In the last two decades, we’ve seen a significant amount of funding and investment in the modernization of healthcare IT systems. The healthcare industry is quickly transitioning to a digital workflow environment. As such, there is a growing need for systems that can work cohesively with one another.
When Mountain State Health Alliances discovered interoperable functionality between their policy management and evidence based procedure solutions it led to enhanced productivity, technology adoption, and patient safety. A result of streamlining the two programs, this allowed staff to access the required documents more efficiently. More notably, the ability to link documents such as in the EMR, plans of care, and physician order entry have provided management with the piece of mind in knowing that they can point staff to all the necessary information needed to increase competency.
By consolidating their documents, MSHA has experienced 10 key benefits:
- Maximization of operational efficiencies
- Increased mitigation of risk
- Better policy management
- Improved access to policies and procedures
- Reduced practice errors
- Enhanced patient quality and safety
- Increased overall competency
- Optimized productivity and time focused on patients
- Boost employee happiness and well-being
- Reduced employee attrition
