The Safe Balance Technology...

The Safe Balance program and technology was developed to be a comprehensive solution to the medical provider in the prevention of patient falls.

 

Using a lightweight app-based or web-based platform that runs on tablets or computers, Safe Balance runs patients through a series of questions and performance measures that are inputted into the system. From there, the Safe Balance program automatically calculates the results and generates a patient-specific intervention plan to mitigate the risk factors identified. 

 

Utilizing the screening and assessment design found in MIPS Quality Measures, and the workflow of the CDC's STEADI Program, the Safe Balance program has emerged as an effective and incredibly efficient instrument for use in almost all areas of healthcare.

During the initial part of the encounter, the patient is administered a screening questionnaire delivered via tablet or paper. This risk screening focuses on background information, specifically prior fall history, incontinence episodes, pain levels, medications, living environment, et. 

From here, the risk screening results highlight some important information laying the groundwork on risk factors identified impacting the patient's conditions or functional independence level.

Step 1: Screen for Fall Risk Factors

In the exam room, simple performance tests are performed specifically targeting standing balance, ambulation/gait, and strength. These final metrics are added into the software and combined with the risk screening. 

At the conclusion of this step, a report is generated based on the results from the screening data and performance metrics. This report not only highlights the risk factors identified, but calculates specific intervention pathways to mitigate those risks based on severity.

Step 2: Assess to Quantify Severity

On the report, ICD-10 codes are created/suggested, risk factors are identified, educational material is generated and recommendations for prescribed referrals/interventions are presented. The provider can then quickly read this assessment result and place proactive measures in place to manage these risks that could otherwise have caused a future fall. 

The documentation is quickly and easily placed into the patient's electronic medical record and is stored in the Safe Balance cloud for future retrieval at a later date if necessary.
