Project Name: Device and Documentation Workflow Analysis
Graduate Student: Ankush Bhagat
This is a system-wide project not restrained to a single unit or hospital. The hospitals are in the design phase of implementing EMR and updating the Clinical Information System (CIS). The biggest challenge is to implement it such that the front-liners using this tool will have fast and easy access to increase their utilization and allow more time for direct patient care. To appropriately use the new CIS we need to determine the right type of devices and optimum quantity required. The project includes forming a baseline model for each type of unit and then validating it using tools such as space assessment, utilization analysis and spaghetti maps. Finally, each unit will be tailored as per special requirements.
