I’ll admit that I still feel relatively new to many of the technologies that are being used in the hospital. I’ve learned a lot over the years, but I came from an ambulatory background and so I still have plenty to learn about the hospital IT environment. Luckily in the world of EHR, there’s a lot of cross over between hospital and ambulatory.
An example of a place I have a lot to learn is around Patient Flow in hospitals. This was highlighted for me really well when someone from CentralLogic pointed me to a great new hospital patient flow resource they created. Basically, it’s a simple way to access their inventory of videos from the Patient Flow Summit they held in Las Vegas.
They also have a YouTube channel with various Patient Flow videos. For example, here’s one video from Dr. Eugene Litvak, PhD, Institute for Healthcare Optimization, JCAHO Patient Flow Editor, Harvard Adjunct Professor sharing ideas on where to get started with improving patient flow at your hospital.
I love this amazing world we live in where you can go online and learn about pretty much any topic. Plus, it’s just going to get better and better.
