Gaining Actionable Data from Patient Leader Rounding

The term “big data” in healthcare has become synonymous with informed decision making. We live in an age where vast amounts of aggregated data and resources are available to key decision makers. Processes like patient leader rounding can provide substantial insight into patient experience, satisfaction, and safety from the data gathered during rounds. But there’s a problem with this data: it can be challenging to dissect relevant and actionable insights.

CMS acting administrator Andy Slavitt says, “Healthcare providers are overloaded on data entry yet rampantly under-informed.” Here at Nobl, we are creating tools like Vigilance™, Cadence™ and Alliance™ to help with data collection and analysis of rounding processes, making the discovery of actionable data simple.

We have compiled a simple list to help your organization begin the conversation around actionable rounding data.

  • Is your data simple to collect and is it stored in a central digital location?
  • Is your data presented in a clear and concise format and is it customizable to the decision maker?
  • Is both compliance and survey data reports readily available to all leaders?
  • Is your organization reviewing rounding data frequently and making process changes based on the data?

Purposeful patient leader rounding is an excellent opportunity for decision makers to gain actionable data directly from patients.

Innovations in Telemedicine Help People Regardless of Location

How can we improve healthcare practices and access to specialists in smaller hospitals and rural areas of our country?

Recent innovations in technology have increased access to healthcare professionals for patients thousands of miles away.

More of the population is growing older, increasing the number of doctor and hospital visits each year. Virtual care through robots (“telemedicine”) is steadily becoming the answer to increase the geographic reach of doctors all over the world.

In a recent article from the American Society of Medical Engineers, a telemedicine robot is described that can interact with patients across the world. These robots have a two-way screen where doctors can see you, and you can see the doctor. With a remote control device, doctors can alter the camera views and move around the room freely. This gives doctors access to multiple rooms in one hospital. Additionally, each device contains tools used to find the patient's heart rate, hear the patient's lungs, etc.

According to The Daily Telegraph, medical technology is allowing safer, 24 hour support to patients. By creating software to monitor patients from miles away, during daylight hours a doctor can monitor a patient across the world while they are sleeping. Additionally, this technology adds another safety net to rural patients.

As technology continues to improve, we can only imagine how healthcare will evolve to meet the ever challenging need of delivering healthcare in highly complex environments. Nobl remains committed to serving our communities and hospitals in the common quest for better healthcare delivery.
