What Problems Do We Solve?

PHYSICIANS

Who are frustrated and dissatisfied because they are assigned an unsafe workload once a month.

PATIENTS

Who are frustrated and dissatisfied because they are seen by different physicians and nurses daily.

NURSES

Who are frustrated and dissatisfied because they waste time and energy tracking down other care team members.

All of These Are the Result of…

SUBOPTIMAL Workload Balancing,

SUBOPTIMAL Continuity of Care &

INEFFECTIVE Care Collaboration

FIX THESE AND YOU…

IMPROVE PATIENT OUTCOMES

IMPROVE PATIENT SATISFACTION

IMPROVE CARE TEAM SATISFACTION

LOWER LOS

REDUCE 30 DAY READMISSIONS

IMPROVE OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY

WORKLOAD, QUALITY OF CARE & LOS

Numerous studies show how heavy workloads affect care and provider satisfaction.

Why Haven’t These Issues Been Addressed Already?

BECAUSE THEY ARE COMPLEX AND HARD.

TAKE A FRAIL, ELDERLY PATIENT.

THIS IS WHAT HER CARE MIGHT LOOK LIKE.

MANAGEABLE?

SURE.

BUT WHAT ABOUT THE OTHER 200+ PATIENTS THROUGHOUT THE DAY?

THIS IS WHAT THAT MIGHT LOOK LIKE…

IT’S NOT UNLIKE AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL AND JUST AS DANGEROUS.

When a plane or patient is missed, there are potentially serious or deadly consequences.

Patient Traffic

LET’S BE CLEAR. IT’S VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO MANAGE THIS ASSIGNMENT COMPLEXITY MANUALLY.

SECURE COMMUNICATIONS ALONE ISN’T THE SOLUTION EITHER.

Secure messaging platforms aren’t adopted by every care team member.

And they still don’t tell you which care team member is assigned to which patient.

That makes it difficult or time consuming tracking down the right person.

THE BEST SOLUTION IS TO BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER BY FOCUSING ON THE CARE TEAM ASSIGNMENT PROCESS.

INTRODUCING

ASSIGNCARE

From MedAptus

The most innovative collaboration platform for acute care hospitals today

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS.

Using a proprietary “rules engine,” the software intelligently matches the right patient with the right care team member.

That means…

Factors such as patient acuity, geography, continuity of care are intelligently and automatically combined to balance workloads and facilitate care team communication.

No more wasted time hunting down care team members.

No more missed patients from overloaded assignments.

No more team care frustration from workload imbalances.

No more patient dissatisfaction from discontinuity of care.

No more favoritism or rumblings of unfairness.

Instead of this…
