How to Leverage Medical Cart Experiences to Improve Care Collaboration, Outcomes, and Patient Care
The battle against COVID-19 has highlighted the critical role telemedicine can play in delivering quality care during challenging times. While many may think of telemedicine in terms of physician-patient visit, the value of the technology actually goes much further. Such is the case with the often overlooked medical cart. With telemedicine technology, the medical cart becomes more than a device to hold a monitor; it becomes a mobile, flexible healthcare delivery solution that brings the benefits of telemedicine to any healthcare experience.
Following are six benefits of using medical cart experiences to improve care collaboration, outcomes, and the patient experience. We also provide guidance on what features to look for when choosing a solution.
Enables real-time multidisciplinary consultations
Patients want—and need—timely access to specialists. Having a medical cart at the patient’s bedside eliminates delays in care and allows for more effective care collaboration. This is especially beneficial in locations that lack access to high-demand specialists. When choosing a solution, be sure you choose one with high-quality audio capabilities. The best options should automatically adjust for both louder and softer voices to make sure everyone is heard. A superior medical cart experience is important in settings with lots of activity like a busy emergency department, or when the patient may be hard of hearing.
Enhances virtual rounding
One of the greatest advantages of using medical carts equipped with telemedicine technology is that they can enhance the effectiveness of rounding by bringing multiple stakeholders, including the patient’s family, together at the patient’s bedside. This ensures everyone is on the same page in regard to the diagnoses and care plan, which helps improve adherence. Look for medical carts that meet your organization’s specific needs. If storage is an issue, choose one with a slim profile that can be easily tucked away when not in use. Do you need a solution with a mouse and keyboard for low-light environments? Be sure to ask. You should also check out the power source as some are simple plug-and-play solutions while others offer hot-swappable batteries for greater mobility. Choose a solution that offers a hand-held version for even greater mobility and flexibility.
Promotes better business intelligence
Healthcare administrators can find it challenging to capture in-depth analytics with which to ensure regulatory compliance, track performance against best practices and to drive continuous improvement. Look for a solution that allows you to measure encounters, outcomes and appointment types by location, provider, specialties and patient populations. The best solutions are those that provide financial analytics by revenue and payer mix, as well as by provider, payer, diagnoses and location.
Patients have more choices than ever in where they get their healthcare. Providing a positive patient experience has a clear impact on an organization’s ability to capture market share, create brand loyalty and build a reputation for delivering high quality care. Ensuring patients and their families are easily able to connect with the care team is an important part of the experience. Therefore, it’s important to choose a medical cart solution that enables one-click connectivity. If remote providers have trouble getting into the virtual meeting or patient visit, it can influence the patient’s confidence in the provider or in the quality of care they’re receiving. The best telehealth solutions also allow organizations to brand the medical cart interface and to personalize help messaging. This provides another opportunity to promote the brand at each patient encounter.
