Automated Family Alert System (AFAS): an effective real-time family notification system to connect Hospital Healthcare Teams to primary care practitioners (as applicable), caregivers, and designated contacts during times of need.
AFAS is an innovative augmentation to your existing EHR Communications Plans and Processes whereby you and your healthcare team can ensure effective telephonic and text messaging within the 5-Right Communication Parameters:
- Right patient
- Right recipient
- Right sender
- Right time/ cadence
- Right Message / call back number
AFAS simplifies care notifications to authorized recipients, streamlining communications between providers, patients, and caregivers. AFAS can help to ensure that patient care plans are consistent with the stated goals for care. It integrates with existing EHRs to ensure the capture of a patient’s Primary Contact information, legal guardian, or legal next of kin, from an approved database record. Using a powerful voice-command assistant, AFAS notifies the designated, authorized recipient of a change in the patient’s status, in accordance with the Healthcare Team’s or caregiver’s intent.
