Linking Technology to Improve Quality and Clinician Performance

Santa Barbara, CA and Lancaster, PA (PRWEB) March 24, 2008 — Strategic Healthcare Programs a provider of real-time performance data services and Thornberry Ltd, a developer and marketer of intelligent, management information systems for the home healthcare and hospice industry, today announced implementation of their new interface at LaPorte Regional Health System’s VNA HomeCare and HospiceCare in Michigan City, Indiana.

LaPorte has been using SHP for some time to analyze patient and caregiver data entered into Thornberry’s clinical point of care software, NDoc, said executive director Virginia Davis.

“The new automated web interface not only speeds the transfer of data from the NDoc clinical system to Strategic Healthcare Programs (SHP) software, it also enables clinician-level analysis of OASIS data. It is saving staff a lot of time that used to be spent looking up clinician and primary nurse.”


This is another example of how home health care leaders are investing in new technology solutions to improve the quality of patient care and internal operations. What are you doing to use technology in new ways? Comment below or send us an email.
