Get Rescued From Patient Documentation Overload

There is nothing more fulfilling than providing patient care and helping individuals on their road to recovery. Unfortunately, writing evaluations, progress notes, and discharge summaries are often a painful part to this rewarding career.

Now you can access more data and analytics on your patient performance in one place, making documentation more efficient. Let us introduce you to your Clinician Dashboard

Data Collection and Documentation Does Not Need To Be Time-Consuming

In my desire to give 100% of my attention to my patients, I’ve found it difficult to collect data during treatments without detracting from the sessions. This often results in rushed tallies on a piece of paper for each patient, and then trying to decipher these cryptic messages later when I sit down to write my notes  not the most effective means of documentation.

At Constant Therapy, we’ve heard this issue loud and clear from our clinician partners. And we want our tools to help you provide patients with better and more efficient care. So we did something about it.

Your Clinician Dashboard is Built to Optimize Documentation

The Constant Therapy app has always had automatic data collection and robust reporting features in the Reports tab of the app. One clinician, Bob D. said about the Reports tab, “I love the reports and analytics we get from the Constant Therapy app. An average clinician should save 30-45 minutes in paperwork time per patient visit due to the Constant Therapy app.”

Now there is a new and even easier easy way to access even more data and analytics in one central place. Introducing your Clinician Dashboard – a web-based platform that any clinician can log into from constanttherapy.com/dashboard with your username and password.

Built By Clinicians, for Clinicians, So You Know It Works

Your Clinician Dashboard has many added benefits for you and your patients. Here are 5 ways it can help:

1. Easier Than Ever To Use  View your patients’ progress quickly and efficiently, and incorporate into your documentation.
2. Stay Better Connected  Evaluate patient work between sessions, which supports better homework compliance.
3. More Easily Digestible Reports  Use as education tools with patients and caregivers  to demonstrate improvement or increased use of trained strategies.
4. Options For Deeper Data Dives  Leverage the Overview for a quick look, or you can take a closer look at patient performance.
5. Improved Performance Tracking  Access reports to help with tracking improvements over time  making it easier to report objectively on changes in performance within a given task, a given skill area, or in functional daily activities.

Get 5 Key Data & Analytics Elements at Your Fingertips

You can easily access all of your patients’ performance in one place. Let’s explore the five different areas of your dashboard.

1. Dashboard Homepage  Clinicians can get a quick overview of patients performance for their entire Constant Therapy caseload.  At-a-glance, they see in-clinic and at-home usage, as well as any patient status updates about their Constant Therapy programs.

Here, the clinician can see an expanded overview of a patient to view progress through cognitive, speech, and language skill areas, monthly activity, and their current home program.

2. Brain Fingerprint — Each cognitive, speech, and language domain a patient is targeting is mapped onto their Brain Fingerprint.  You can quickly view your patient's baseline and latest scores within each domain.

In this example, the patient's baseline score in Auditory Memory is 30.  As this individual progressed to more challenging Auditory Memory tasks, their Skill Area Score increased to 70.  Within the Clinician Dashboard, click Review Performance to view your patients’ progress.

3. Skill Area Scores — Take a deeper dive into the Brain Fingerprint.  Each Skill Area is comprised of a hierarchy of Constant Therapy tasks.

As a patient demonstrates mastery by succeeding in task with which they previously struggled, they are presented with more difficult tasks and their Skill Area Score increases.  Here’s an example from the Reading domain and the information to be found:

4. Therapies  Analyze patient performance within Constant Therapy tasks.  Here's an example examining a patient's progress in Auditory Command, Level 8.  The clinician can access baseline and latest data on accuracy, latency, and cues.

5. Assessments  View baseline and latest responses to this patient-reported outcome measure in which individuals can self-assess how they are doing in various activities of daily living. Here's an example:

Access Reporting Made For You

The Clinician Dashboard is here to support you and your patients. As always, we appreciate the valuable feedback we hear from clinicians so that we can continue to support cognitive, speech, and language therapy within sessions and for home programs.
