QUÉBEC, May 22, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - MediaMed Technologies is pleased to
announce the digitization of the patient care unit at Papineau
Hospital. This is the hospital's first patient care unit to be equipped
with Med-Care Plus, a clinical management system designed for nurses
and physicians. The application allows healthcare professionals to plan
and schedule clinical patient interventions, in real time.
Implemented on May 7th, nursing staff now has immediate access to all information pertaining
to a patient`s specific episode of care from anywhere on the unit
thanks to five portable computer devices and five fixed work stations.
As well, the application includes a complete view of the patient care
unit with a real time dashboard installed at the nursing station. The
patient care plan initiated in ER is automatically transferred to the
patient care unit without manual input. The interface and transfer of
data from the emergency room to the patient care unit reduces the time
required for transcription of data, reduces risk of error and frees up
nursing time which results in more meaningful patient care.
"Since Day 1, the response from the staff has been positive", said Ms.
Adele Gorman, the acting patient unit manager. "Med-Care Plus increases
both quality of care and patient safety. The application streamlines
the transcription of patient information to the patient's health
record. The electronic transfer of patient data from our ER
Application, Med-Urge to Med-Care Plus speeds up access to clinical
patient information", Mrs. Gorman added.
For physicians, the introduction of Med-Care Plus allows instant access
to patient records and treatment protocols. In addition, they can now
track the patient's progress and test results directly on the patient
"Med-Care Plus, interfaced with Med-Urge, facilitates communication
between clinicians and improves the quality of care for patients," said
Dr. Jean Mireault, vice president, clinical affairs MediaMed
Med-Care Plus is an application that helps nurses and physicians
follow-up on patient assignments and related nurse workloads. The
dashboard offers real time visualization of the physical location of
patients within a care unit. The seamless transfer of patient
information and automation of clinical protocols standardizes the
quality of care, improves patient flow, allows for measurements of
delays and consequently optimizes patient length of stay.
