HOW A US TRAUMA CENTER INCREASED COST-SAVINGS AND REVENUE

This case study analyzes the cost savings and increased revenue achieved by using an effective point of use data capture tool.

This cost-savings report was compiled with data provided by the Director of Perioperative Surgery at a Level 1 Trauma Center with 10 ORs.
In the report, we look at the impact that inaccurate data capture at the point of care had on clinical and operational performance, as well as the financial implications.

We showcase the benefits of introducing new image recognition technology in procedure rooms, as an alternative to traditional work processes such as barcode scanning and ERP/EHR system data entry.

US healthcare providers commonly use these methods of documentation, but both can lead to incomplete or incorrect EMR records, which will have an organization-wide impact, including risk-management and revenue.

Lack of confidence in POU data can be seen to sap workforce hours by prompting additional organizational activities to review, validate and correct clinical records.

This Case Study looks at the financial impact of poor POU data capture on a US Level 1 Trauma Center. We will see how a data issue from the surgical setting acted like a stone cast into water, with the ripples being felt across the organization.

We look at how embracing new technology for POU data collection will improve cross-organizational efficiency, and how this simple action can achieve 99% data integrity and seven figure cost savings.
