How does technology play a role in patient safety?
Nearly all patient information is entered in an electronic format. This allows for storage of a more complete and accurate healthcare record so that your physician, nurses and other healthcare team members can provide optimal care to you now and on subsequent visits. Physician orders are clear, easy to read and are immediately sent to departments, such as Diagnostic Imaging, so your tests are expedited and results are available much quicker. Utilizing portable computers at the bedside, medications are verified with the patient’s electronic list to ensure we have the correct medication and dosage for each patient.
