Accurate, timely data is essential for clinicians and managers to respond to urgent problems and meet performance targets. However, “information overload” is a problem that can affect all healthcare professionals.
Vast amounts of data, ranging from telemedicine to patient records, can be spread across several systems with varying degrees of timeliness.
HSJ’s free webinar – Using information to drive efficiency improvements in healthcare – brings together experts to discuss how timely data can help managers and clinicians.
Having the right data at the right time can allow managers and clinicians to respond to urgent issues, such as patients about to breach the four hour accident and emergency target.
Timely information also enables staff to anticipate and avoid difficulties. As many of these issues are linked to targets or key performance indicators, there can be financial and reputational repercussions if organisations do not react in time.
This free webinar looks at the value of timely information, ask how it can be provided in both a clinical setting and to help managers, and how it can contribute to efficiency improvements in healthcare.
