25X5 Symposium Reimagining Documentation
During the 25X5 Symposium, Dr. Airan-Javia discussed how better tools can alleviate the documentation burden that has been linked with clinician burnout. In turn, clinicians will be able to document more efficiently, which improve patient safety.
Did you know that care transitions are one of the most error prone parts of a patient’s hospital stay? That is largely due to miscommunications and a lack of process. In this session, CareAlign CEO Dr. Airan-Javia, shares best practices learned through 15 years of research & practice.
Miscommunications is one of the leading causes of preventable errors in medicine. During a session at the 2021 AAIM conference, Dr. Airan-Javia presented on ways to improve communication among care teams, which will in turn reduce errors and improve patient safety.
Ask any practicing clinician – they STILL use paper to manage their work, even when there is a fully integrated EHR available. Why? Because the EHR wasn’t built to support clinical workflows. Check out this quick video where Dr. Airan-Javia discusses the HIPAA risks associated with common work arounds and how to fix them.
From the beginning of time, (wo)mankind has developed tools to make us more efficient. While on the face of it, Medicine has been a proud beneficiary of this innovation, the preponderance of medical inventions in recent decades have been focused on molecular discoveries, or devices to support procedural skills. For example:
Scanners of all types: CT, MRI, advanced surgical imaging guidance etc. → Equivalencies: radar, sonar, etc.
Remote monitoring equipment of all sorts → Equivalencies: The internet, wearables, etc.
A myriad of surgical tools ranging from the scalpel to the machines that enable us to operate at the microscopic level → Equivalencies: robotics to everything in the military
And so much more….
Recent Research has shown that an alarming number of medical errors are based on communication gaps, either while taking patient history or during handoffs between care providers. In 2015, a benchmarking study conducted by CRICO (The Controlled Risk Insurance Company , providing coverage to Harvard affiliated medical organizations and their physicians) found that communication errors were responsible for over 1,700 deaths as well as additional costs of $ 1.7 billion, to the healthcare system.
I quickly realized the difference between my daily tech and health tech: the applications that I use in my daily life are built for me, the end-user. The technology that I use as a physician—the EHR—was built to satisfy the business of healthcare. Not the delivery of care.
CareAlign was built for clinicians, by clinicians with the goal of giving providers a tool that fits their workflows. We believe that clinical technology built with a focus on usability and accessibility improve patient safety and clinician wellness. Check out a quick, 5 minute demo fo CareAlign to see how it supports clinical workflows to improve patient care.
