Preempting adverse health events
Adverse health events are insidious. They hide in the margins of workflow inefficiencies, untenable costs, and poor outcomes. But if healthcare stakeholders are to uproot and resolve concerns like falls, infections, and errors, they have to know when incidents take place, and more importantly, identify the preventable events leading up to them.
But challenges stand in the way. Quality improvement initiatives are siloed and may lack access to the latest evidence-based information and clinical support. In addition, clinician trainings and competencies stand to upskill staff on safe and effective patient care, but they too require standardization that many facilitates may not have.
Additionally, controlling for adverse events becomes more nuanced outside the clinical setting. Reduced line-of-sight into patient medications and follow-up appointments can make adverse event management harder to predict.
Combined, these concerns not only risk patient safety, but they also complicate administrators’ efforts to track and report events for Magnet certifications, compliance, and other areas. Now more than ever, systems need efficient and integrated workflow tools to break down these clinical and operational barriers. With alerting, data management, systemized trainings, and competencies, we’re ready to help you deliver the best care everywhere.
