How Role-Based Communication Improves Clinical CollaborationBlog
How Role-Based Communication Improves Clinical CollaborationBy Chris Lowder, Senior Solution Architect at TigerConnect onDecember 28, 2021 Many factors go into delivering excellent healthcare, including practitioner skillsets and modern healthcare technology like clinical collaboration platforms. Finding the right provider at the right time is critical to success, especially when patient experience is taken into account. Making this happen in real life is not so simple, either. Quickly and efficiently collaborating with the right care team member has long been a challenge. Delays in care coordination affect the quality of patient care. Delays and disconnects are unproductive for care teams and unprofitable for healthcare organizations. The struggle to locate the right doctor or nurse at the right time can be attributed to well-intentioned but obsolete reliance on pagers and phones. Modern clinical collaboration platforms offer a solution. With its ability to quickly locate and message
4 Ways Patient Engagement Makes Patient Outreach BetterBlog
4 Ways Patient Engagement Makes Patient Outreach BetterPatient engagement technology fosters interactive patient-provider communicationBy Chris Lowder, Senior Solution Architect at TigerConnect on March 25, 202240 – 80 percent of the medical information provided by healthcare practitioners is forgotten immediately. Almost half of the information that is remembered is incorrect.In the status-quo patient-provider relationship, communications between patients and physicians can feel like a one-way street. The physician (likely on a time crunch) asks questions, reviews medical history, requests labs and necessary diagnostics, and provides assessment and care recommendations to the patient – hoping that the care plan is understood. But what happens if the patient doesn’t ask questions during the appointment, misunderstands the instructions, and forgets to take their medication on schedule? Having a tool the provider and their staff can easily leverage to follow up with patients and possibly
Clinical Alarm Management: Past, Present, & FutureBlog
Clinical Alarm Management: Past, Present, & FutureBy Julie S. Grenuk, RN, MS, RCC / Nurse Executive at TigerConnect on July 16, 2021When it comes to a natural disaster like a hurricane, sound alarm management notifies people in time should they need to evacuate a high-risk area. Similarly, clinical alarm management refers to how a healthcare team responds to unfavorable changes in a patient’s condition. A good patient outcome requires striking a balance between over-responding to situations that don’t need any response beyond monitoring the patient and under-responding to situations that require further attention. The trigger for initiating a clinical alarm protocol can be either human, such as a nurse noticing a patient in distress, or technological, such as a change in a patient’s heart rate captured and relayed. Good clinical alarm management requires a cohesive and flexible plan that accounts for many possibilities. A commonly used tool is alarm management software. The need f
How to Create Fair (and Pain-Free) Physician Schedules
How to Create Fair (and Pain-Free) Physician SchedulesEliminate physician scheduling issues that lead to burnout while saving time and increasing productivity.By Ricardo Estrada, Senior Product Marketing Manager at TigerConnect Ask any practice administrator how they feel about their clinic’s physician scheduling process. They might grimace as hours spent in spreadsheets, archaic systems, multiple channels for change requests, and frequent miscommunications come to mind. Manual methods for managing physician schedules can feel like an impossible juggling act for administrators and can contribute to feelings of burnout when physicians are dissatisfied with the scheduling outcomes.Leveraging modern physician scheduling software empowers clinics, physician groups, and multi-specialty groups to leave the chaos behind and give significant time back to administrators while providing fair and equitable schedules for care teams.If your organization is comparing software, prioritizing the follo

Why Physician Scheduling Software Is Critical for ProvidersBlog
Why Physician Scheduling Software Is Critical for Providers Work Smarter, Not Harder with a Physician Scheduling Software Solution By Justin Wampach, founder of Call Scheduler, & VP of Scheduling Division at TigerConnect What is physician scheduling software?Physician work-life balance and effective physician call scheduling can both be accomplished by one tool: physician scheduling software. Health systems used to make a weekly or monthly schedule by hand, meaning an employee had to dedicate time and energy to figuring out how to put the on-call schedule puzzle pieces together. He or she would have to make sure not to overschedule some doctors while underutilizing others. Additionally, there had to be a system in place for any changes or requests. This “system” could include verbal, texted, or emailed requests from doctors requesting time off. Mistakes are common using this system . While technology has improved many facets of the healthcare system, it has also changed how we s

