Technology Implements

Pillar Stone Health Care prides itself on being an industry front runner in the transition to a paperless platform. Through the use of a trustworthy and secure web based electronic health record or EHR we have found the efficiency and accuracy of care has presented us with limitless positive resident outcomes. We know in our ever changing industry, communication is the key to success both in the care we provide and the profitability of the facility. Communication is fostered amongst all allied health professionals involved in the resident’s plan of care because the web based EHR captures the resident condition in real time. Each member of the resident’s care team including, physical therapist, occupational therapist, speech therapist, Registered Dietician, physicians and their representatives, activities director, social services, psychotherapist, consulting physicians, all have access to the record at any time. Some at a glance benefits of the electronic health record implemented by Pillar Stone Healthcare include:

  • Incorporates all nursing documentation including skilled charting, assessments, care planning, Minimum Data Sets, resident baseline and real time vitals/statistics, and eINTERACT
  • Use of an EMAR or electronic medication administration record, nurses have immediate access to order changes without having to stop the medication pass and retrieve a paper chart from a nurses station, the chart is essentially right at their fingertips on the
    computer or tablet
  • Test results are uploaded into the resident record directly, radiology results uploaded immediately from the provider
  • Allows the direct care staff to accurately code activities of daily living at the Point of Care using this component of the electronic health record
  • No need for off-site storage or shredding of thousands of documents
  • Resident’s dietary needs are generated from the electronic health record

At Pillar Stone Health Care we value “The Golden Rule” and feel that it applies to not only the care of our residents, but also to the care of our environment. As we care for the generation that came before us it is our endeavor to safeguard our planet for the next generation. Part of our Eco-friendly plan at Pillar Stone Healthcare is to minimize waste, an antiquated paper heavy chart is waste. Through the use of the electronic medical record we are using significantly less paper and generating less waste. Medication waste is minimized by way of the EHR because medications are ordered directly from the pharmacy and medication delivery can be held sooner, thus minimizing the amount of drugs that must be destroyed.

With the proven comprehensive training program for transitioning to an electronic record developed by the team at Pillar Stone Healthcare we are able to provide assistance to any facility in this process. Our streamlined, straightforward approach can put each resident’s chart at the tips of your fingers.
