How Deaconess Nurse Ministry Used Case Management Software to Get More Grants
Deaconess Nurse Ministry, a healthcare nonprofit that connects seniors and low-income adults in St. Louis with RNs who travel to provide on-site consultations, was facing a dilemma. Because their nurses work remotely, securely accessing and maintaining up-to-date data on the community members they serve was a challenge. They needed a tool with strong capabilities for mobile case management for nonprofits.
The solution? The mobile-friendly Apricot Core! According to Donna Smith-Pupillo the nonprofit’s Executive Director, “the ability to have remote access that’s secure is really important. With Apricot, we are able to truly say that working with this client on this particular issue has resulted in this improved clinical outcome. Using Apricot with hot spots for the nurses in the field allows them access to records, so they can see what the clients have been doing over time. This enhances the education of the client as the nurse is able to say where the client started and where the client is now.”
A Holistic Approach to Health and Data
Delivering better service to clients is what it’s all about for Deaconess Nurse Ministry, and Apricot Core is their case management tool of choice for making data part of that improved service delivery. But there are more benefits to this organization’s system for mobile case management for nonprofits. “We have seen an increase in our ability to get grants because we are able to show what we are doing and how it has increased the health of the clients we serve,” says Smith-Pupillo.
