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%
