Real-Time Discharge Notification
Though Connexall was being successfully utilized for nurse call and patient monitoring notification at Nebraska Medicine, patient throughput needed improvement—specifically regarding pending discharges. When a physician entered discharge orders into the EMR, there was no way to send a real-time alert to the assigned RN and lead RN concerning these discharge orders. This made the discharge process too long. It also meant that the baseline median discharge time on some units was 3 hours and 30 minutes, which was frustrating for the patients, their families, and staff.
“If I had to sum up Connexall in one word, that one word would be: powerful. Connexall is a very powerful system and the capabilities are endless as far as integration and alarm management options.”
