Collaborate to Integrate:
The Benefits of an Integrated Clinical Environment to Patient Care
Hospitals have dedicated tremendous resources to create an integrated clinical environment that results in better patient treatment and outcomes. Often, health IT projects either fall short of business and clinical goals or are completely abandoned at an astonishing rate. The failure to include direct-care clinical staff – including nurses and respiratory therapists – in the selection, evaluation, implementation and training of new technology cannot be overlooked.
A poorly implemented system can just as easily exacerbate inefficient workflows and reduce the overall quality of patient care. The lack of sufficient training and vendor support increases the risk of error and decreases the coordination of care. In addition, it encourages direct-care staff to either sidestep a new solution or outright revolt at go-live.
This webinar will describe the steps required to create teams that bridge the communication gap when deploying new technology. It will suggest methods of identifying and fostering internal champions, discuss the value of designing and implementing timelines that encourage vendors to remain engaged and productive, and discuss the value of identifying and fostering internal champions.
