It’s safe to say that your nursing staff is the most invaluable part of your medical team. They are the primary conduit to patient care delivery, patient satisfaction, and ultimately, the frontline of healthcare transformation. They deliver the best practice skills that keeps clinical operations functioning- even in the most extraordinary of circumstances. And we have witnessed many of those in the past year.
Therefore, the examination of how patient health data interoperability will affect the nursing capability is an important consideration.
The Aztech teams have performed hundreds of healthcare consulting engagements with various organizations. The one consistency that we have observed, is that there is a direct correlation between the operational efficiency of your nursing staff and the quality of patient satisfaction. When your nursing teams are staffed correctly and have what they need to deliver optimum patient care, it is reflected in patient sat scores.
What are some of the ways that the achievement of interoperability will affect your nursing staff?
- BETTER PATIENT ON-BOARDING PROCESS: One of the primary objectives of the MyHealth initiatives. Now all pertinent patient information will be accessible by all primary and referral services to streamline intakes, admissions, and processing.
- AUTOMATING TIME-CONSUMING MANUAL PROCESSES: We will shortly be publishing some case studies outlining the way manual processes can be automated through AI and other methods once IoP is achieved.
- EXPEDITING PRESCRIPTION PROCESS: Better communication and transparency between payers and providers to work more efficiently in the fulfillment of drug treatments and therapies.
- GREATER FOCUS ON PATIENT CARE: The Era of Interoperability will open many new avenues to patient care, including remote care and through the realization of efficiencies to allow more patient time.
