The Next ERA in Fall Prevention

Electronic health record integration

The patient’s fall risk factors and scores auto-populate in the medical record. Risk factors integrate with the nursing and medical problem list and link to evidence-based interventions and care plans.

Risk factors that matter

The patient’s fall risk is assessed using risk factors that have been proven to be valid in well-designed studies of large, diverse populations.

Assessment and care plans

Each fall risk factor links to evidence-based interventions and cross-continuum care plans. This way, you can support your patient’s safe mobility and health goals, while also reducing fall risk.
