Welcome to COMS Interactive and Daylight IQ®

Daylight IQ is the first healthcare delivery system based upon disease management, clinical outcomes measurement and performance improvement for long term care residents.

Daylight IQ® is the first healthcare delivery system based upon disease management, clinical outcomes measurement and performance improvement for long term care residents.

Nursing facilities find it difficult to manage residents who have multiple acute and chronic diseases. Unfortunately, this translates into declining health for elderly residents and an increased rate of hospital re-admissions.

Daylight IQ® helps address the national trend of escalating hospital re-admissions from nursing homes, from which nearly 30% of skilled residents are re-admitted.

 

  • Address more than 85% of chronic diseases that lead to re-hospitalization
  • Increase skilled bed occupancy by up to 87%
  • Reduce resident re-hospitalization by 50%

 

Clinical Care Reminder - COPD

COPD is a chronic, progressive and irreversible destruction of lung tissue, characterized by airflow obstruction, that compromises lung function.

  • COPD diseases include: Emphysema, Chronic Bronchitis
  • Fourth leading cause of illness, hospitalization and death

Signs and Symptoms May Include:

  • Recurrent, productive cough
  • Progressive dyspnea, SOB
  • Prolonged expiration
  • Decreased pulse Ox
  • Hyperexpanded, fixed chest
  • Pursed lips; abdominal breathing, distant breath sounds
  • Inspiratory crackles

What We Can Do:

  • Maintain a high "index of suspicion"
  • Know resident’s baseline level, changes and trends in assessment of:
    • Lungs and Resp. pattern
    • Vital Signs: Increased HR, Increased RR
    • Expect superimposed infection Increased Temp
    • Pulse Oximetry: decreasing pO2
    • Physical, functional and psychosocial status
  • Evaluation of respiratory system
  • Oxygen
