Registered nurses, with targeted training, are the secret weapon in the race for comprehensive care coordination. Accountable care organizations. Patient-centered medical homes. Value-based reimbursements. Bundled payments. Healthcare is experiencing a revolution brought on by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that aims to put patients squarely in the middle of all their clini­cal and financial decisions. Payers, including government agencies and insurers, are tying the quality and safety of patient care to reimbursements, making patient-centered care a necessity in all settings.

SDN helps organizations save money on networking infrastructure, reduces the complexity of managing networks, enhances security through added intelligence and simplifies compliance, among other benefits.

The evolving healthcare landscape has created a wealth of fresh opportunities for payers. There is a sense of urgency for payers in leadership roles to leverage technology and successfully transition to a value-driven healthcare system that rewards top performers and high quality standards. Passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) quickly changed many aspects of payers' business with higher costs, new oversight, more competition and a longer-term promise of millions of new members. Since healthcare insurance reform became law, opponents have vowed changes, if not its outright repeal. While it may be tempting to take as little action as possible and hope that the 2010 mid-term election or 2012 general election will make this all go away, the reality is that repeal is not a likely possibility.

With the right EHR in place, participation in health care quality management programs not only helps you provide great care to your patients, but can also help increase your bottom line. However, the rewards are only worth seeking if the cost—in time and money—of collecting and reporting data to these quality programs doesn't outrun the potential gain. This is where your EHR and the services provided by your EHR vendor can make a significant difference.

Poor quality of care takes a tremendous toll, not just on the system as a whole, but on the patients and their families at the center of that system. It also has a tremendous effect on employers, who already face unsustainable health care costs. When we evaluated one of our customer's claims, we found numerous signs of preventable complications that had cost our client significant amounts, not to mention the toll on the individual. Specifically, we identified the following preventable hospital- acquired conditions (HACs): • Fourteen instances of stage III and IV pressure ulcers • Twelve instances of vascular catheter-associated infections • Thirteen instances of catheter-associated urinary tract infections • One instance of a patient dying or experiencing a serious disability associated with intravascular air embolism • Five instances of foreign objects remaining in patients after a procedure. Please download the whitepaper to learn more!

Mobile devices help clinicians improve the quality of patient care and save lives by improving staff communication and collaboration, and by providing instant access to a wealth of mission-critical information — from real-time lab results to a change in a patient’s condition or verification of the “5 rights” of medication administration at the patient bedside. In addition, mobility also helps healthcare organizations comply with important governmental and regulatory safety standards, without tasking an already overburdened nursing staff with additional paperwork. This white paper provides guidance for planning and implementing a clinical mobility solution in today’s healthcare environment, including a five-step roadmap to help key stakeholders identify needs.
