Patient movement day offers a unique opportunity for clinicians to take a practical look at what in-patient journeys will look like in Connect Care.
All physicians, prescribers, nurses, allied health and other staff are encouraged to attend. They can see and learn about how complex patient movements are coordinated with clinical information system (CIS) tools and workflows. Morning demonstrations illustrate how Connect Care will facilitate the sequence of events that must occur for patients to flow safely and efficiently from emergency to ward, critical care, surgery, diagnostic imaging and other investigation and intervention venues. In the afternoon, drop-in practice centers (including a physician practice center) allow participants to dig deeper, view more specific workflows, ask questions and practice different patient movement scenarios.
Wave 1 Patient Movement Day occurs Wednesday September 18, 2019 from 08:30 to 16:00, with scenario explorations and demonstrations in the morning and practice activities in the afternoon. A more detailed agenda will follow, allowing physicians to focus on the transitions most relevant to their practice.
Physician and Medical Informatics Leads should promote awareness of patient transitions as a high-risk readiness challenge. Some will help as Champions. All should be aware of the guide (see Byte below) and contemplate how to best prepare for smooth post-launch patient movement in their clinical area.
