I couldn't live without ... COMS Interactive nursing assessments and data monitoring
Matthew Wayne, M.D.
Comprehensive nursing assessments and data monitoring tools from COMS Interactive provide critical help to the CommuniCare Family of Companies, according to Chief Medical Officer Matthew Wayne, M.D.
COMS promotes staff completing a full nursing assessment at least once a day.
“It really does a nice job of integrating frontline nursing assessment into nursing leadership and team discussion. It allows for better communication to our medical team,” Wayne says. COMS also helps with disease management, and in reducing hospital readmissions.
“It augments our clinical care,” he says. “It's a supplement to the electronic health record. This is optimal for the care of a complex transitional type of patient.”
Wayne says he uses COMS and a separate MDS tool to study hospital returns, and he's seen them drop from around 23% to 15%.---
COMS Interactive, LLC combines disease management and business administration tools to reduce hospital readmissions and improve resident health. A benefit of its Daylight IQ is the ability to increase skilled case mix and enhance revenue.
