Johns Hopkins Fall Risk Assessment Tool Now Available in MatrixCare

MatrixCare is the Only LTPAC EHR with Embedded Clinical Decision Support

August 10, 2015

Bloomington, MN – MatrixCare®, provider of the industry leading EHR for long-term care and senior living providers, today announced that the Johns Hopkins Fall Risk Assessment Tool aimed at preventing falls is now available in MatrixCare. Clinical Coachâ„¢, MatrixCare’s clinical decision support module, features the Johns Hopkins content which was developed as part of a fall risk safety initiative and has been licensed by over 100 hospitals worldwide.

John Damgaard, MatrixCare President and CEO, commented, "Clinical decision support embedded directly into EHR workflows will be critical for long-term care providers to leverage clinical resources to provide consistent, quality care for the growing population of seniors. Running "parallel systems" with overlapping clinical workflows or partially electronic / partially paper approaches are not viable solutions as they introduce the potential for errors in data entry, decrease staff efficiency, and add unnecessary costs. We are pleased to make the Johns Hopkins Fall Risk Assessment tool available to the MatrixCare community. MatrixCare Clinical Coach and Clinical Guardian are the first and only evidence-based decision support tools built into an LTPAC EHR to reduce costs and re-hospitalizations, mitigate risks, and, more importantly, provide superior care and better outcomes."
