“We don’t have enough nurses.” As COVID-19 cases surge in hotspots, hospitals are forced to scramble for adequate staffing. While health systems and public health agencies work to create capacity for COVID-19 patients, especially ICU beds and negative pressure rooms, the availability of nurses needed to staff these beds lags behind. In this blog post, I’ll describe how one of our customers uses specific LiveProcess tools to handle staffing challenges during this pandemic, and then look at the big picture for healthcare staffing in the months and years to come.
A medical surge caused by a global pandemic disrupts hospital supply chains. Learn about strategies hospitals and health systems are using to manage resources.
Healthcare Innovation: Emergency Management Healthcare Coalition Proves Valuable in Riverside County
A key to the coalition’s capabilities is the fact that all members agreed to use the same technology platform, LiveProcess, which offers a secure, real-time virtual situation management system built for healthcare systems to dynamically rebalance business and clinical operations to meet demand while managing quality of care, employee and patient safety and financial risk.
Government Technology: Emergency Management – Georgia Medical Center Deploys New Software as Coronavirus Hits
Tift Regional Medical Center in Georgia deployed the LiveProcess Emergency Manager software two weeks before the coronavirus hit the region and began managing the virus via the system immediately. The medical center’s virtual command center is a management portal that acts as a kind of “virtual bulletin board,” allowing staff to disseminate information, keep track of planning and coordination and response to situations. It keeps all staff on the same page in real time.
In this blog post, one in a blog series on COVID-19 pandemic response solutions, we’ll share how the coalition in Riverside uses the coordination and collaboration features of LiveProcess to manage bed and ventilator availability across 18 facilities.
Riverside collects availability information from the facilities in its coalition by using the survey feature in LiveProcess. Creating a survey is intuitive and highly customizable, so you can capture exactly the information you need in the format you want, such as free text, multiple choice, checklist, or numeric answer. For bed and ventilator availability, Riverside surveys each facility for the quantity of resources in several different categories.
Many health systems are struggling with the onslaught of information, issues, roadblocks and more that arise during a large-scale situation like the COVID-19 pandemic.
