20 QUESTIONS??

21 Now What? Getting Real Time Information to the Nurse! Data, Data, Data....Real? Timely?

22 Real Time Information and Outcomes Questions to Consider?  How do we use the information we now have to assist the nurse at the bedside?  How do we improve outcomes with real time data?  Can real time data really improve nursing efficiencies? Right staff, right patient, right time!  How does the capture of right information for quality also benefit staffing mix and identify patient acuity?  Does IT really help improve patient safety?

23 Information at the Bedside  TOO MUCH! TOO LITTLE! Vital Signs Medications Equipment Diet Care Plans Teaching Needs Pain Assessments

24 Data and Outcomes can be Married!  Assessment design to collect complete information  Reminders  Lab information at time of medication delivery  Protocols built into the system  Documentation links directly to care plan and teaching plan

25 Efficiencies Can Be Seen

26 Staffing and Acuity  How can real time information identify patient acuity? Measures of acuity include:  Total care  Restraint usage  Monitored patient  Ventilator patient  Fall risk precautions  Blood administration  Multiple IV  Pediatric patients

27 Staffing Effectively  Staffing for activity and workload units at the time they occur allows more efficiency as well as appropriate staffing based on patient needs  This means staffing for the workload and real patient needs rather than maintaining a nurse: patient ratio  Flexibility in adjusting staffing based on workloads is needed at the unit level

28 Does IT improve quality?  Real time information  Protocols and standards at the caregivers fingertips  Reminders, nothing forgotten!  Evidence based practice driven throughout the system  Right staff with the right skill mix at the right time for every patient
