What Early CG-CAHPS Results and Data Are Telling Us

patient safety white paper What Early CG-CAHPS Results and Data Are Telling UsHealthStream, leading patient survey vendor for over 750 hospitals, has collected a large sample of CG-CAHPS survey results from physician offices over the last three years. The survey data identifies clear trends in how patients perceive the care they are receiving from their providers. Specifically, the data illustrates that how well a provider communicates in the exam room has ramifications on the patient’s overall impression of the practice.

Because national CG-CAHPS scores are trending on a tight curve like HCAHPS, providers will need to receive high marks on surveys just to reach the average at the 50th percentile, nationally. It’s time for all providers to develop a patient experience strategy.

CJPS Medical Systems announced that VitalPoint® HOME, its remote patient monitor, can be used with Microsoft Windows® - based Tablet PCs.

CJPS Medical Systems announced that VitalPoint® HOME, its remote patient monitor, can be used with Microsoft Windows® - based Tablet PCs. This announcement comes on the heels of CJPS being the first company waiving all connectivity fees to caregivers accessing their patients' data remotely using home monitors.

Typically, nurses and doctors have been using their desktops or laptops to view their patient data using VitalPoint® HOME, which has been designed to be the easiest system to use anywhere - Not just for the patients, but also for the caregivers monitoring their health. This newest development makes it even easier for nurses and doctors to pick up patients' reported symptoms and vital signs data from anywhere. All existing VitalPoint® HOME units that have been sold in the field are already capable of such connectivity, and all that needs to be purchased is a Microsoft Windows® - based Tablet PC, and then download VitalPoint® HOME Remote Device Connectivity® software from CJPS.

With facilities looking to upgrade to easier-to-use, and more modern and reliable remote patient monitors to reduce their readmission rates, improve health care delivery, while trying to keep up with a sharp increase in older, chronically-ill patients, this unique offering could not come at a better time.

In spite of large name competitors, CJPS continues to gain market share thanks to breakthrough industry firsts such as never charging connectivity fees, trading-in existing remote patient monitors and now, providing true mobile health care to home patients. This disruptive industry transformation, driven single-handedly by CJPS, and coupled with the state-of-the-art VitalPoint® technology, contributed greatly to the large national contracts recently won by the company.

VitalPoint® is a standalone 4.5-lb device that can monitor blood pressure, blood oxygen saturation, pulse rate, weight, glucose level, prothrombin time and ratios, temperature, fluid status, and provide electrocardiogram data, and provides the caregiver with the ability to remotely monitor patients' conditions using their laptop or cell phone.
