidence-based information accessible to the workflows of all care team members working across all care settings, thus assuring the highest patient safety adherence."
Zynx Health's team of clinicians accumulates and appraises peer-reviewed research, national guidelines, and performance measures. These experts classify the evidence sources based on a rigorous, reproducible, and tested methodology. This meticulous editorial process drives Zynx Health's transitions of care content to comprise the most relevant evidence-based clinical care guidance and best practices from evidence-based transitions of care models such as Project RED® and Project BOOST®.
Healthcare organizations can improve outcomes by utilizing transitions of care content embedded in ZynxCarebook that not only provides evidence-based clinical guidance but also enables the optimization of workflow around the discharge and transition process. Ultimately, the combination of improved communication with care guidance–enabled workflow allows standardized care delivery that is based on the most current evidence-based best practices. With ZynxCarebook, along with our industry-proven, customer-driven implementation and methodology–armed with this inclusive, richer medical knowledge–the care team providers can optimally improve financial and clinical outcomes beyond the limited use of an individual evidence source.
Organizations using ZynxCarebook for their mobile care coordination needs have demonstrated significant improvements in their care transitions, reductions in readmission rates, and decreases in lengths of stay. These outcomes not only lower costs, but are also consistent with the goals outlined by government healthcare-improvement initiatives such as the Value-Based Purchasing Program, the Hospital Readmission Reduction Program, and the Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment Program.
