Continuous Clinical Improvement
Healthcare organizations have many different departments, each with their own system for entering patient data. Typically these systems are not capable of connecting to one another. So if a clinician needs to compare patient data from two different departments – for example, lab results and pharmacy orders – in the past their only option was to print out both reports, search for the appropriate data in the first report, compare it with the second report, and so on. It’s a labor-intensive, frustrating and inexact method of surveying patient data that takes up a large portion of clinicians’ time – time that could be spent improving patient care.
Fortunately technology provides clinicians with more efficient options, like clinical surveillance powered by TheraDoc. This solution, which works in the clinical workflow, enables clinicians to compare almost any clinical data they choose in a single patient view. Clinicians decide:
- What data to view
- What data not to view
- How data is to be viewed
- Which updates in patient status or treatment to find and report on
In addition to surveillance, TheraDoc also enables clinicians to:
- Document clinical actions
- Share data with anyone on the system
- Obtain evidence-based clinical guidance for many types of interventions
- Create configurable reports
- Automate reporting to the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN)
