24 Oct New Gaia Functionality & Features

As you may have heard, Gaia recently released significant enhancements to our dialysis specific EHR with awesome new functions and features. Below are some highlights of what is new in Gaia.

Patient Portal

This web-based portal was designed specifically for dialysis patients to provide access to their treatment information, at any time, with the click of a button. Patients and family members can now easily log into the fully customizable patient website to review important clinical data and treatment trends. With this tool, patients are empowered to be more involved in their overall health and quality of life

Data on Demand

This incredible new tool delivers hundreds of patient data points to the caregiving team in a single data set or form.  These numerous data export forms display annual QIP scoring data for easy trending and monitoring, provide the foundational data points for a comprehensive QAPI program, gives timely access to Core Survey Data and much more, all at the push of a button.

Inpatient / Acute Module

 Gaia's inpatient charting system bridges the communication gaps by providing an easy and succinct place for documenting acute dialysis treatments, in sequence with chronic treatments, within the Gaia outpatient EHR software program to maintain continuity of care. 

RN Evaluation Module

This newly revamped module allows users to build custom note entry templates.  Administrators can now ensure nurses have the patient treatment data required to review, and the ability to address, specific individual patient occurrences and outcomes. Some templates are more general in design, and others are more specific such as home charting assessments and office visit encounters, and all allow full customization! 

Dashboards

Gaia has created multilevel Facility/Organization Dashboards to analyze Treatment Ultrafiltration Rates ("UFR"). Additional dashboards, targeted toward dialysis specific topics (i.e. Facility/Organization Ultrafiltration Rates, Anemia Management, Accesses, Bone Mineral Metabolism, etc.), will be provided in future releases to provide a dynamic overview of organizational, facility-specific, or individual patient-level data.  This UFR Dashboard framework allows administrators to see what percentage of all treatments are exceeding the UFR threshold of >13.
