TriageLogic announces a new name for its software designed specifically for office use: myTriageChecklistTM. This change is part of a larger rebranding effort to emphasize the company’s commitment to providing quality telephone triage products for private offices. “Patients need to receive the same high quality of care regardless of the person that
they speak to. myTriageChecklist ensures consistency of care.” says Medical Director and COO Ravi Raheja, MD.
myTriageChecklist provides a convenient and reliable, web-based solution for offices looking to increase their quality of patient care. Using Schmitt-Thompson, the gold standard for telephone triage, myTriageChecklistTM helps ensure that nurses ask the right questions and direct patients to the appropriate level of care with each call. Additionally, the software works with existing Electronic Medical Records systems, and can be accessed directly from the Internet without additional software.
As healthcare practices continue to strive for increased efficiency and cost-effectiveness, myTriageChecklist offers a convenient solution. By streamlining how nurses answer calls, the softwarehelps reduce healthcare costs. These procedures have been shown to decrease the number of unnecessary office visits, while ensuring that patients needing medical attention are properly directed. “As a physician, I know that my patients are better served when nurses give the same consistent, standardized high quality response to every patient that calls the office,”says an attending Pediatrician at Princeton Nassau Pediatrics, and a user of TriageLogic’s myTriageChecklist.
Checklists are becoming an increasingly necessary tool to ensure quality. “Modern medical care is a good example of how professional fields of expertise have developed in
recent years with the coming of the information revolution. Good checklists get the routine and obvious tasks out of your mind so you can instead focus on the hard stuff.”
