AFAS: an effective real-time family notification system to connect physicians, patients and families during times of need.
Healthcare professionals have often heard the stories of providers delivering medical services that are not aligned with the patient’s desires or their family’s intent. The results of these stories bring grief to the family, as well as the facility’s and the provider’s credibility and reputation, frequently resulting in costly lawsuits. Today, the solution is here: the Automated Family Alert System (AFAS) by JTS. AFAS automates acute care notifications to authorized family members, enhancing communications between providers, patients and their loved ones. Using a powerful voice-command assistant, AFAS notifies family members of any changes in the patient’s condition. It integrates with existing EMRs to ensure the capture of patient data from an approved database record.
