Having a solid recipe for creating predictable, build-once “gourmet-style” clinical workflows that satisfy all stakeholders may sound too good to be true, but it’s possible – if you follow the right steps, says CMIO Dirk Stanley.
Physicians, advanced practice providers, and prescribers may wear the same coat, but their roles and responsibilities differ greatly, and therefore, so do their EMR configuration and training needs, says CMIO Dirk Stanley.
There are few, if any, healthcare terms that trigger as much confusion and debate as “inpatient,” says CMIO Dirk Stanley, MD, who sheds some light on what it means, how it works, and how it can be misunderstood.
Although it requires an investment in time and resources to map the current state, failing to do so can lead to more costs and complexity with a clinical improvement protect, says CMIO Dirk Stanley.
As care models continue to evolve, we need to stop using the word ‘clinical’ to create a divide between different types of workers, and start encouraging teamwork and collaboration, says Dirk Stanley, MD, CMIO at UConn Health.
