A pilot project was established, with government funding, to enable health care workers caring for residents with pressure injuries to access evidence-based nursing order sets embedded within PointClickCare. The order sets, which were comprised of evidence-based nursing assessments and interventions to support optimal wound healing, were built as User-Defined Assessments.
The project involved multiple nursing homes in a large multi-site organization. Using PointClickCare Analytics enabled the sites to monitor their progress in real time. In each of the sites there was marked reduction in the incidence of pressure injuries post-implementation.
This presentation provides details concerning the implementation approach and highlights tips and tools to optimize use of PointClickCare in health care delivery.
