Children’s National Health System improved quality outcomes in six categories by taking a snapshot of the patient population and receiving reports that highlighted gaps in patient care. Providers then used that information to focus on providing preventative measures.
Truman Medical Centers (TMC) in Kansas City, Missouri, is an academic health center that provides accessible, state-of-the-art quality health care to its community regardless of the ability to pay. A key area of focus in support of this mission is preventing patient falls.
Staff and physicians at Cerner ITWorks℠ client Children's National Health System in Washington, D.C., can quickly move from computer to computer without reentering their username and password each time. Cerner installed badge readers at each workstation and gave ID badges the ability to be used as log-in credentials. Users tap the badge to the reader and are then logged into the system, without typing their username and password. This process, called single sign-on (SSO) technology, saved an estimated 3,000 hours from April-June 2018.
Blood transfusions have the power to save lives. But when used inappropriately, they can harm patients, generate excessive costs and waste an important, limited resource. Armed with studies showing up to 40 percent of transfusions in the U.S. are unnecessary, University of Missouri Health Care leaders saw an opportunity to improve patient safety and reduce costs by implementing a red blood cell (RBC) transfusion clinical decision support alert.
Providers at Truman Medical Centers (TMC) have more time to focus on patients after Cerner sustainment coaches worked with the Cerner ITWorksSM client to gain electronic health record (EHR) efficiencies. Coached providers cut their time in chart per patient by more than 20 percent while contributing to more than $1 million in regulatory reimbursements.
