COMS Interactive, also known as Clinical Outcomes Management Systems, has launched the Outcomes Performance Achievement Leader (OPAL) Award program. The program is an extension of the company's focus on improving health care and clinical outcomes in the long-term care marketplace by leveraging Daylight IQ™, the COMS' flagship Disease Management Product Suite.
The OPAL Award program, which focuses on entities that have achieved superior clinical and financial outcomes, was launched by COMS with the purpose of recognizing top performers on a national basis. Award categories include clinical excellence, reduction in unnecessary hospital readmissions, growth in overall census and market leadership.
The Daylight IQ™ Product Suite facilitates improving quality of care by closely tracking changes in condition and initiating appropriate clinical interventions. Key components of the product suite include an Automated Disease Care Guide Library, a Dynamic Nursing Assessment and Compare Module, all of which work in conjunction with each patient's disease profile. It's important to note that utilizing Daylight IQ™ reduces 30-day hospital readmissions by 50% and premature mortality by more than 60%.
"We are pleased to shine a spotlight on clinical leadership," noted Edward J. Tromczynski, Chief Executive Officer, COMS Interactive. "It's no surprise that Welcov Healthcare was the first organization to earn this important award, given their thought leadership and advanced care methodologies in the long-term care industry."
