Clinical Transformation

Text Description is below the image.

  • Improve consistency in quality performance on key clinical indicators
  • Enhance the patient experience
  • Increase value and decrease risk in Genesis as noted in PGVA
  • Current
    • Evidence-based clinical practice is not embedded in many of the order sets.
    • The workflow pattern has not changed much. For example even though a Stat Order is now instantly processed, it does not mean that the nurse sees it any earlier to do anything about it.
    • We still have MO specific formularies. This means we have different ways of approaching even the highest risk drugs.
  • Future
    • We will embed evidence into workflow, order sets, rules, etc.
    • Workflow will be optimized by embedding evidence—enhancing the overall clinical experience and care outcomes.
    • Communication and efficiency improvements between all care providers and patients.
    • Medication cycle and formulary will reflect evidence based use.
