Sanford's implementation of the IntelligentInSitessoftware takes in real-time location data and interprets it into helpful intelligence in the form of tasks and notifications, visualized locations of people and equipment on map views, and in-depth analytics and reporting showing utilization, duration of equipment or people in various statuses, and so on. This data will provide Sanford with unprecedented visibility, analytics, and intelligence into its operational processes. Initial uses include asset management, temperature monitoring, ambulatory workflow, and operating room workflow. Future use cases may include emergency department workflow, hand hygiene monitoring, and inpatient workflows.
Sanford and IntelligentInSiteswant to seamlessly integrate this solution into day-to-day activities to provide staff with the right information, at the right time, and on the right device. A few examples include: personalized mobile apps that help caregivers prioritize rounds and track progress against department goals like time at bedside or call light responsiveness; and automatically-updated view boards that show hospital patients their care team, what to expect for the day and even when the lunch cart arrives on the floor -- all with the goal of improving staff and patient experiences while increasing efficiency.
In the clinic setting, theInSitessolution is helping Sanford deliver "patient-centered care" where patients bypass the waiting room and go to assigned exam rooms where nurses, physicians, and lab technicians come to them versus them making their way around to different service locations. This technology will shift the entire flow of the patient experience in the clinic. In the hospital, initially the focus will be on asset management, temperature monitoring and patient flow. Reports will help Sanford improve patient care, reduce costs, and standardize processes for a consistent and repeatable patient care experience.
For the vast majority of Sanford staff, this technology is "hands-free," meaning it doesn't require entering information on a keyboard. Location and duration data are acquired and alerts are sent automatically. Targeted role-based training will be provided to help staff quickly and effectively prepare and take action with minimal interruptions.
TheInSitessoftware is designed to span multiple hospitals across large healthcare systems, aggregating and processing data to provide real-time operational intelligence at the department level and hospital level. At the healthcare system level, theInSitessolution will help Sanfordemployeesimpact operational processes and patient care in real time. The enterprise-wide capabilities of the IntelligentInSitessoftware will allow Sanford to monitor, benchmark, and improve system-wide operational performance and process improvement initiatives, resulting in increased healthcare efficiency and improved patient care.
