The nursing role is evolving. While hospitals are understaffed and tightening budgets, nurses are taking on more responsibilities, causing some to feel burned out. At Cerner, we’re playing our part to innovate and transform health information technology for nurses. Our solutions can help manage your workforce, coordinate care delivery, connect devices to the EHR, improve communication across patient care teams and comply with a dynamic regulatory environment to help reduce the documentation burden among clinical staff.
Connecting workflows across the care continuum
Nursing is near the top of the list of occupations with the largest projected number of job openings. Though the nursing shortage has been discussed for years, it is far from resolved. This adds pressure to clinicians to be as efficient as possible, and every second counts.
There’s an immense amount of cross-team and cross-venue collaboration that goes into patient care. Orders are written, x-rays captured and labs drawn. With such a large network of clinical personnel, communication failures represent some of the largest contributors to adverse clinical events.
Nurses spend most of their time at the bedside caring for patients, and as such they are accountable for patient safety. Even the most capable nurses are susceptible to human error with the large volume of patients and long hours worked each day.
Quality patient care relies on the care team’s access to information, ability to respond to emergencies quickly and to work collaboratively. Without an informed, agile and collaborative nursing team, organizations risk a declining quality of care.
Cerner Imaging brings together image-enabled workflows and near-real-time data to provide clinicians with a holistic patient view directly within the EHR for cardiovascular, radiology, clinical and enterprise imaging. This single source of truth ensures both advanced capabilities, such as decision support, within daily imaging workflows while also helping meet current and future regulatory requirements.
