MONITOR
"I love chocolate croissants as much
as the next person, but why are they a
food choice in a healthcare facility?"

(such as storage) next
to hard space (such
as ORs) to allow those
rooms to easily expand
if demand or equipment
warrants, or using engineering systems designed
for additional capacity to reduce the cost of future
upgrades.

3. Mobile technology continues to
explode
As patients embrace mobile technology as a way
to proactively manage their health outside of the
hospital, so are health systems. Banner Health
enlisted 600 of its patients who are covered by
its insurance plan and have a minimum of five
chronic conditions into a program to monitor
their conditions 24 hours a day. The patients are
given a number of biosensors that allow nurses
to track their data and intervene when necessary
by calling patients or having health coaches
make home visits. The goal is that immediate
monitoring, evaluation, and subsequent action
improve the overall health of patients while
reducing the cost of care.

4. Why don't hospitals serve better
food?
I love chocolate croissants as much as the next
person, but why are they a food choice in a
healthcare facility? Hospitals should be the gold
standard for healthy eating since patients go there
to get better and food is a crucial part of wellness.
However, as I walk through the public spaces of
hospitals or visit their cafeterias I'm amazed at the
choices. Facilities should focus on healthy organic
food choices with vegetarian and low-fat options.
Additionally, healing or rooftop gardens could
incorporate a farm that's accessible to the staff
and patients to provide them the opportunity to
relax and reconnect to nature.

5. The emergency department is still
the front door
The flow of patients to the hospital emergency
department (ED) is not slowing down even with
the introduction of alternate care locations. Using
Lean methods to redesign and expedite patient
treatment, we've been able to decrease the
door-to-doctor time and expedite low-acuity
patient volume through the ED. The introduction
of "results lounges" allows us to reserve
treatment space, the department's most valuable
resource, for those who need it. For patients who
do need a treatment room, uniformity is the key
with interchangeable case carts to maximize
room utilization. Observation units managed
by the ED are regaining popularity, although
they're successful only with a clearly defined
observation policy. Security has always been a
concern within EDs and RFID tracking devices
or phones that incorporate a staff "emergency
assist" button are becoming more popular.
