Let’s face it – clinicians are the last people in the hospital who want to be slowed by technology.
Technology mandates are requiring clinicians to spend more time than ever on computers—viewing, verifying and documenting patient information. There simply aren’t enough hours in the day to juggle patient data management and actual patient care. The result? Delayed entries, more errors and less time with patients. No one wants that!
The problem starts with long logons. When it takes 30 seconds-to-minutes to access a patient record, even more time to determine where a confidential document just printed, the natural response is to avoid the computers altogether. Frustrated clinicians enter patient data all at once, not at the point of care. Clinician collaboration is limited. And often doctors and nurses spend time chasing down patient information rather than caring for patients.
Aventura provides clinicians with near-instant access to the information they need at the point of care.
How Aventura works
Aventura combines patent-pending context- and location-aware technology with near-instant access logons. What does this mean? It means that a clinician can log into one workstation in three seconds to update a patient record, walk down the hall to a different patient room, and in another three seconds, see a different patient record—the one for the patient in this room—as fast as she can snap her fingers. Aventura uses a rules-based engine to define and present the patient information based on the clinician’s location and credentials. The clinician gets the right information on the right patient at the right time fast, and without fear of entering data into the wrong record.
In that simple exchange, the clinician may save one or two minutes each time she logs in using Aventura. Now consider that she logs into various workstations over 50 times a day. We’ll do the math for you—Aventura can give each clinician an hour back each day. Multiply that by every clinician in your hospital and you have measurable time savings!
The result for patients? Improved and more timely care, and a safer environment. The result for clinicians? More collaboration between caregivers, a feeling of control and knowledge that their time is spent on patients rather than on unnecessary processes. And ultimately, greater job satisfaction and a lot more happiness!
