LOS ANGELES, June 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- JPH Consulting, Inc. (JPH), a leading California long-term care management organization, has selected the COMS Interactive (Clinical Outcomes Management System) Daylight IQ™ product suite as the foundation for its disease management program. Daylight IQ™ is being deployed at JPH's ten facilities located throughout California and Nevada.
A Software as a Service (SaaS) product, Daylight IQ™ facilitates immediate clinical benefits. Daylight IQ™ features integrated, disease-based clinical protocols that significantly empower a clinical team by identifying changes in condition at the bedside. Highlighting abnormal findings, Daylight IQ™ provides the nursing team with appropriate interventions and/or physician communication.
"Our primary focus is on improving the resident quality of care, while simultaneously reducing unnecessary re-hospitalization," noted Carol Lowe, Regional Director of Operations, JPH Consulting. "By deploying Daylight IQ™, we are enhancing clinical excellence and we're excited to incorporate this unique solution into our disease management strategy."
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. Utilizing Daylight IQ™ reduces 30-day hospital re-admissions and premature mortality by more than 50%.
"As a market leader, JPH clearly understands the value of disease management as a key component in reducing unnecessary hospital re-admissions," noted Edward J. Tromczynski, Chief Executive Officer, COMS Interactive. "The deployment of Daylight IQ™ signifies a further commitment by the JPH management team to achieve increasingly positive clinical outcomes and we're pleased to partner with this forward-thinking organization."
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.
