Evidence-based clinical decision support pioneer to add Patient Problems – Body Systems for use by nursing staff
Online PR News – 17-March-2020 – Los Angeles, CA – Zynx Health™, market leader in providing evidence- and experience-based clinical improvement solutions since 1996, today announced that it has expanded its ZynxCare catalog to feature body systems content.
First introduced in 2005, ZynxCare provides healthcare organizations an easy-to-use solution to embed evidence-based interdisciplinary care plans in the EHR and manage the individual care needs of a patient. The ZynxCare catalog contains information for nursing and interdisciplinary teams addressing over 150 unique topics including rehabilitation-specific topics and over 300 unique care plans fueled by the latest medical and interdisciplinary evidence and Zynx Vital interventions.
Patient Problems – Body Systems is the latest content to be added to ZynxCare. The plans of care provide guidance to nursing staff on various body systems to address a variety of problems from both an evidence-based approach and a professional perspective.
The Patient Problems – Body Systems content provides indispensable care guidance that can be deployed during the initial comprehensive assessment at admission (when nursing diagnosis is identified), the shift assessment (when progress is evaluated), the focused assessment (when a patient’s condition changes).
The addition of Zynx Health’s care plans, organized by body systems, provides goals and interventions that result in greater alignment in the nursing workflow while saving time and reducing errors. “We developed our body systems care plans based on multiple client requests,” noted Nan Hou, PhD, RN, a managing editor with Zynx Health. “We are committed to continuously improving our content and content topic coverage in order to help our clients improve patient care.”
These new plans of care can be used before a patient diagnosis is determined and can be used alone or in conjunction with diagnosis/procedure care plans during the entire hospital and/or facility stay. New topics include:
• Behavior - Altered
• Bowel Function - Altered
• Cardiac Function - Impaired
• Growth and Development - Impaired
• Hydration and Nutrition - Altered
• Immune Function - Impaired
• Integumentary System - Impaired
• Metabolic Function - Altered
• Neurologic Function - Impaired
• Psychosocial Function - Impaired
• Respiratory Function - Impaired
• Urinary Function - Impaired
“Since the release of ZynxCare in 2005, Zynx Health has been dedicated to delivering the best care guidance for nurses and interdisciplinary team members. The addition of body systems content into our ZynxCare library adds a valuable layer of guidance to this key nursing product, providing nursing staff with trusted, evidence-based decision support to enable them to make better care decisions that ultimately improve patient outcomes,” said Chuck Tuchinda, president of Zynx Health.
The new content was released on March 15, 2020, and is now available to ZynxCare clients.
