Who’s the doc?

12/11/17 | Maximize Quality

In an academic inpatient institution, the physician directly responsible for patient care changes frequently. Call schedules and whiteboards fall short of keeping this information patient-centric with timely and quick accessibility. Valuable patient care time is too often spent in search of “Who is the doc right NOW?”.

To solve this problem, the team searched for the source of truth to identify the inpatient primary contact, and implemented “Physician Handoff with Primary Contact” across the enterprise.
