Health information technology (HIT) offers hospitals and healthcare systems the tools that integrate data from a clinical, financial, and operational perspective that yields analytical insight into their healthcare organizations. Leveraging technology to manage labor costs can be used by collecting the data from the electronic medical records that drive clinical staffing and clinical assignments to deliver superior patient, clinical and financial outcomes. Technology can be leveraged by healthcare organizations as they pursue the Quadruple Aim, which includes adding the goal of improving the work life of health care providers, comprising clinicians and staff, as well as seeking better cost, quality and outcomes. This allows for an increase in the coordination of care across all continuums.Healthcare organizations need a strategic clinical and operational plan to assist them in their efforts to optimize patient outcomes, improve employee satisfaction and maximize revenue. This can be accomplished by leveraging technology to increase the care coordination received in patient care. Implementing a solution will allow your organization to operate at maximum efficiency. Increased engagement with the patient throughout their continuum of care and increased communication amongst the entire healthcare team leads to better patient outcomes.The increasing advances and development of technology in health care offer the opportunity for increased availability of data to drive operations and the potential to support evidence-based management decisions (Hyun, et al, 2008). As challenges continue to rise, there is an enormous opportunity to leverage technology to provide better patient care to patients and improve clinical outcomes using real time, actionable data.Combining the best science-driven processes with patented technology and years of experience provides a solution that allows you to decrease turnover, improve performance, streamline hiring processes, and reduce risk.
