Managing patient pain levels and the associated documentation is crucial for compliance standards and the patient's satisfaction. The GetWellNetwork Pain Management Pathway provides an efficient workflow to manage pain assessments, improve documentation and is recognized by the Joint Commission as a “best practice for pain management.”
Automating the workflow can eliminate hundreds of nurse hours at your facility. For many hospitals, traditional pain management workflows are time consuming and inconsistent. Often times, nurses revisit the patient after administering medication to reassess pain levels and then manually document the process in the patient’s medical record. The Pain Management Pathway ensures that the patient’s pain is assessed within an hour, as required by the Joint Commission standards, eliminates the need for nursing to manually document pain assessments, and avoids unnecessary trips to the patient’s room when they are not in pain.
