Improving quality control requires a tool to measure quality continuously. Quality assurance in dialysis means a continuous process of defining target values for key indicators: to measure outcomes, interpret results, and intervene. This is done for individuals and groups of patients in center or network.
Data analysis drives effectiveness and efficiency in a dialysis clinic and Home HD patients.
Data must be contextual: relating gender, comorbidity, medical data, date, longitudinal and exact day. Data must be both aggregated and yet specific, so you can drill down in the same view from different perspectives (patient and clinic).
Chronic kidney disease patient care can be improved with the Therapy Data Management System. This integrated system allows more closely controlled patient care: to find insights into recent and past patient history; to get Lab data analysis; to report summaries; to track allergies; to follow medication lists, to check interactions and alarms of patients.
Time savings in administrative tasks of healthcare professional personnel leads to more patient comfort and less stress, particularly for nursing staff. This is realizable with software tools that support initial pre-setting of dialysis devices, automatic treatment documentation, automatic recording of the patients weight before, during and after dialysis, integration of peripheral devices and immediate, simple access to patient data for all users as well as an overview of the status of current treatments according to the principle “all information at a glance”.
Fresenius Medical Care’s Therapy Monitor (TMon) supports all of these requirements. It provides a solution for online documentation of various data collected before, during and after dialysis. The innovative bed-side monitoring is designed for advanced documentation on the 5008 and 5008S.
Nephrologist and nurses will benefit from time savings adopting software tools that support seamless communication, from the dialysis device to the hospital information system. Quick and effective processing of the documented data can be achieved in accordance with the principle “all information at a glance”.
Time saving for nephrologist and nurses is one of the many benefits that Fresenius Medical Care’s Therapy Support Suite (TSS) provides.
TSS is central clinical management software that carries out, creates and manages patient prescriptions, medication plans, documentation of treatment data, and patient-related laboratory data. Furthermore, TSS provides enhanced reporting capabilities and allows the professional management of a group of dialysis centers.
The Therapy Support Suite is part of the Therapy Data Management System.
