The knowledge and network of our specialist publishing house for medicine and nursing is the basis for the extension of our competence fields to a consulting partner for healthcare facilities.
The trade name RECOM is no longer just for specialist books and instructional media, but especially for comprehensive consulting services in the field of interdisciplinary and interprofessional IT solutions with the goal to implement paperless documentation of care and treatment processes in the institutions.
One thing has remained the same over almost 30 years: the focus of our daily work are innovative concepts and ideas for the staff in healthcare institutions. For them, we create an increasingly efficient IT environment for today's realities through our own research and development.
With our departments of nursing and interprofessional research, as well as software development we combine specialist know-how with the requirements of healthcare to an intelligent knowledge management.
Current specialist knowledge linked and integrated into our software solutions combines scientific progress with the daily demands of professional practice.
In order to optimize the processes for each sector, we address the special needs arising from medicine, nursing and the care for dependent people.
Based on the development of classification systems, such as ENP (European Nursing care Pathways), we work out consistent strategic concepts for you for the integration into IT systems of today and tomorrow. The developed classifications as well as our software solutions are designed for the cross-sectoral use – with the goal of data exchange between the different occupational groups
RECOM has begun to think about how to integrate knowledge very early – especially current technical knowledge in the area of nursing care – into practice and the work processes. Our awareness that the use of IT in healthcare is highly complex and it is not enough just to develop individual modules for each professional group matured already in the mid-90s.
Today we say that the implementation of an electronic patient and resident record can only succeed, if the standardization of information as well as the use of terminologies/classifications will be advanced.
Our approach is the consistent use of vocabulary, the support of healthcare stakeholders through "best-practice" information and the illustration of electronic workflow processes. And this always under the premise that the human being and his/her treatment and care determines the electronic workflow processes.
We face the challenge that the electronic record RECOM-GriPS has to bring together the professional groups, and not separate the healthcare sectors at the same time. All sectors have to be included into the information process to achieve an efficient and safe treatment and care of patients and residents.
Based on almost 30 years of experience in specialist literature for nursing and healthcare our field of competence has become increasingly specialized. Over many years, RECOM stood for continuing education and training in nursing and medicine.
From the area of continuing education emerged a number of pioneering impulses for the development and professionalization of nursing. Furthermore, many expensively produced textbooks for continuing medical education have been published.
With the publication of Fiechter and Maier's "Nursing care planning (Pflegeplanung)", RECOM has demanded that nursing should be planned and carried out in a structured way already in the 80s. As the only publisher we have initiated the debate on nursing theories also in the 80s and delivered the first translations from the English language region.
Our current programme contains educational literature, titles on nursing reimbursement, as well as reference works of nursing classifications for nursing and geriatric care.
As a specialist publisher with the focus on nursing science and nursing practice we are committed to the further professionalization of nursing and initiate the debate on the use and implementation of nursing diagnoses with our titles.
