COMS Daylight IQ®
COMS Daylight IQ® Product Suite – A Disease Management System for enhanced Quality of Care, Improved Stakeholder Satisfaction, Maximum Performance and Strong Financial Outcomes.
The COMS Daylight IQ® disease management system, which is based upon more than ten years of clinical experience in geriatric and skilled nursing care, features a series of integrated, disease-based, clinical protocols for physicians, nurses, nursing supervisors and directors of nursing. Deployment of the COMS product suite facilitates optimal team decision making for each resident’s personal healthcare progress.Disease Management – The average skilled nursing home resident has one primary disease and often eight secondary diseases or afflictions. The Daylight IQ product suite assists the nursing staff in managing multiple diseases and changes in condition. This leads to:
Automated Clinical Logic/Care Guides – Daylight IQ helps caregivers track multiple diseases through the use of Care Guides. The Care Guides include a set of measurable disease-based outcomes, creating a framework of rules that drive disease-specific alerts to the frontline nursing staff. The Care Guides contain fully-defined information on disease and affliction categories. For each category, hundreds of variations are defined, including probable symptoms and appropriate interventions. An assessment data dictionary and assessment generator help provide information for consistent recording and review of resident health.
Nursing Assessments – The COMS advanced Nursing Assessment organizes vital criteria and parameters into groups and categories. The information is captured and utilized by frontline caregivers to record observations about each resident. This configurable Nursing Assessment is a powerful way to gather, compare and analyze a resident's medical data and interventions on a shift-to-shift or a day-to-day basis. The medical director and/or the director of nursing set parameters which provide an alert for any anomalies. The Nursing Assessment information can also be used for reviewing best practices and training.
Reporting – Daylight IQ generates a number of dynamic online and offline on-request reports for executive management, nursing management, nurses and nurses aides. Additional reports can be created as needed. Daylight IQ can be integrated easily into existing applications. The company offers an applications programming interface (API) which lays the foundation for a seamless connection between Daylight IQ and systems already in place at the facility.
