We will create a system which, through use of bar code technology, will facilitate requiredphysician reporting of physician visits in nursing homes. In addition to such facilitation, the system willprovide ongoing daily reports on physician visits as a means to reconciling these with mandated writtenreports. While purchase and use of the emergent system will be justified from a commercial standpoint,i.e., to save otherwise substantial losses associated with incorrect billing, it will be designed for use asa more general resident monitoring tool, as well. The technology -- and the database system -- will bedesigned to facilitate automated recording and reporting of who does what, for whom, when, and forhow long. Routine use of this system as a clinical and administrative supervisory tool will help to ensuredelivery of optimal care to nursing home residents.
