Other Considerations

Text Description is below the image.
  • Standardization across all units in org would bring many more benefits (study costs prohibitive)
  • HANDS generates data for describing care, progress toward outcomes, meeting goals, RN patient load, benchmarking best practices
  • EHRs are costly spend billions of dollars (over and above software costs) training and tailoring to foster variation in look and feel... away from standardization
