Telemetry Charge Nurse

Strip charting was a constant headache at our hospital. The manual printing and scanning process is of course labor intensive but the bigger issue is trying to get issues to bedside staff and providers faster from our tele techs to expedite intervention. And then there is the reimbursement issue. We had a change in our practices and staffing that was preventing the strips from even being scanned which HIM department quickly realized meant thousands in lost revenue. Automating the process for strip charting with Patient Hx is a game changer. Less manual workload, more money for the hospital, and more important than anything is reduced patient risk.”
