Rather than assuming all patients require equal care, Cerner Clairvia leverages outcomes, interventions, and observations to create a custom workload calculation based on each patient’s clinical condition.
Clairvia continuously compares the incoming projected admission, discharge, transfer and workload demand with existing schedules. Managers are able to easily identify any pockets of over or under staffing and proactively adjust staffing needs.
For the staff scheduled, Clairvia enables equitable patient assignments by matching the most qualified, available caregiver to each patient, taking into account staff competencies, continuity of care, the patients’ individual care needs and projected transitions of care.
Discharge planning begins on admission. Clairvia aligns each patient’s progress against established transitions of care benchmarks, allowing caregivers to compare each patient’s expected clinical progress to his or her actual progress from admission to discharge.
Clairvia offers dozens of reports designed to aid organizations in managing workforce needs and planning. Find better alignment to financial departments within your organization by retrieving data to evaluate needs.
Banner Thunderbird Medical Center (BTMC), a general medical and surgical hospital located in Glendale, Ariz., 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 (ICU) and Progressive Care Unit (PCU) did not fit the level of care for those units. “Data confirmed what we thought— that some of these patients required a lower level of care than ICU, and some required a higher level of care than PCU.” said Joyce Rudders, RN, MSN RN, director of Critical Care, Intermediate Care and Progressive Care Services at BTMC.
Six months after implementing Cerner Clairvia, nursing overtime and double time at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles dropped 8.4% and saved 2,000 hours.
Nurse managers at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) are optimizing their approach to RN staffing by using Cerner Clairvia℠ to implement creative staffing techniques and make equitable patient assignments. Cerner Clairvia helps hospitals calculate a patient’s acuity, or the care hours needed to move a patient towards wellness, based on information captured in the EHR. Accounting for the different level of care needs for each patient supports the organization in distributing fair and manageable workloads to members of the nursing team.
Cerner’s Capacity Management solutions provide transparency and alignment of assets (staff, patients and equipment) at the right time and right place to improve patient throughput, efficiency, productivity, and outcomes.
Cerner is able to leverage workforce intelligence to analyze data from multiple streams (Electronic Health Record, Admit Discharge Transfer data, Human Resources, and others), to objectively project demand for staff based on individual patient condition and also assign the most competent caregiver.
While other vendors focus on HR metrics for staffing decisions, only Cerner is focused on the patient and individual EHR-driven workload to facilitate improving outcomes. In addition to each patient’s clinical data, Clairvia utilizes information from existing time & attendance systems as well HRIS systems to leverage each piece of information needed to make the best staffing decisions, for both caregivers and patients.
Yes – Cerner Clairvia is EHR agnostic and can be utilized with any vendor.
