Day Kimball Healthcare (DKH), announced a partnership with ObservSMART, a patient safety compliance system, to begin using its technology to ensure patient safety with validated observation compliance. ObservSMART is an innovative product from InvisAlert Solutions, which develops solutions to improve patient safety and quality of care for high-risk patient populations.
“We have made a commitment to patient safety, and ObservSMART will help our staff to manage patient observations better and ensure that our patients are safe,” said Kyle Kramer, Chief Executive Officer, Day Kimball Healthcare. “It also gives us better transparency with their robust reporting and customer success program, helping us drive best practice and evaluate performance, adding another dimension to our ability to care for our patient population.”
Designed by and specifically for behavioral health and substance recovery workflows, for patients in need of consistent monitoring, ObservSMART is a proximity-based system that syncs a patented, tamper-resistant wristband with a tablet to validate observations. The staff member needs to be within a certain proximity to the patient in order to complete their patient check. The ObservSMART App also provides real-time staff reminders to check on their patients. Leadership and other supervisors receive alerts for missed observations and additional safety concerns, allowing them to intervene in real-time, mitigating the potential of risk.
“We’re looking forward to working in partnership with Day Kimball Hospital to improve patient safety, staff communication, and accountability, providing the highest quality of care to their patients,” said Christopher Dunn, Senior Vice President with InvisAlert Solutions. “Our technology will complement the excellent standards of care already in place at Day Kimball Hospital and will help them in their quest to assist those suffering from behavioral health challenges.”
