Abstract:
Improving the Patient Care Environment with Desktop Dashboards for Nurse Managers
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:Santos, Susan
P.I. Institution Name:Children’s Mercy Hospitals and Clinics
Unlike other industries, healthcare has relied on old information to base quality improvement initiatives. In essence, the state of the art has not kept pace with the state of the problem. Multiple factors work in concert to produce a system that allows healthcare workers and patients a safe environment in which to serve and be served. Currently, there is no technology that brings all these factors together in real-time by which data-driven clinical and system decision making can take place. Investigators from a freestanding pediatric institution in the Midwest, have created software that would overcome these impediments. It allows managers and executives to simultaneously view datasets empirically linked to outcomes in order to determine if relationships exist. Datasets include but are not limited to staffing, medical errors, employee accidents, and patient satisfaction. There can be no real progress in improving the patient care environment unless we implement technology that can generate reports similar to fiscal reporting capabilities. This work will allow us to make broad stroke improvements in patient and employee safety, therefore increasing overall quality; an advancement the industry desperately needs.
