Success Stories

“Like most organizations that provide 24-hour service to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, Lifespire was finding it very hard to find RN's who were willing to provide 24 hour on call duty. A secondary concern is that in many instances we suspected that the RN's who were providing on call services were sending our clients to the Emergency Rooms or Urgent Cares because they worried that if they did not send a person, that their decision would be "second guessed" by the regulatory entities that oversee our operations. The fact that an ER physician is making the decisions including diagnosis and treatment plans about whether and individual should be taken to an ER has significantly reduced the number of "unnecessary" trips to the ER and has resulted in overall savings to my organization. Additionally, UCM has the ability to electronically connect with our pharmacy. If someone needs medication, UCM can immediately prescribe the medication and pharmacy can deliver to the residential site very quickly. My nurses love the system and my staff feel very comfortable the they are getting professional medical advice from a physician. I would highly recommend UCM to any organization that is providing 24 hour care to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.”
