Abstract:
Problem: Health care organizations need to re-design their care delivery systems to assure the provision of the best and safest patient care possible. One method of accomplishing this is to establish inpatient standards of care with measurable outcomes, developed with input from patients and families. Standards Development: Our organizations leaders charged multidisciplinary workgroups led by physician and nurse leaders to develop strategies to strengthen our patient and family centered care environment. These interdisciplinary work groups developed and then implemented fourteen standards of excellence for our inpatients meeting the goals of the organizations leadership. The fourteen standards of excellence were driven from current inpatient satisfaction results and literature supporting patient and family centered care environments. The focus of the standards was to provide high quality, safe and evidence based care. Each standard has defined goals, tactics and outcome measures. Once the standards were developed they were presented to key stakeholders including patient and family advisory groups for their endorsement. This process resulted in many critical revisions of the standards eventually making them truly driven by patient and families. Implementation Once the standards were finalized, all patient care providers were educated on each initiative and the strategic tactics and the outcomes that would be measured to analyze impact on patient care. Outcomes: Outcomes used to measure the standards of excellence impact include; improved patient satisfaction scores (HCAPS), improved compliance with Joint Commission National Safety Goals, and Core Measures. Continual analysis of these outcomes is improving our patient and family centered care environment.
