PxID also allows patients to
  • Determine how members of care teams fit together (e.g., in departments and the structure of departments).
  • Contact caregivers for help (e.g., for questions, assistance, or other needful items like food or a pillow).
  • Access notes and other information that caregivers provide so that important information is not lost or misplaced.
  • Review a record of care.

Identifying caregivers

Building transparency in healthcare


Px allows patients and their families to focus on their care and makes it easy to understand treatment teams, the history and trajectory of care.
Patients should always be able to identify their care providers. Although this statement may sound like a truism (e.g., staff in hospitals wear ID badges), the fact is that modern care environments often depend on gathering insight and skill from a large number of professionals in different departments. Moreover, because staff can change over time (e.g., due to shift changes), it can be difficult for patients and their families to appreciate who is in (or has been in) their care team over time and what services those staff have provided. Thus, the complexity of modern care teams can be confusing to patients and their families, obscuring the focus from one’s care and introducing a tremendous ambiguity to the care environment.
It is axiomatic to PxID that patients and their families should be enabled to focus on their health and that the key to this is care team transparency. Although modern care environments can be quite sophisticated, patients and their families deserve better than struggling to comprehend their care teams or the nature of care over time. This is to say that patients and their families should always have a guide to their care teams and a clean record of their care over time — this is PxID.
There is a lot that ought to be said about the way that healthcare professionals serve patients and their families. For example, although it may be easy enough to figure out if a member of staff is a doctor, today there are many different types of doctors (e.g., M.D., D.O., N.D., etc.) and even doctors with different levels of training (e.g., intern physicians, resident physicians, senior resident physicians, attending physicians, etc.) and these distinctions are often challenging for patients and their families. Patients are sometimes distracted by trying to distinguish what kind of physician or other member of staff they have encountered in their care when they should be focused on their care with a clear understanding of which member of staff they have encountered over time and ultimately which members of staff are responsible for their care.
All too often, patients and their families tacitly accept a tremendous degree ignorance as to the identities, credentials and backgrounds of their care providers. PdID exists to alleviate these ambiguities in today’s care environment – i.e., to make the care environment clear and to thereby place the patient at the center of care.
Accordingly, PxID is an evolution in today’s care because it provides the patient with critical information about care providers – for example, using PxID, it is easy to determine the following for every member of staff:
  • Name
  • Department
  • Degrees
  • Education
  • Certifications
Moreover, using PxID, a patient will be able to look back on a record of care (over time) and determine:
  • Which member of one’s care team has served the patient.
  • The amount of time each member of a team has spent with the patient.
  • How each member of staff fits into a larger treatment team.
  • How each member of staff is accountable to other members of staff.
  • Every visitor who has visited the patient.
  • Information staff have provided to the patient.
  • When requests to staff have been submitted and when requests to staff have been answered (e.g., when a patient requests a blanket and when a blanket was delivered to the patient by a member of staff).
This is to say that PxID empowers patients by affording them the information that they deserve to have when establishing care, receiving care or reviewing a record of care. A patient who uses PxID will be better equipped to appreciate the nature of care and will be more satisfied because the patient will be able to perceive the professional relationships of the care providers in a care team.
Patients have a right to know everything about their care. PxID empowers patients by making this information all but effortless.

Px For Providers

Building transparency in healthcare


PxID allows greater ease for tracking and managing patient needs.
  • Patient requests are easily tracked.
  • Timeliness of response is observed.
  • Staff diligence is transparent to patients and management.
  • Staff diligence provides a clear record of service to patients and other staff – affording diligent staff a record upon which they may rely.
PxID provides a record of care that demonstrates actual time investment in patient care on a per-patient and a per-unit basis. This enables providers to better account for time spent caring for patients and to better predict future need. PxID provides a clean record of care for every member of staff.
PxID protects staff from unwarranted accusation by patients, staff or guests. Perhaps most importantly, PxID affords staff enhanced workplace security by enabling the real-time tracking of their locations in the event of fire, natural disaster or other hospital emergency.

About PX

Building transparency in healthcare


Parallax ID (PxID) believes that care should be transparent - i.e., that patients should always know who is in their care team, how team members fit together, what care has been provided and who provided the care.
PxID makes reaching out to providers easy for patients so that patient needs are always prioritized and never overlooked. Patients can optionally share information with family members so that following the course of care is easy for family members. When patients receive information from providers, PxID makes organizing and accessing this information effortless. Patients now have a single place where they can look for a record of care (including prospective appointments) and a single place where notes and directions for self-care and home-care can be organized.
PxID is also a tool for patient education by making the relationship between providers easy to follow (e.g., the difference between resident and attending physicians, technicians and nursing staff). For providers, PxID provides a clean record of care, helps to organize care teams and provides enhanced security to staff.
PxID is the future of care and the future of care is to place the patient in a position of knowledge, understanding and insight as to the nature of every care environment.
