Valley Hospital sought a solution for improving the patient experience, its patients’ perception of care and overall satisfaction during inpatient visits. Specifically, hospital leadership identified the need to provide consistent patient education and medication teaching, and enhance real-time service recovery. After selecting GetWell Inpatient, a powerful Interactive Patient Care™ (IPC) solution, leadership was intentional that the technology support the facility’s patient- and family-centered care culture, and that each unit had the resources needed to carry out cultural adoption and sustain utilization.
Valley Hospital developed a clear vision and scope for its implementation of IPC, selected modules that supported internal strategic initiatives and set clear, measurable goals. The vision was then shared throughout the organization by engaging a cross-functional team to ensure accountability, including CNO, frontline staff, physicians, patient relations representatives, case managers, nursing directors, patient educators, IT/IS representatives, patient/family advisors and nursing informatics professionals.
