Retrieve GED Assessment
Emergency departments are the gateway for healthcare for most seniors – 1 of every 3 elderly patients are admitted each day. Is your ED staff prepared for them? Retrieve GED is!
As the older adult population increases in the U.S., we are challenged with how to better serve their unique healthcare needs. Increasingly, Geriatric emergency departments (GEDs) are being added to the regular emergency department to address this need
Annually, there is nearly one ED visit for every two older Americans. Older adults also are at increased risk for serious complications in the ED compared to younger people. Additionally, ED environments, which are often characterized by bright lights, fast pace of activity, and loud noises, can be disorienting to older adults and potentially interfere with the effectiveness of care.
Retrieve Medical has introduced a Retrieve GED assessment which can improves geriatric ED productivity by using the latest technology to make an ED physician’s work more productive for senior-care. Retrieve GED ensures the most accurate clinical protocols for documentation while helping teams more effectively monitor risk assessments in seniors.
When ER clinicians screen older patients to determine their frailty, risks of falls or delirium, or check prescriptions against criteria for potentially inappropriate medication use in older adults, it’s a chance to safeguard their health in the moment and later at home. Retrieve GED is an innovative program enabling CAPD (computer-assisted physician documentation) so doctors can document patient interactions easily, quickly and more thoroughly and be alerted to possible comorbidities and medical issues.
