Optimising the patient’s journey in the acute setting.
Our focus is squarely on the patient and individual electronic health record-driven workloads to help improve their outcomes. In addition to each patient’s clinical data, our Clairvia® solution utilises information from existing time and attendance systems to leverage each piece of information needed to make the best staffing decisions, for both caregivers and patients.
A hospital’s workforce is its greatest asset, so it’s critical to appropriately plan for staffing needs and have them align to individual patient care needs. Cerner utilises predictive intelligence, smart assignments and productivity reporting to ensure that your organisation can provide the best possible care and patient outcomes.
Utilise real-time data from across your organisation to manage resources in a sophisticated, efficient way. Our solutions deliver views spanning bed management, domestic services, transport, pre-admissions, transfers and more, meaning that you can make sure the right people are in the right places getting the right treatment at the right time.
Banner Thunderbird Medical Center (BTMC), a general medical and surgical hospital located in Glendale, Arizona, implemented Cerner Clairvia Outcomes Driven Acuity in September 2013. Immediately, the system identified that some of the patients’ acuities in BTMC’s Intensive Care Unit and progressive care unit did not fit the level of care for those units.
“CareAware Patient Flow® really integrates and makes the throughput for the patient much quicker. The folks in bed placement can get an overview of where open beds are and where they can... manage their patient flow and their capacity much easier.”
— Matt Keller, senior analyst, Adventist Health System
“Clairvia is more predictable for the staff and they’re buying back more time for their day to do the duties that they’re really called to do on a daily basis.”
— Teri Drake, project lead analyst, Adventist Health System
“The ability to standardise workflows in Clairvia around access, scheduling, absenteeism and operational staffing is extremely beneficial.”
— Sally Bankston, assistant vice president, Florida Hospital
Cerner automates bed management processes, the biggest driver of patient throughput in an organisation, an enormous cost/opportunity, and one of the largest pain points for patients and organisations. Bed management is dynamic and plays a huge role in management and visibility of demand so Cerner integrates CareAware Patient Flow into FirstNet® – our emergency solution – revealing inpatient bed assignments in the latter.
Cerner is able to leverage workforce intelligence to analyse data from multiple streams (electronic health record, admission/discharge transfer data, human resources, and others), to objectively project demand for staff based on individual patient condition and also assign the most appropriate caregiver.
Location awareness for patients, care providers, and equipment through real-time location services (RTLS) tagging helps to quickly identify location of items and improve management of assets through sensory technology.
Transitions of care within acute care and post-acute venues is augmented with analytics, technology, care team alignment, and broad visibility to data. Many Cerner solutions contribute to improved transitions of care processes, including care team tools such as digital unit dashboards, bed management system, APACHE® Outcomes, newly optimised clinical workflows for discharge, and most appropriate post-acute placement.
