Is the hospital you work for your home away from home? Do you want your hospital to be the best it can be? Do you see room for improvement but don’t know how to improve the efficiency of your hospital?
Most efficiency problems in any industry come down to one thing—communication. The old saying, 'communication is the key to any good relationship,' also applies to the doctor/patient relationship.
If you can improve communication processes, you could cut costs while improving healthcare. More fluid communication can reduce the time it takes for nurses and doctors to do their jobs. More fluid communication allows doctors the ability to provide patients with more timely test results and care to reduce patients’ fear while waiting for the unknown.
Here are three easy ways to streamline your hospital's communication and workflow.
Make Your Hospital More Efficient by Simplifying Your Cardiology Workflow
Epiphany’s Cardio Server ECG Management System
Leave paper and the delays in its processing in the past. Epiphany's Cardio Server ECG Management System has an intuitive user interface and is IT friendly. It allows you to pull up ECG data and other diagnostic test results from anywhere in the hospital. You can view ECGs from an iPhone or iPad or leverage our new Cardio Server Mobile Application. This digital access eliminates the need for paper copies. A doctor can easily pull up results at the patient’s bedside with a touch of a screen.
Make Your Hospital More Efficient by Simplifying Your Pulmonary Workflow
Epiphany's Pulmonary Server allows users to access, view, edit, and electronically sign pulmonary studies and other diagnostic test data from anywhere in the hospital, office, or home. It streamlines communications and hospital efficiency by saving time and reducing labor costs. Just look what it did for the Cleveland Clinic.
Make Your Hospital More Efficient by Going to Paperless Rhythm Strips
Rhythm Strip Management
Epiphany's Rhythm Strip Management provides a solution to the labor-intensive challenges of patient monitoring strip management. The application eliminates paper and the time it takes to cut it, scan it, file it, and read it. Again, paper belongs in the past. Anyone with access can pull up rhythm strips digitally and instantly. This instant access reduces time and streamlines communication.
More timely communication makes hospitals more efficient. Using these three, or even just one of these solutions, will streamline your hospital's communication. Healthcare technology such as these applications will significantly improve the care-delivery experience for both the doctor and the patient.
