PHILADELPHIA, May 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — ObservSMART, a patient safety compliance solution, announced today that St. Charles Parish Hospital (SCHP) has recently started using its technology to ensure patient safety while reducing risk, errors, and costs. An easy-to-use observation tool, ObservSMART is an innovative product of InvisALERT Solutions, developed to improve patient safety and overall quality of care for high-risk patient populations.
SCPH is in Luling, Louisiana, and is an acute care facility serving residents of the community and the surrounding areas since 1959. At the hospital, ObservSMART is used in behavioral health units replacing traditional paper charting during rounding which occurs every 15 minutes. SCPH is managed by Ochsner Health. In 2014, the partnership with Ochsner Health established the sharing of best medical practices and the implementation of advanced technology, resulting in improved quality, expanded access to care and reduction in medical costs.
“ObservSMART offers an additional level of safety for our patients and medical staff members. With the technology, randomized rounding is captured in real-time, enhancing the efficient high-quality care offered at SCPH,” said Keith Dacus, Chief Executive Officer, St. Charles Parish Hospital.
