New York City, New York (PRWEB) May 16, 2016
Konnarock Healthcare, a leader in nurse centric point-of-care mobile solutions for healthcare, announced today the implementation of Risk Manager at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital in New York city. “As a major New York hospital, we are extremely focused on patient-centered care and providing our nurses with the most innovative cutting edge solutions is one of the ways we deliver on this mission,” says Diana Raymond, Assistant Director Nursing Quality Initiatives at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital. “We understand the importance of providing our clinicians with the right technology so they can better focus on patient care. When Konnarock Healthcare presented an opportunity for our team to integrate our current electronic health record with their nurse focused tool we knew this would increase timely best practice care and improve our patients’ experience.”
To ensure the solution best fit the needs of Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital's team environment, Konnarock Healthcare partnered with the clinical team and conducted an in-depth assessment to understand the opportunities to enhance and strengthen nursing workflows. The solution was successfully piloted and published in the December 2015 Institute for Healthcare Improvement conference.
“Instead of a time consuming Easter egg hunt in the medical record, our nurses can leverage a single view of the nurse centered high impact care items ready for immediate intervention. This is proven to improve care and save lives,” says Raymond. “This application allows Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital to further improve our clinical workflow and provide a better patient experience.”
