I love hospital art. Why not improve the lives of employees by showing something beautiful?
Day 2 is going well. It is fascinating to see each department with very different concerns come together to solve problems.
We have a doc who can order tests and prescriptions but can’t place billing charges without ‘changing context.’ Call the command center. We can fix it.
We have a doc whose USB Dragon mic doesn’t work. Solution: call in a ticket to command center with details, move to a different computer until it is fixed.
Some breast milk scanning process is not well known. Send a red shirt with expertise. Teach the new workflow, get staff up to speed. Done, this morning.
Someone in respiratory therapy is trying to place a lactate order, as they always used to. Can’t do it in the new system. Ok, something we didn’t find out during our ‘discovery’ interviews. It is always something. We’re on it.
Of course when you can sneak in a song…
If You’re Going to Yampa Valley. Based on the Scott Mackenzie song ‘If you’re going to San Francisco.’
CMIO’s take? Good news: everything we solve today is one less crisis tomorrow when we are back to full speed patient care.
