  • There are a lot of articles and statistics on the internet touting how much money eLearning can save an organization. Does this hold true for EPIC implementations in healthcare? I would like to say the answer is simple but there are many factors to consider.

    There is an art to creating eLearning that engages the mind and critical thinking skills and increases retention. Unfortunately, a good majority of “eLearning” today in healthcare consists of automated PowerPoint slides that the participant can click through while multitasking. Clicking through a presentation typically does not really lead to “learning”. If you reduce seat time by keeping employees on the unit but they do not learn anything, have you saved money?

Think about it – a cost effective solution that would help streamline business processes and allow your staff more time to focus on other tasks.

    Hospitals are beginning to implement scripting in a variety of ways other than purely clinical. Wayne Memorial Health has been …

  • Is Your EDIS Solution Helping You Accomplish Both?

    Emergency departments (ED) are stressful environments by nature. And it’s no secret that whenever capacity is exceeded, for whatever reason, stress levels rise even more and chances for errors increase drastically. Quality, safety and efficiency are all effected when patients experience long waits. In fact, studies have shown evidence that ED crowding contributes to poor quality care.

    ED overcrowding and incoming traffic may be out of the hospital’s control, nevertheless, EDs must be equipped to deal with overcrowding and influxes in patient volumes. There are many proactive measures that an ED can take to increase its ability to handle these situations.

    The first step that will help facilities improve their ability to flex, is to implement a technology solution that allows them to track, measure and trend patient flow, such as an Emergency Department Information System (EDIS). Without a tool that gives you the abili…
