With VillageMD's patient rooming model and its comprehensive training program, you can trust that your patients will be consistently prepped prior to exams. So you can focus your time in the room taking care of your patients.
Our rooming model provides detailed instructions, best-practice process flows and key performance indicators, resulting in higher nursing quality, identification and closure of care gaps, and more physician-patient time. Rooming guidelines cover a spectrum of processes and patient types, including specific actions for vital sign measurement, diabetic rooming, and medication reconciliation to name a few.
It's unfortunate that blood presssure tests are not always done accurately or at the right time. Our rooming guidelines provide detailed instructions on how and when to properly take a blood pressure, when a repeat test is required and the process and tools required to monitor compliance.
For example: blood pressure measurement should be taken by the nurse or medical assistant at every patient visit. It is especially important for patients diagnosed with hypertension to assess control of their condition and to prevent development of other cardiac diseases. Additionally, blood pressure capture is an important element of quality measure compliance.
Our goal is to ensure that a repeat blood pressure is taken for all patients with an initial reading >= 140/90, so that there is an accurate and actionable measurement. We can then appropriately identify the patients that require additional medication adjustment, lifestyle or behavioral approaches, or assistance with addressing any barriers to care.
