Helping Hands during Hurricane Harvey

Sometimes we get caught up in the rigors of life, the stresses at work and the never-ending to-do list. But with the recent tragic events caused by Hurricane Harvey in Texas, we are reminded what is important – family, friends, health, and happiness. As a healthcare technology company supporting the everyday workflow and documentation of nurses and nursing leaders across the country, we have many friends and colleagues in the hurricane’s path and we wish them “Godspeed” and safety to start the journey back.

In early 2016 Duke Lifepoint Hospitals, Harris Regional and Swain Community, determined that they needed a solution to organize the leader rounds they perform on patients. Without a consistent and standard documentation process, patient feedback was difficult to aggregate and historical trending of the data was challenge. That year they partnered with Nobl to deploy a digital leader rounding tool across all inpatient units.
