Moving Up to the Cloud 

Case Study: Upgrading to a Cloud-Based Reporting System

The Heart Center of Greater Waterbury used to maintain its patient records with a server-based model that required administrating and upgrading by the IS Department.

An End to the Era of Dictation 

Case Study: From Dictation and Transcription into Real-Time Reporting

Orlando Health, a Central Florida healthcare system with more than 2,000 beds, until recently used dictation and transcription for all its physician reports. It was costly, time-consuming and fraught with the potential for errors. But after rolling out a new workflow, Orlando Health has trimmed 10-14 hours from report-completion time. Here’s how.

Healthcare IT and Quality Improvement at The Christ Hospital Health Network 

The following is an excerpt from the case study, “Integrated Software Supports Quality Improvement: D2B Initiatives, Discharge Processes and More at The Christ Hospital Health Network.” Download the full case study here.

The Heart and Vascular Center at The Christ Hospital is continually looking for ways to improve processes, reduce costs, and optimize patient care. Using integrated LUMEDX cardiovascular information solutions has allowed staff to quickly run reports that it needs to support quality improvement programs.

“We’ve seen great results with the open heart extubation program,” says Data Analyst Cheryl Bartone. “The staff and physicians have a better understanding of the data, and have made improvements to their methods accordingly. It’s been like night and day—now we are able to trust the data and use it in order to make procedural adjustments that benefit the patient and our overall cardiovascular service line’s performance.”

The Heart and Vascular Center also runs regular reports to identify improvement opportunities in the following areas:

  • Discharge: Using reports generated in Apollo, the hospital’s Throughput Committee analyzes how a patient moves through the system and works to streamline the discharge process.
  • Door-to-balloon times: Reports drill down to the patient level in order to determine current D2B times and make improvements in order to reduce them.

Learn with LUMEDX  


Sally Carter, Senior Technical Writer, LUMEDX

Today we spoke to Sally Carter, Senior Technical Writer at LUMEDX, about the LUMEDX CVIS e-learning initiative. 

Hi Sally! How are you involved with e-learning for LUMEDX clients?

I’m on the Product Documentation team at LUMEDX and wear two hats – Senior Technical Writer and Instructional Designer. I am primarily responsible for organizing the e-learning initiative at LUMEDX and created the set of materials now available on www.lumedx.com. My Documentation colleagues and I work together with the training group and other experts to create content that will provide value to our clients.

What e-learning opportunities does LUMEDX offer?

Currently we offer registry training for ACC, STS, ACC to STS cross-population, and registry updates. We also offer training on STEMI data entry, which was created in response to a customer request.

In early 2014, we are planning to release e-learning on interfaces, and training on the Cath Report Editor and Echo Report Editor. This library of materials will continue to expand in the future, so stay tuned!

How can clients use LUMEDX e-learning at their own facilities?

LUMEDX e-learning is intended to supplement our instructor-led training. It provides 24 x 7 training and support on common topics such as how to do a registry validation and harvest. If you have new employees who are unfamiliar with the harvest process, or employees who need a refresher at harvest time, LUMEDX e-learning provides immediate training and assistance. The great thing about this is that these materials can be reviewed anytime and as often as you like!

The materials are designed for all levels of users and are broken down into several easy-to-use components. Lessons and demos show users how to perform tasks step-by-step, and the PDF Quick Guides remind users of key steps in a process to follow up on other training and e-learning materials. We also offer “Try Its” that allow users to actually complete a software task. Finally, each topic has a self-quiz at the end so that users can check their own learning progress.

How can clients sign up for e-learning?

To view LUMEDX e-learning you must have an account on www.lumedx.com and be registered for e-learning. Follow the steps below to sign up for a new account and activate the account for e-learning.

LUMEDX in Boston 

We've been in Boston this week for a Regional Training and the LUMEDX Annual User Group Conference prior to STS AQO meeting. These past few days have provided a chance for us to reconnect with our wonderful clients, and we took some photos of LUMEDX employees and clients hard at work. As LUMEDX Senior Education Trainer John Nicholls puts it, "We are so grateful to have clients like Boston Medical Center to partner with as we provide educational opportunities to our users!" 
 

Until next time!

This week was a special one for LUMEDX and many of our users. Converging in San Francisco's Hotel Nikko in the days before NCDR.13 and ACC.13, users of LUMEDX software arrived from all over the United States to network, learn about new updates to the product suite and get some additional training. 

It was also a chance for those of us at LUMEDX to spend some time connecting and reconnecting with our end users in person. Many of our clients may be familiar with Senior Product Education Trainer John Nicholls, Clinical Registries Manager Katrina Craig and Senior Marketing & Events Coordinator Joelle Mitchell (who organizes this event and is omnipresent during ACC week!). Users also heard from Senior Director of Client Relations/Inside and Vertical Sales Gwen Korney, Nicole Blalock of John Muir Health, Vice President of Client Satisfaction Bill Gazda and Practice Director of Analytics Consulting Gus Gilbertson. 

We hope our attendees found this year’s conference educational and enjoyable. See you all again next year.
