PatientTouch® platform to be demoed at the
Health Information Management and Systems Society (HIMSS) 2019
Conference in Orlando, Florida

(PatientSafe), a clinical communication and collaboration
(CC&C) solution innovator for the healthcare enterprise, today announced
enhancements to the PatientTouch platform including integrated
and Patient Handoff as well as increased privacy and
flexibility for physicians. PatientSafe provides healthcare
systems with a unified clinical communication and workflow solution for
the entire extended care team to improve care efficiency, security,
patient safety and satisfaction.
PatientTouch will be demoed at the
19th annual Healthcare Information and Management Systems
Society (HIMSS) conference in the PatientSafe, Cisco, Connection and
Jamf booths.

Ensuring Physician Privacy, Access to On-call Teams, Patients, and
their Families

PatientTouch provides physicians with real-time access to their personal
on-call schedule as well as to all other physicians currently on-call.
It also protects physician privacy with outgoing and incoming number
, and by hiding personal phone numbers in the
healthcare enterprise directory. The app enables physicians to
communicate with those not on PatientTouch — providers at other health
systems, patients, and their families — seamlessly from within the
application via secure SMS paging or voice calls that display the
physician’s office number, not their personal cell number.

Improving Patient Satisfaction, Reducing Falls and Staff Turnover
with Rounding

Reducing falls, staff turnover and improving patient satisfaction scores
reduces cost, length of stay, and increases reimbursements. With
PatientTouch Rounding, health systems can proactively address the needs
of their patients and staff while improving the quality of care with PatientTouch
Nurse, Leader and Executive Rounding
. PatientTouch is the only
iPhone-compatible rounding tool that offers Positive Patient
Identification (PPID) barcode scanning from the iPhone’s native camera,
one-touch access to patient context, rounding questionnaires, and
checklist workflows tightly integrated with care team communication —
all in a single app. Real-time dashboards and analytics enable hospital
leaders and front-line clinicians to zero-in on and instantly
communicate patient-specific needs with real-time quality and service
recovery solutions.

Improving Patient Safety and Continuity of Care with Patient Handoff

Accurate and timely communication of patient information at shift change
is critical for safe, quality care. PatientTouch Handoff ensures
transitions of care occur consistently
via a customizable mobile
check-list, iPhone access to patient context from the EMR, and soft scan
PPID of the patient and receiving nurse. With PatientTouch, clinicians
can quickly assess patient status with one-touch access to patient meds,
labs, vitals, and other clinical data. Integrated notifications
streamline communication of incoming patients and iPhone PPID scanning
ensures clinician responsibility transfer occurs at receipt of patient
(e.g. transfer from OR to Med/Surg floor). Detailed reports and
analytics enable hospitals to measure and manage the quality, outcomes,
and compliance of patient handoffs and other transitions to enhance
patient care and safety.

Superior Voice Quality, Reliability and Device Manageability

As a Cisco Preferred Solutions Partner, PatientSafe delivers a
more streamlined implementation process, no downtime for upgrades and
maintenance, and lower IT costs by eliminating the need for additional
servers. The PatientTouch platform fully integrates with Cisco’s CUCM
system to optimize mobility and HIPAA-compliant communication throughout
the healthcare enterprise. PatientTouch is also Cisco Fastlane enabled,
delivering superior voice quality and enabling prioritization of
mission-critical communications in iOS over Cisco Wi-Fi networks. See
PatientTouch in Cisco’s Healthcare Anywhere experience in booth #848.

Together with Jamf, the standard in Apple device management,
PatientSafe proactively manages the entire lifecycle of a health
system’s Apple devices and applications. MDM solutions are critical for
IT teams seeking to rapidly deploy applications, remotely configure
settings, and centrally manage security and inventory control.
