Kristus Darz Retires Paper for Electronic Patient Records

SYGNET and Intel bring electronic patient records to residents’ bedsides

Challenge
• A move into increasing electronic patient records challenged Kristus Darz Retirement Home, whose rural location and unreliable wireless connectivity limited its ability to leverage online tools from all corners of the facility.

Solution
• Secure Wireless Delivers Mobility: Managed service provider, SYGNET Systems, implemented a comprehensive wireless network that opened up the home’s ability to deliver bedside electronic documentation of patient care on cart-mounted HP Elitebooks* powered by Intel® Core™ i5 vPro™ processors.

Impact
• Personal care staff enter resident care data immediately on Intel Core i5 vPro processor-based HP Elitebooks, eliminating transcription of handwritten notes, while improving accuracy of ministry reporting that drives the home’s funding.
• With Intel® vPro™ technology, SYGNET Systems resolves IT issues remotely saving hours of costly commuting time while reducing downtime.

Kristus Darz Latvian Home in Woodbridge, Ontario, is a long-term care home providing 24 hour nursing care to 100 residents. With an industry move towards electronic patient records (EMR), unreliable wireless access was hampering Kristus Darz’s ability to more fully leverage its investment in its EMR software, PointClickCare*.
