Advancements in nurse call technology unearths a wealth of valuable data for care homes when surfaced alongside daily care records.
GHM Care has announced their flagship nurse call messaging and reporting tool Nexus will now integrate with Nourish Care’s digital care management platform. The ability to integrate personal care records with a nurse call system is a huge step towards a joined-up care environment.
Nexus is a messaging platform that delivers nurse call alerts directly to the smartphones of carers, improving staff efficiencies and response times.
The integration with Nourish will allow Nexus users to link nurse call activity against a resident’s personal care records, driving a greater resident experience through interoperability. Care teams will have complete transparency of the time of the day calls are being made, time of acceptance, reason for the call and the resolution times. This information surfaced alongside daily care records offers contextual oversight, further promoting better care decisions and outcomes. In addition, the integration will enable care teams to run detailed reports and populate care plans within Nourish.
Care homes will benefit from a more comprehensive picture of the personal care provided through more powerful data.
Neil McManus, Managing Director of GHM Care says: “It’s been great working with Nourish on this project and now we can deliver exactly what our joint customers have asked for. The new functionality has been launched in response to the needs of care homes who previously would not have the time or capacity to record every nurse call alert in a resident’s personal care records.
As a result, there is often a disconnect between care records and nurse call activity. The new integration overcomes this by automatically updating Nourish personal care records with any associated nurse call activity.”
Steve Lawrence, Head of Proposition and Partnerships from Nourish Care adds: “We are thrilled to be partnering with GHM Care, their leading nurse call solution will open the door to new and exciting data insights when surfaced alongside daily care records housed in Nourish. I look forward to seeing the positive impact this delivers for care teams and those they support.”
Training & Development Lead Luke Annetts from Blackadder Corporation had this to say.
“I think the integration between Nexus and Nourish has worked well, the information transfers quickly from the Nexus cloud onto Nourish. I think that this information will be really helpful for reporting purposes. Especially when we look at accidents/incidents and response times”.
