Epiphany Observes National Nurses Week 2019

Posted by Allison Fawber on May 6, 2019 at 11:05 AM

nurses

 

During the week of May 6-12, Epiphany Healthcare would like to join the American Nurses Association (ANA) and many other organizations across the United States in observance of National Nurses Week 2019. Please join us in recognition of our 4 million registered nurses, as they dedicate themselves year round to the promotion and maintenance of our nation’s health.

Why Observe National Nurses Week?

  • Raise public awareness about the tremendous role that nurses play in the maintenance and improvement of American healthcare. We all know that nurses work diligently to provide us with superior care in hospitals, schools, and other healthcare facilities, but many may not see the important contributions nurses make as volunteers, researchers, educators, and advocates for a better healthcare system.
  • Nurses make up the largest of all healthcare professions and the profession is growing, in both number and in its capacity for leadership and responsibility as changes to the healthcare system allow nurses the opportunity to utilize more of their education and training than ever before.
  • Nurses are the most trusted professionals in America according to a national Gallup poll. The 2018 poll marks the seventeenth consecutive year that nurses have topped the list of trustworthy and ethical professionals.

How to Observe National Nurses Week

  • Know important dates associated with National Nurses Week to plan events accordingly, publish appropriate materials, or recognize individuals in a personal setting.
    • National Nurses Week begins on May 6th of every year and culminates on May 12th, coinciding with Florence Nightingale’s birthday.
    • May 8th of every year is recognized as National Student Nurses Day.
  • Plan an event in your community or workplace. Some possibilities include:
    • Host a celebration of current or retired nurses in your community.
    • Organize/sponsor a community wide contest that focuses on recognition of a nurse or nurses within the community.
    • Hold a fundraiser and donate the funds to a local charity in the name of a local nurse, group of nurses, or National Nurse Week.
    • Spread the word via press release, blog, advertisement, or any way that can make more people aware of National Nurse Week.
    • Show your appreciation by personally thanking nurses for all that they do. No matter who it may be, just let them know that you appreciate them. They will likely appreciate the recognition.
At Epiphany Healthcare, we understand the important role that nurses play in our nation’s healthcare system and we want to take this opportunity to thank them for their service. Our goal is to use our technology and service to help improve patient care just as nurses around the country and the world do every day.We thank you again, Happy National Nurses Week!

Patient Monitoring Workflow Streamlined With Epiphany’s New Rhythm Strip Management Solution

Posted by Allison Fawber on August 23, 2018 at 9:56 AM

If you scan rhythm strips into your EMR, you know this is a labor-intensive and costly process. Epiphany now offers the ability to automatically store rhythm strips from your central monitoring station in your EMR.

Rhythm_Strips_trash.pngEpiphany’s Rhythm Strip Management solution (RSM) takes rhythm-strip data in PDF format from the Philips Information Center (PIIC and PIIC iX) and automatically transfers the rhythm strips to the EMR as an unsolicited HL7 result. This is an elegant solution for the end user, considering the number of problems it solves for a hospital’s rhythm strip management workflow. 

At many hospitals, rhythm strip management workflow looks like this:

RNs and monitoring techs have to manually print, cut, and paste the rhythm strips; they often hand write a validation signature on those strips. Rhythm strips then have to be copied and scanned so that they can be viewed in the EMR. For those using a telemetry cockpit, complex workflows exist due to the volume of patients that are being monitored.

Epiphany’s RSM solution:

With Epiphany’s RSM, no more printing, pasting, or scanning is necessary. The costs associated with scanning and paper (thermal strip chart recorder or 8.5 x 11) are eliminated. The RN strip–validation process can occur in the EMR or in Epiphany. The rhythm strips are automatically transferred and quickly available in the EMR.  Epiphany’s RSM supports an unlimited number of rhythm strips per patient. Overall, after implementing Epiphany’s RSM, workflow is faster, accurate, and more efficient.

Ask for more information about this product and an Epiphany representative will contact you to discuss your rhythm strip management needs and review next steps.

