If you are a healthcare professional, then you and your organization are caught between the horns of compliance and improving the patient experience. With the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) now in full effect, the days of lax enforcement are over. First-time penalties or violations can reach up to $250,000. The transition to EMR/EHR use, along with all of the systems and equipment upgrading that entails, will be done and done well – or else. Penalties can also extend to your organization’s business associates.

There are many causes, but patient behaviors can play a large role in many chronic diseases. The 3-4-50 Framework, developed by the UK-based Oxford Health Alliance, states that tobacco use, poor diet and a sedentary lifestyle contribute to cancer, cardiovascular disease, chronic lower-respiratory disease and diabetes. Those four conditions cause 50 percent of deaths, many of them premature.

This widely sought-after goal is beset by significant obstacles. A big part of the problem is lack of patient engagement, or patients not being adequately involved in care decisions and follow-up care.

Mobile devices help clinicians improve the quality of patient care and save lives by improving staff communication and collaboration, and by providing instant access to a wealth of mission-critical information — from real-time lab results to a change in a patient’s condition or verification of the “5 rights” of medication administration at the patient bedside. In addition, mobility also helps healthcare organizations comply with important governmental and regulatory safety standards, without tasking an already overburdened nursing staff with additional paperwork. This white paper provides guidance for planning and implementing a clinical mobility solution in today’s healthcare environment, including a five-step roadmap to help key stakeholders identify needs.

When it came time for Southwest Vermont Medical Center (SVMC) to deploy a new barcode medication administration (BCMA) system, SVMC chose a Zebra positive patient ID system consisting of barcode printers, scanners, software tools, media and labels. Since that time, over two million medication doses have been administered. Nurses have been able to achieve an average medication scan rate of over 95% and a patient identification scan rate in excess of 99% for inpatient units. Even more impressive, these results have been sustained over a five-year period.

Dallas-based Parkland Health & Hospital implemented a Zebra technology solution to create a mobile-enabled workforce at its new state-of-the-art hospital campus. That mobile solution enabled the nursing staff to focus on what’s most important — patient care. The solution gave nurses the ability to communicate in real time, access right-now information and take the right action with that information. Parkland’s leadership was able to track all patient activities from positive patient identification and specimen collection to laboratory specimen tracking and pharmacy medication administration. Additionally, hospital staff communication with voice and secure texting, along with patient alerts and alarms—all help increase patient safety, care and satisfaction.

Labeling blood and other samples at the time they are collected improves patient safety and helps prevent a host of problems related to misidentification — including many of the estimated 160,900 adverse events that occur in U.S. hospitals annually because of sample identification errors. There is a strong and growing body of evidence within medical literature that creating specimen identification labels on demand at the patient bedside with a mobile printer can significantly reduce errors. The Joint Commission’s National Patient Safety Goals (NPSG) advocate the use of two patient-specific identifiers, such as name and birthdate, whenever taking blood or other samples from a patient, and to label the sample collection container in the presence of the patient.

Digital technology continues to play an ever-increasing role in today’s modern healthcare systems. While 95% of hospitals in the United States have implemented Electronic Health Records or EHR, much work remains.1 Patient identification errors continue to plague hospitals and are the precipitating factor for 13% of surgical mistakes and 67% of transfusion mix-ups.2 Nationally, medication errors cause at least one death every day and injure 1.3 million people annually.3 The cost of lost lives, reduced productivity and malpractice insurance fees are debilitating the healthcare industry. At the center of every hospital’s safety program is the patient wristband, which provides caregivers access to the information they need at every point of care during the patient stay. However, not all wristbands are of equal quality. Some wristbands are not durable enough to withstand the rigors of a busy hospital environment, leading to workarounds and mistakes that, in the end, comprise patient care. H

Detecting and preventing errors that threaten patient safety is a closed-loop process that begins at the point of care, extends to independent laboratories, and then back to the caregiver. Sample identification and results reporting errors can lead to misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment with deadly consequences. A 2006 Wall Street Journal article reported that while malpractice claims for pathology errors are relatively low, they are the second most costly. In addition to creating a serious risk to patient safety, sample misidentification creates significant financial implications. Redraws, retesting and additional treatment that result from sample errors cost the healthcare industry an estimated $200 million to $400 million per year.

There are several reasons for this, including the inability of healthcare institutions to constantly monitor post-operative deterioration as well as patient's inability to visit the healthcare center for post-operation followups. Most of the patient data is recorded manually. This data is often weaned from displays of multiple monitoring devices like vitals monitor, infusion pumps, and ventilators. More often than not, these devices do not talk to each other or to a central system. Doctors, nurses, or other care-givers manually note down patient statistics in their files and notepads. Even though the healthcare industry is in the throes of digitization, there's still a lot of paper doing the rounds. eventually, the data from these physical sheets might be fed into an electronic system, but there is a high chance of error in that process.
