Inpatient Care - Details
Make less mistakes in the operation or emergency room through check lists. Improve hand hygiene and disinfection use, better handovers and discharges through intelligently designed templates with clear plans for medication. These are just examples but in all of these areas, nudges can decrease error rates and increase the quality of your service!
Unnecessary expenditures by not-indicated and superfluous lab orders or diagnostic imaging? Too many unnecessary complications with bladder or vein catheters? You want to increase vaccination rates among patient groups at risk? Or you want to ensure seamless referrals into rehabilitation clinics? We offer simple and low-cost solutions for all of these challenges with guaranteed effects!
Do you want to strengthen your communication skills to convince patients of indicated and reasonable interventions? Studies show the impact of framing the same information regarding decisions about surgical procedures (McNeil et al.,1982).
Another great opportunity for both improving life quality for patients and decrease health care costs are so-called decision aids. These aids provide transparent and easy to grasp information on complex interventions (e. g. chemotherapy in end-of-life-care) on the basis of Cochrane Reviews for both patients and physicians.
You can easily decrease costs by just displaying transparently which costs a certain procedure or order causes (e. g. lab orders) or you insert a quick informative message which points to the correct indications of a certain order. Another very effective tool is to use generics on the first position of drop-down-lists when you choose a drug for a patient. Evidence shows that the drug on the first position is prescribed significantly more often than the rest.weitere einfache Möglichkeit ist das Default-Setzen von Generika an erster Stelle von Dropdown-Listen, wenn ein Präparat verordnet wird. Das an erster Stelle genannte Präparat wird nämlich signifikant häufiger ausgewählt.
