WinterGreen Research announces that it has a new study on Long Term Care and Nursing Home Information Systems: Market Strategies, Shares, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2010©2016. Long term care and nursing home information systems create ways to treat patients in long term care facilities more efficiently. The study has 253 pages and 93 tables and figures.

New long term care information systems have revolutionized the market, creating units that work across the board in long term care situations. This evolution of the software means that clinicians have more flexibility of care decisions, caring for people.

Information systems are emerging as a significant part of the nursing home and long term care delivery systems. All facilities have some kind of automated systems, but this study addresses the industry specific systems that are evolving with industry specific financial management and process integration. Software leverages the efficiency of clinical process in ways that have never become possible before. The electronic patient record can be integrated with financial systems, increasing the efficiency of transmitting services description to the insurance providers.

The ability to capture services delivery electronically at the point of care is central to creating more efficient infrastructure for the providers. The system leverages virtually all the administrative and financial information needed to run a successful home care company. Information can be gathered right from the charts.

The significance of integration systems is not yet realized in nursing home information systems. Collaboration and electronic patient records promise to drive the efficiencies gained from electronic records in to the clinical delivery process, giving caretakers more time to spend with patients. As patients move from one care venue to another, the patient record is going to need to move with them. The hand©held, computerbased system guides home care clinicians through the entire patient care process. Clinicians can use structured record guides. The systems automate reporting.

The fundamental aspect of long term care and nursing home information systems implementation relates to patient treatment flexibility. The ability to be responsive to changing patient conditions is central to the task of controlling nursing home and skilled nursing facility costs. The ability of systems to support flexibility in managing patients to lower cost care delivery sites is anticipated to spur rapid growth of the electronic patient record for these facilities. Long term care and nursing home information systems markets at $225.8 million in 2009 are anticipated to reach $674.9 million by 2016.
