The Torrance Memorial Transitional Care Unit (TCU), a unit of Torrance Memorial Medical Center (Torrance Memorial), a general medical and surgical hospital in California, has selected COMS Interactive’s Daylight IQ product suite as a key component of its disease management programme.

The Daylight IQ product suite, which features a series of integrated, disease-based clinical protocols, is designed to improve quality of care by tracking changes in condition and initiating appropriate clinical interventions.

These clinical protocols help empower the entire clinical team by identifying changes in condition at the point of care itself thereby reducing unnecessary hospital readmissions.

Additionally, Daylight IQ highlights abnormal findings and provides the clinical team with appropriate interventions and/or physician communication to address potential additional health challenges.

COMS Interactive CEO Edward J Tromczynski said the team at the Torrance TCU continues to expand its significant clinical expertise.

"The Daylight IQ product suite is designed to improve quality of care by tracking changes in condition and initiating appropriate clinical interventions."

"Given the organisation’s thought leadership, it’s no surprise that Torrance Memorial and its IPA have successfully developed a leading accountable care organisation and participate in the Bundled Payment Initiative for joint replacements," Tromczynski added.

The Daylight IQ suite comprises an Automated Disease Care Guide Library, a Dynamic Nursing Assessment and Compare Module, all of which work in conjunction with each patient’s disease profile.

Market information indicates that the average skilled facility patient has a complicated disease profile, with one primary disease and up to eight secondary diseases, while over 70% of re-hospitalisations are due to the worsening of secondary or new diseases.

As early detection of an individual’s change in condition is made possible by Daylight IQ, caregivers can take timely action and prevent further progression of the illness.

Additionally, hospitals can reportedly reduce 30-day hospital readmissions and premature mortality by more than 50% by implementing Daylight IQ.
