Better Handoffs, Happier Teams
One platform to support teaming, handoffs, and patient care.
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.
Data shows that 80% of serious medical errors involve miscommunication between care teams1. CareAlign improves team collaboration and handoffs by bringing the entire care team together in a single platform and incorporating evidence based practices into a digital workspace. Three out of four users have reported that CareAlign has prevented errors in their practice.
Efficiency & Effectiveness
Individual task load is directly linked to higher levels of burnout. CareAlign’s shared workspace and task lists support team based medicine – reducing time wasted on inefficient, siloed workflows. Designed to support all disciplines, from doctors to nurses, and more – CareAlign gets the entire care team on the same page so they can share the load. CareAlign users report saving an hour per day.
Budgets are tight, but the good news is that CareAlign helps capture diagnosis that would otherwise be lost on paper lists. At a large, academic health system, CareAlign significantly improved CMI, leading to increased revenue and improved savings. CareAlign pays for itself.
