Whitepaper: Solving the Actionable Data Challenge in Long-Term Care Infection Prevention
Solving Infection Prevention in Long-Term Care
Healthcare often epitomizes the “data rich, information poor” conundrum. Our industry certainly has an abundance of information – but some providers still fail to derive timely, standardized, actionable insights from it. One of the areas where this is most pronounced is in long-term care (LTC) facilities.
In many cases, LTC facilities are still using paper records and low-tech means of capturing information and coordinating patient care. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the digital divide between acute care and the long-term care setting, and the perils of care in sites without strong clinical surveillance. As a result, it’s become clear that long-term care facilities need robust, clean and actionable data to better control infections and ensure quality care for some of our most vulnerable community members.
