“I work with a client with diabetes who has been hospitalized a few times over the past year. Rochester RHIO has helped tremendously. His last hospitalization happened a couple of months ago. He was transported by ambulance to RGH. I received alerts almost immediately about his condition. I was able to see labs that were being drawn in real time as well as imaging results, any testing that was happening and admission and discharge documents  I was able to call my client's mother with information within a very short period of time and keep her informed almost daily as to his current condition. It is an amazing tool for us. Thank you!”
~ Allison Dills, LPN Healthcare Coordinator, Lifespan
“I find Rochester RHIO to be very helpful. The alerts prevent delays in good follow-up care. Recently, I was notified by RHIO that my client was brought into Unity Hospital. I was able to see him the same day he was brought in. The client's family didn't know he was there, but I was able to notify them while on my way to the hospital. When I arrived, my client was surprised I was notified and already there. He very grateful that I arrived so quickly. I was able to give the hospital staff tips on how best to support my client as he is blind and does things a bit differently. He told me that his hospital stay was better as a result. I was able to get his lab work and see what the outcome of some procedures were through the RHIO. He is now stable and recovering at home.”
~ Melanie Jones, LPN, Lifespan
