Our Care Transformation and Innovation (CT&I) teams constantly pursue improvements across patient flow and operational practices. This allows nurses to spend more time at the bedside to efficiently move patients toward the care they need. Advancing care models and skill mixes means that facility leadership, direct care providers, and patients and their families will experience new innovative technologies. This includes machine interoperability, shared data usage after individual input, and core documentation elements.
Patient care opportunities:
Prototype solutions that bring all labor data together in one system are under development in labor and delivery units. The one system describes the current state of labor and the baby’s condition, sharing the information with all team members. This allows real-time awareness and enables machine learning to predict labor progress for the next four hours.
An environment of shared training produces consistent competency, proficiency and mastery of new technologies. By expanding our focus to the care team and the ways in which teams work together in a new digital space, we are developing inter-professional collaborative competencies, shared decision-making and side-by-side/ at-the-bedside incorporation of new AI-informed data.