3 Easy Ways to Make Your Hospital More Efficient

Posted by Shannon Richter on August 17, 2018 at 12:06 PM

Is the hospital you work for your home away from home?  Do you want your hospital to be the best it can be?  Do you see room for improvement but don’t know how to improve the efficiency of your hospital?

Most efficiency problems in any industry come down to one thing—communication.  The old saying, 'communication is the key to any good relationship,' also applies to the doctor/patient relationship.

If you can improve communication processes, you could cut costs while improving healthcare.  More fluid communication can reduce the time it takes for nurses and doctors to do their jobs.  More fluid communication allows doctors the ability to provide patients with more timely test results and care to reduce patients’ fear while waiting for the unknown.  

Here are three easy ways to streamline your hospital's communication and workflow.

Make Your Hospital More Efficient by Simplifying Your Cardiology Workflow

Epiphany’s Cardio Server ECG Management System

Leave paper and the delays in its processing in the past.  Epiphany's Cardio Server ECG Management System has an intuitive user interface and is IT friendly.  It allows you to pull up ECG data and other diagnostic test results from anywhere in the hospital.  You can view ECGs from an iPhone or iPad or leverage our new Cardio Server Mobile Application.  This digital access eliminates the need for paper copies.  A doctor can easily pull up results at the patient’s bedside with a touch of a screen.

Make Your Hospital More Efficient by Simplifying Your Pulmonary Workflow

Pulmonary Server

Epiphany's Pulmonary Server allows users to access, view, edit, and electronically sign pulmonary studies and other diagnostic test data from anywhere in the hospital, office, or home.  It streamlines communications and hospital efficiency by saving time and reducing labor costs.  Just look what it did for the Cleveland Clinic.

Make Your Hospital More Efficient by Going to Paperless Rhythm Strips

Rhythm Strip Management

Epiphany's Rhythm Strip Management provides a solution to the labor-intensive challenges of patient monitoring strip management.  The application eliminates paper and the time it takes to cut it, scan it, file it, and read it.  Again, paper belongs in the past.  Anyone with access can pull up rhythm strips digitally and instantly.  This instant access reduces time and streamlines communication.

More timely communication makes hospitals more efficient.  Using these three, or even just one of these solutions, will streamline your hospital's communication.  Healthcare technology such as these applications will significantly improve the care-delivery experience for both the doctor and the patient.

Schiller Malaysia to Distribute Epiphany Healthcare’s Cardio Server

Posted by Allison Fawber on May 14, 2014 at 10:47 AM

As a follow-up to dual execution of a distribution agreement between Epiphany Healthcare and Schiller Malaysia (along with 3 countries in Asia Pacific) in January 2014, Schiller Malaysia announced it will demonstrate live connectivity with its CARDIOVIT MS-2015 to Epiphany Healthcare’s Cardio Server during its Regional Sales Training in May 2014.  Schiller Asia Pacific’s marketing, sales, and support teams, together with Epiphany Healthcare, are now able to perform live demonstrations of the device connectivity, going far beyond receiving digital reports and raw data in an ECG management system.  Other advanced clinical features include bi-directional communications (modality worklists) and a direct, patient-data query that can now be demonstrated on the fly.  Epiphany Healthcare’s Cardio Server and Schiller’s MS-2015, and other Schiller devices, will provide valuable tools for diagnosing and treating heart disease.

“I think with this set of tools, the motivated and highly skilled team of Schiller Asia Pacific will be able to explain and demonstrate the real power and strength of our Cardio Server solution.  This will be a much more convincing and powerful tool than traditional slide shows.  Being able to demonstrate these capabilities ad hoc is the best proof that our companies, together, have the skills, knowledge, and resources to deliver excellent solutions to our customers.” said Thomas Lutz of Epiphany Healthcare.  Ho Foon Ngei, who leads the Schiller Malaysia team, stated, “Cardio Server has many desirable features.  It is an open-vendor, multi-modality, pure-web product.  With it and our Schiller devices, we will open the door to the customers widely.”
