New Halo feature lets you see chart details within the app
Patient-centric messaging is the latest tool from Halo, which gives staff the ability to connect patient chart details to a Halo message. You can soon skip the work of typing out a patient’s medical record number, date of birth and room number. With patient-centric messaging, these details can be pulled into a Halo message just like an attachment.
After a patient has been admitted, the location and demographic information will appear in the Halo patient list. Search this list to find and attach a patient to a conversation or add the patient to your personal Halo list for follow-up and easy reference.
Select hospital departments go live with the new tools on March 1. There is a short training video available on ALEC (HealthStream) on how to use Halo PCM. Just search for “Patient Centric Messaging” or click here to learn more.
Review the Halo Patient-Centric Messaging Tip Sheet to learn step-by-step instructions.
Be sure to watch for attached patient details in your Halo conversations beginning March 1. For questions regarding Halo PCM, contact [email protected].
If you need answers for a personal work matter, please contact the author or department directly.
