High-Touch Care Enabled by a High-Tech Solution
Kathi Cox, Senior VP, Integrated Experience, Texas Health Resources
Rudy Loremo, IT Solutions, Special Projects, Texas Health Resources
Kim Sisson, Clinical Education Specialist Manager, SONIFI Health
Brenda Taylor, Regional IT Solutions Director, Texas Health Resources

A patient’s desire to stay informed and maintain a sense of control during a hospital stay is well recognized and understood to impact satisfaction and clinical outcomes. Whiteboards are a ubiquitous communication tool in patient rooms, but they have several known shortcomings. Texas Health Resources, one of the largest faith-based, nonprofit health systems in the United States, identified whiteboards as an opportunity to improve. A new EMR-integrated Digital Whiteboard solution was implemented as part of an initiative to improve patient, family and staff communications.

Join us to learn more about Texas Health Resources’ experience and the outcomes they are seeing post-implementation. This webinar will feature a discussion among key Patient Experience and IT stakeholders involved with the project. A review of the study conducted with SONIFI Health, including comparative pre- and post-implementation outcomes, will be provided along with ‘lessons learned’ for others interested in launching a successful Digital Whiteboard implementation.

Mission Experience: Transforming Care in the Ambulatory Setting
CJ Merrill, MSN, RN, CPXP, CPHQ | Patient Experience Officer, Mission Health System

Like many hospital systems, Mission Health has been focused on patient experience in the inpatient setting.

As a result, we developed Mission Experience Best Practices. The purpose of this model is to facilitate culture change in our system and expand the focus of patient experience improvement to the ambulatory setting. In this webinar, we will share the process of developing, implementing and evaluating this model, including the significance of lessons learned. We will explain how we utilize this model to set expectations, establish consistency, maintain accountability and improve performance by disseminating leading practices to all ambulatory clinics.

Optimizing Post-Discharge Outreach: Ensuring Safe Discharges through a Patient-Centered Technology
John Dodd, Program Manager, Office of PX and Engagement, University of Alabama-Birmingham Health
Kristen Noles, Nurse Manager, University of Alabama-Birmingham Health

A hospital admission and discharge is a significant event in a person's life. Unfortunately, the transition home often involves patients trying to comprehend multiple pages of instructions while feeling exhausted, eager, and nervous. While these transitions remain a key challenge for hospitals, one organization has leveraged innovative technology to help enhance the process and improve patient outcomes. This organization, by recording components of a patient's discharge plan, provides a way for patients to re-listen to their clinical course in a digestible format. These audio instructions are sent out to patients via phone 24 hours after discharge and can be accessed for 30 days. During this webinar, the presenters will convey: challenges related to the discharge process, key strategies in implementing new technology into nurse's workflows, successes in engaging stakeholders, their PDSA iterations and positive results realized.

Management Overnight Program: Through the Eyes of the Patient
Darol Bates, Director of Patient & Family Advocacy, Northern Westchester Hospital

Northern Westchester Hospital expects each manager to spend at least one night in the hospital in the role of a patient. Managers are paired in teams and assigned a time frame in which to complete the overnight. During their overnight stay, managers check-in, wear gowns, are transported by stretcher or wheelchair, sleep in hospital beds or care partner pull-out couches, tour waiting rooms and key departments, eat in the cafeteria and order patient room service, and document their findings using structured feedback tools including completing the HCAHPS survey for internal comparison. The insights gained from the management overnight program are compiled, analyzed and used for continuous improvement. Webinar participants can expect to learn about our management overnight program with a focus on the goals of the program as well as planning and logistics.
