Patient care is never a solo task. However, the tools clinicians rely on every day do not empower teams to work together. EHRs do not fully support clinical workflows, forcing clinicians to manage their tasks on printed lists. Therefore, care plans, diagnosis and tasks are often lost on individual notes and trapped in pockets where they can’t be seen by the rest of the team. This leads to wasted time and communication errors, and those valuable updates never make it into the chart.
CareAlign, a digital workspace for clinicians, was built to support collaborative workflows. Now, rather than building their individual plans on pieces of paper, clinicians can see and update the same dynamic care plan for their shared patients – including rounding lists, shared tasks lists coupled with up-to-date labs and vitals. CareAlign’s one of a kind note writer leverages this information to generate notes and eliminate double documentation.
CareAlign supports and enables evidence based handoff frameworks including IPASS and SBAR to help residency programs meet their ACGME Teaming/Handoff requirements.
