ST. PAUL, Minn., April 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Point of Care Decision Support (PCDS), leaders in the development and implementation of anticoagulation clinical decision support software, announce today the release of a new version (2.0) of their AC software. The application was developed with leading clinical thrombosis experts to specifically address the new and complex challenges of managing both warfarin and non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs), and enables healthcare provider teams to deliver consistent, measureable and evidence-based quality of care for patients on anticoagulants.
Key benefits to healthcare practitioners that electronically document care for patients on an oral anticoagulant therapy include:
- Central patient dashboard that allows you to understand the patient's history and plan in less than 60 seconds
- Automatic dosage calculations using validated nomograms to assist in medication management
- Integration with validated survey instruments such as CHA2DS2-VASc, HAS-BLED and HEMORR2HAGES
- Full patient plan of care instructions available to print providing a customized and relevant shared patient/clinician experience
- EMR agnostic integration with bidirectional flow of patient data that dramatically decreases data entry
- Enhanced reporting options that meet CMS/MACRA "high activity" improvement requirements
Stephen Hart, Vice President of Development said, "The functionality and data-driven approach to of our AC software continues to evolve based on industry needs and demands. With Point of Care AC 2.0, we transform the anticoagulant patient care process with evidence-based guidelines providing a validated electronic clinical decision support tool that can assist in patient anticoagulant therapy improvement." Hart added, "The PCDS team of developers strive to build tools which can help clinicians be more productive. A primary goal of the platform is for it to be easy to use and not difficult to learn. UI workflow interactions should provide only the relevant data for the task at hand and finishing that task should only take a minute and be a click away."
Point of Care Decision Support will be demonstrating AC 2.0 at the upcoming AC Forum Boot Camp for physicians, nurses and pharmacists that work with patients on oral anticoagulant therapies in Austin, Texas, April 23-24.
