Hourly Rounding

AONE 2015 Day 1 Recap

AONE is underway in sunny Phoenix, AZ, and Nobl couldn’t be more excited (or suntanned)! Thousands of nursing professionals from across the nation are here, which means we’re finally able to be with OUR people; nurses!

The conference began early with an inspiring keynote by world-renowned author and TED speaker Simon Sinek. He captivated and inspired everyone in the house to focus on ‘why’ we chose careers in healthcare, encouraging his audience to focus on long term vision rather than short term goals and metrics — metrics we often times become so caught up with in our industry.

You can’t run a race without knowing where the finish line is. Goals are not enough, you need vision.

Our energy continued into the exhibit hall as it opened for the morning. We were honored to have hundreds of nurses stop by our booth and chat with us about how Nobl impacts nursing and revolutionizes patient care management. With the core of our solution focused on hardwiring hourly rounding, many of our conversations focused on the struggles of implementing an hourly rounding solution and how Vigilance™ makes it easy for healthcare organizations to adopt digital hourly rounding.

Our booth is located next to Capella University, where ABC’s NYMed star and real life nurse — Katie Duke — came and spoke to booth attendees about her unexpected journey into nursing and her continued passion for caring for patients — especially those in critical conditions. I enjoyed hearing how she saw NYMed as an opportunity to show the world what nursing is really like — the good, the bad, and the struggles nurses have to put up with on a daily basis, but how the humanistic side of nursing makes it all worth it.

After a busy day of sessions and networking, the day closed with an exhibit hall reception where we had the opportunity to continue building relationships in a more relaxed environment. Soft pretzels and spinach artichoke dip helped fuel us for the evening President’s Reception where AONE members, attendees and exhibitors finally took the conference badges off and danced the night away!

We’re looking forward to an equally successful day 2! If you haven’t already, stop by our booth — 415 — to learn more about Vigilance™. Plus, we’re giving away writing pens that look like syringes. And what nurse doesn’t love that?

5 Workflow Improvements Your Nurses Will Love

With AONE 2015 right around the corner, Nobl has been focusing our time and efforts on one goal: radically improving nursing. With that in mind, we’ve gone ahead and created a list of ways our software does just that.

From customized unit rounding maps to instantaneous family communication, here’s 5 ways the Vigilance™ platform transforms chaos into teamwork, giving nurses a consistent way to deliver better patient care.

1. Digital Hourly Rounding

It’s time to replace pen and paper with tablets and computers. Vigilance™ makes it easy to quickly document rounding tasks and leave personalized comments for the patient’s family so your nurses can focus on what really matters ー providing excellent patient care.

2. Live Rounding Maps

Thanks to our custom created rounding maps, nurses have the ability to know which rooms need attention by just a glance at a screen. Color-coated rooms communicate how long until the next round is due, enabling nurses to never miss a round.

3. Friends & Family Portal

Families are informed with the latest information as soon as an hourly round is submitted. Vigilance™ assigns each room with a custom URL that families can access 24/7, delivering peace of mind whenever a family needs it most. Because there’s no patient-identifying information anywhere on the portal, it’s HIPAA compliant!

4. Recognize your top nurses

Vigilance™ tracks statistics for all staff and displays them on reports that can be printed off and displayed in the unit, giving well-deserved recognition to your top performing nurses. There’s nothing like a bit of friendly competition to give an extra boost of motivation to deliver a job well done.

5. Team Collaboration

At the end of the day, a unit’s ability to divide and conquer tasks enables nurses to deliver exceptional patient care. Being able to see which rooms need attention with our rounding maps allows nurses to team up and assist others with their tasks when they need help, creating a culture of collaboration and teamwork.

Everyone at AONE 2015 is focused on the goal of better nursing, so why not stop by booth 415 and experience how Nobl is dedicated to helping you help nurses. Comes see why Vigilance™ is your ticket to happier, more efficient nurses.