7 Tips to Improving Critical Lab Turnaround TimesBlog
7 Tips to Improving Critical Lab Turnaround TimesBy Will O'Connor M.D., CMIO at TigerConnect on January 21, 2022 Critical lab work always seems so easy on TV. A doctor yells out, “Get me a full workup, stat!” and the next thing you know, the patient is getting exactly the treatment they need. Cut to commercial. In real life, however, things are a little different. The lab does its best to deliver results to the care team quickly. The doctor who ordered the labs might have gone off shift before the results were ready. The lab pages someone else on the care team, but the recipient doesn’t reply because he or she is busy, or isn’t aware that critical lab results are expected. Time slips by, and patient care can suffer.With modern clinical collaboration and communication (CC&C) solutions, the time between critical lab work being ready and the care team taking meaningful action based on the lab results can shrink dramatically—improving patient care in the process. Improving Critical V
Best Practices for a Successful Clinical Workflow StrategyBlog
Best Practices for a Successful Clinical Workflow Strategy Why does clinical communication matter? By Will O'Connor M.D., CMIO at TigerConnect on August 12, 2021 Clinical workflows enable doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals to coordinate effectively and provide the best quality care for their patients. Each caregiver on the team has a unique and critical part to play. The communication between team members who work either with each other or across different hospital departments must flow flawlessly. Gaps in communication drive the majority of medical errors. Unclear communication between hospital employees can easily lead to poor patient care, including clinicians missing important information and procedures not being taken care of on time. What happens when the patient has already received medication but the nurse has failed to note it? Or it’s reported in a low-visibility location? Pertinent information is at the forefront of patient care. An excellent clinical workfl

How Medical Systems Solve Clinical Workflow Challenges with TigerConnect Roles and TeamsBlog
How Medical Systems Solve Clinical Workflow Challenges with TigerConnect Roles and TeamsBy Will O'Connor M.D., CMIO at TigerConnectThe healthcare industry is undergoing a dramatic transformation. More patients in the system and increasingly complex industry regulations make it difficult to manage clinical workflows across medical providers, groups, teams, and hospitals. According to a recent analysis of 23,000 medical malpractice lawsuits, it’s estimated that 7,000 of these cases were preventable with better communication. In fact, those clinical communications breakdowns resulted in nearly $2 billion in malpractice costs and almost 2,000 preventable deaths. Reliable and effective healthcare demands a functional collaborative effort across clinicians, surgeons, and healthcare facilities. Whether it’s transferring medical records, providing access to scans and images, or facilitating diagnoses and patient interactions – integrated clinical communication is a must. With so much at stake,

TigerConnect and Critical Alert Join to Deliver Full-Spectrum Care Collaboration in the CloudBlog
For years (even back when a pandemic was something you read about in a book or learned about from watching Contagion), the US healthcare system has faced a nursing shortage. And now, during the COVID-19 crisis, there is significant and absolutely warranted concern that many in the current nurse population will leave the profession due to the extreme physical, mental, and emotional burnout they are experiencing all over the country.Bottom line is that caregivers are forced to continually do more with less in every hospital regardless of status or location and this has been especially true throughout the pandemic. Exacerbating the situation is the poor communication and collaboration that plague so many hospitals and healthcare facilities everywhere.With the extreme budget constraints that have only gotten worse during the pandemic, how can hospitals ensure that they provide the best possible patient care and deal with caregiver burnout? Care teams must be provided with the tools to work

The Biggest Mistake to Avoid When Considering a Switch to EHR-Embedded MessagingBlog
The Biggest Mistake to Avoid When Considering a Switch to EHR-Embedded Messaging How the desire for quick cost savings can result in long-term consequences to care efficiency By Will O'Connor M.D., CMIO at TigerConnect on October 19, 2021 Each year, a small number of healthcare IT buyers are tempted by their EHR vendor to replace existing secure texting software with EHR-provided chat tools. On the surface, this makes sense. After all, EHR chat tools are fully integrated with the EHR and they seem to perform similar functions. Plus, it’s one less vendor to manage, and it’s generally included at no additional cost. A win all around, right? Not quite. The mistake most IT buyers make in this situation is equating a secure texting solution with a more comprehensive clinical communication platform. They are vastly different. The secure texting solution you bought four years ago may have evolved into something much greater. The mistake that often results from this evolution is that healthcar
3 Ways to Improve Physician CommunicationBlog
3 Ways to Improve Physician CommunicationBy Ricardo Estrada, Senior Product Marketing Manager at TigerConnect onFebruary 1, 2022 Improving patient outcomes should be a core goal for every physician group. However, achieving that goal can become impacted if physicians, staff, and patients are not effectively communicating. According to a study, healthcare miscommunication is attributed to more than 7,000 malpractice suits resulting in nearly 2,000 deaths and $1.7 billion in costs. Clinical collaboration has many benefits and improves physician communication and workflows, leading to more effective patient care. Let’s look at the benefits of improving physician-to-physician and physician-to-staff communication and how not adopting modern communication tools can impact your physician group. Impact of ineffective clinical collaboration and communicationBeing tethered to old, outdated ways of operating negatively affects patient outcomes.
