Root cause analysis.
Root cause analysis shows that handoff best practices are difficult to sustain.
With QUARC, MEDarchon has perfected the digital handoff process. Now you can have real-time clinical information to support handoff best practices and reduce preventable medical errors.
Culture of safety.
Lots of human effort at hospitals goes into promoting a culture of safety. QUARC can help.
The current “gold standard” for patient handoff is oral handoff at the bedside, utilizing a mnemonic based checklist (e.g. SBAR, i-PASS, etc.).
Unfortunately, these checklists are fairly rigid and do not take into account patient or clinician context. Clinicians do not always honor the process, which leads to preventable medical errors.
QUARC delivers a culture of safety by giving you ‘handoff in a pocket’. At a glance you have the patient’s location, medication information, care team collaboration messages, issue escalations and much more.
