LOS ANGELES, July 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Zynx Health™, the market leader in providing evidence- and experience-based clinical improvement solutions, today announced that its ZynxCarebook™ mobile care coordination solution is now available on Android smartphones and tablets. With this expansion, care team members at inpatient and post-care organizations can use ZynxCarebook to securely exchange messages and share assessments on the same patient's condition, streamline care transitions to other care settings, and improve clinical outcomes using Android as well as iOS mobile devices.
"The ability to coordinate transitional patient care between interdisciplinary teams working within a hospital as well as in different care settings is a priority for provider organizations and a major step forward in supporting new value-based payment models," said Siva Subramanian, Ph.D., senior vice president of mobile products at Zynx Health. "Expanding the ZynxCarebook platform to empower harmonious interactions between Android and iOS users–all while the patient is at the center of care team-based communication–significantly enhances the delivery of quality care, reduces costs, and improves the patient's overall experience."
With ZynxCarebook, care teams are intelligently built around their patients using pick-up, assignment and referral logic that is customized to an organization's workflow, integrates with Admit Discharge Transfer (ADT) feeds, and is designed to follow the patient at each venue of care. This person-centered approach organizes all Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)-compliant messages, risk assessments, and discharge plans around the patient, enabling team members to easily access the latest clinical information.
Evidence-based best practices and risk-based interventions such as those found in Project RED® and Project BOOST® can be customized and built into ZynxCarebook workflows, ensuring that patients consistently receive the highest-quality care at the appropriate level of intensity.
In fact, use of ZynxCarebook has delivered a 22 percent reduction in 30-day all-cause readmission rates and a half-day reduction in average length of stay at Marin General Hospital in Greenbrae, Calif. Positive results were also measured within care teams: Seventy percent of users reported that they could "easily or efficiently contact all members of a patient's care team to notify them about changes to the discharge plans." Prior to ZynxCarebook's implementation, this sentiment was expressed by only about 10 percent of users.
