OnSomble recently signed an agreement with Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital (Henry Mayo) in Valencia, CA to assist in implementing a strategic initiative designed to strengthen the hospital’s practice culture within a professional practice model of care delivery.
OnSomble’s team will work with Henry Mayo’s professional nursing leadership and staff to:
- Measure the professional role orientation
- Reveal development strengths and opportunities
- Translate those strengths and opportunities into specific targets for enhanced patient care
- Provide strategic and consultative services that will support a practice-culture transformation consistent with Henry Mayo’s goals.
“Our culture supports the RN as a key decision-maker on the interdisciplinary healthcare team and OnSomble’s models and tools will help us to educate our nurses and measure their professional development using innovative technology,” notes Larry Kidd, chief nursing officer and vice president of patient care services at Henry Mayo.
Dr. Maria O’Rourke, who will lead the OnSomble team, is enthusiastic about working with Kidd as he leads this initiative for Henry Mayo, stating, “I know our work will create an environment where excellence in patient care can be achieved and sustained through professional practice.”
Henry Mayo’s focus on nurse professional development has been strategically linked to information technology available to nurses, according to Bob Hudson, SR VP and CFO at Henry Mayo, who adds, “For the last decade we have been enhancing our information technology and now we have the opportunity to tie nurse professional development to technology-driven assessment and educational tools. That is an exciting development for our hospital and our community.”
