Change can be overwhelming for most people, particularly when they are being asked to keep up with rapidly changing technology that forces them to adjust how they typically do things. How can hospital leaders and IT directors help their facilities embrace new and disruptive technologies and get employees on board? Below are three ways you can ease the knee-jerk resistance your clinical teams may have to learning and embracing these transformative technologies.
The most effective disruptive technologies are intuitive and fit seamlessly into the clinician workflow and existing patient care systems. Amplion’s Care Assurance nurse call system exemplifies how disruptive technology can revamp the dated technology of traditional nurse call systems—a complicated circuitry of electrical wiring with limited reporting capabilities—to improve efficiency and communication among nursing teams and make their jobs easier.
For example, at one acute care hospital we worked with, registered nurses and respiratory therapists were hearing an average of 167 alarms per shift—and they never knew whether the alarm was serious or even for one of their own patients. Transitioning to Amplion’s nurse call system helped care team members identify which alarms demanded immediate attention and which ones pertained to their individual patients. As a result, they were less likely to tune out the alarms and better able to respond to the patents who needed them the most.
Along with helping nurses manage alarms, coordinate care and communicate more effectively with patients, our Care Insight platform gathers real-time data that provides nursing managers and hospital leaders with deeper visibility into the patient care delivered in each room and insights to help them alleviate staff burnout and improve interactions with patients.
