Cedar Rapids, IA, January 15, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The qMetrix Group introduces an expansion of their healthcare products with the addition of a unique feature — immediate compliance scoring of patient care data. qMetrix for Healthcare (QMHC) has been designed with the goal of quality improvement in patient care and US government regulation compliance. QMHC uses electronic health record (EHR) data, consolidates these elements with manually collected information, and provides performance and trending reports. This expansion significantly increases the sophistication of the solution by evaluating the data provided against the US government requirements.
The solution reduces the work required of quality improvement managers by using existing EHR data. Real-time compliance reports allow staff to easily address areas of concern and make corrections. Hospital executives will no longer wait months to review compliance ratings and initiatives to improve quality can be implemented in a much more timely fashion.
“The extensive time and effort qMetrix has put into this expansion process will provide hospitals with a level of transparency they have yet to experience,” comments Robin Mangold, principal of the qMetrix Group. “This real-time compliance visibility will make more relevant quality improvement initiatives possible. The qMetrix team is excited about the impact the expansion will have on patient outcomes.”
qMetrix for Healthcare is a single application used to electronically gather EHR patient data for CMS core measures, monitor patient care/CMS compliance, and provide decision support. qMetrix gives hospital staff concurrent patient dashboards to improve patient outcomes and hospital quality ratings. All patient data is immediately scored based on CMS requirements. There is no need to wait months to review compliance scores and staff can use this data to make and timely changes to patient care.
