Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) July 11, 2014

Diagnotes Inc. and Advanced Healthcare Associates (AHA) today announced an agreement that will place the Diagnotes mobile and web-based clinical communication system in the hands of AHAs medical directors, physicians and nurse practitioners at more than 100 nursing homes in Central Indiana and Kentucky.

Our highly skilled clinicians have been providing leading-edge geriatric care for nursing home patients since 1988, said Bryon Miller, JD, GNP of AHA. The Diagnotes technology makes us one of the first post acute care practices in the nation to incorporate truly secure, mobile communication throughout our organization from our 24-hour nurse triage call center to our medical directors, rounding clinicians and billing staff.

The two companies initiated a pilot program in April 2014, initially integrating the Diagnotes system into the triage call center where more than 20 trained nurses take calls around-the-clock from AHA-staffed nursing homes reporting patient information and requesting clinician consultation and orders.

The Diagnotes secure text messaging and secure voicemail technologies allow triage nurses to communicate vital information to the clinician, and to verify that it has been received, explained Dave Wortman, Diagnotes chairman and CEO. Because professional staff scheduling is incorporated, the triage center is able to quickly identify and contact the on-call physician or nurse practitioner.

The mobile and web-based platform is designed for a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) environment, in which all users are able to use the smartphone, tablet, or laptop of their choice at any location. Diagnotes pushes critical information current medications, histories, allergies, etc. from the patients medical record to the clinician. Those facts, along with the triage information from the call center, efficiently provide what the practitioner needs to make a timely treatment decision.

The closed-loop system also allows the clinician to communicate follow-up and transition information to other team members, and to document the encounter, choosing from provided codes and descriptions to securely send details to the billing office. AHA, in the early stages of implementation, is already seeing decreased response times and increased revenue capture.

All evidence suggests that the Diagnotes communication system will allow us to improve the quality of care we deliver, with greater efficiency and effectiveness, said Meredith Hole, practice administrator. We couldnt be more pleased that we chose to partner with Diagnotes in this endeavor.

Wortman echoed the comments of Miller and Hole. We have an aging population, and the practice of geriatric medicine is bound to grow in nursing homes, smart medical homes, and congregate living, he said. AHA is clearly planning for the future by keeping its operations and staff on the cutting-edge of medical care for our seniors. Were proud to be their choice for enhanced mobile communication.

Advanced Health Assessment & Clinical Diagnosis in Primary Care, 4e

Advanced Health Assessment & Clinical Diagnosis in Primary Care, 4e

Designed for advanced practice nurses and advanced practice nursing students, as well as Physician’s Assistant students and practitioners, Advanced Health Assessment & Clinical Diagnosis in Primary Care, 4th Edition, is a practical resource that takes you to the “next step” of health assessment, beyond basic history and physical examination and through the diagnostic reasoning process. Accessible and concise, it approaches physical examination by focusing on a specific chief complaint rather than a diagnosis of a disease entity. Each chapter is organized into four major areas: Focused History; Focused Physical Examination; Laboratory and Diagnostic Studies; and Differential Diagnosis. Those who master the diagnostic reasoning process in this text will be able to accurately diagnose the majority of conditions they will see in clinical practice.

  • Easy-to-follow format with consistent organization improves your ability to understand and accurately perform the different elements of the diagnostic reasoning process:
    • Focused History sections walk you through the thinking process involved in obtaining a pertinent, relevant, problem-specific history that will assist in differential diagnosis.
    • Key Questions highlight what questions to ask the patient, followed by an explanation of what the patient’s responses might signify, to guide you toward an accurate assessment and precise diagnosis.
    • Focused Physical Examination sections explain how to conduct more advanced diagnostic techniques and offer interpretations of the findings.
    • Laboratory and Diagnostic Studies sections give a brief outline of what types of laboratory or diagnostic studies would be appropriate for the chief complaint or suspected diagnosis.
    • Differential Diagnosis sections contain the most common differential diagnoses for each chief complaint and summarize the history and physical examination findings, along with the laboratory and diagnostic studies indicated.
  • Differential Diagnosis tables offer an at-a-glance summary of possible diagnoses.
  • Reordered table of contents, organized alphabetically by patient problem rather than by body system, simplifies and accelerates information retrieval. A list of chapters by body system is also included for reference.
  • Three new chapters:
    • Chapter 23: Palpitations
    • Chapter 36: Weight Loss/Gain (Unintentional)
    • Chapter 38: The Abdominal X-ray
  • Additional Evidence-Based Practice boxes provide additional research-based tips on conducting the most effective exams for more accurate diagnoses.
