Site of Care Systems installs neonatal care management system for New Mexico Health Services Center
San Francisco, CA -- March 28 --Site of Care Systems, the leading provider of integrated data management tools for maternal and child health care, today announced the successful installation of Daily Baby, a revolutionary information system for tracking the care of infants in the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center.
"In purchasing this care management system, our primary goal was to be able to produce reliable and complete ‘real time’ discharge summaries," said Nancy Alton, neonatal nurse administrator. "As a major regional referral center, we discharge our patients to physicians from all over the state of New Mexico. We average 250 births each month, and we need the right tools to ensure that we are providing complete and timely information to the baby’s regular pediatrician. We are also excited about the potential of Daily Baby for helping manage care delivered by our medical residents and nurse practitioners. The system allows attending physicians to review and co-sign patient notes much more efficiently. Ultimately, we hope to link Daily Baby to our existing developmental care database." commented Ranate Savich, M.D., Director of Neonatology.
Daily Baby is one element within a suite of Site of Care’s data management applications for perinatal and neonatal health care providers designed to optimize clinical and financial outcomes, improve productivity and simplify data-driven clinical decision-making.
According to Site of Care CEO Gordon Romer, Daily Baby provides an integrated solution for busy neonatal care settings seeking to improve accuracy, save time, and enhance clinical quality. "With manual, handwritten systems, critical clinical information remains buried in the chart. Daily Baby allows clinicians to enter data once, and then access the data to generate a wide variety of standard and specialized reports".
Site of Care’s Vice President of Marketing, Julie Vilardi, RN, MS reflects, "Overall, the market for specialized data management solutions appears to be increasing, reflecting the growing demand by health care providers and regulatory agencies for granular, in-depth analysis of clinical care patterns. Our products are customized to match the language, processes and special considerations of maternal and neonatal care settings. You can’t achieve either the ease of input or the tailored output from systems that try to be all things to all clinicians."
