“The results of the MedAptus roll out are phenomenal and the teams continue to report a great experience in the roll out process. Best ever in 20 years.”

“We love the workload balancing. Physicians find it very helpful for ASSIGN to factor in discharge planning into their assignment distribution, taking into account the greater work they’ll spend with those patients.”

Big patient safety issue. Before, we were missing patients daily. With MedAptus, we no longer miss anyone.”

Some of the research behind automated and  intelligent patient assignments

The Nurse-Patient Assignment: Purposes and Decision Factors
Allen (2015)

“By identifying the best unit work teams or the most equitable assignments, we can improve nurse satisfaction and reduce turnover…the identification of the most efficient therapeutic assignments can lower LOSs, adverse outcomes, and ultimately hospital costs.”

Developing and testing a computerized decision support system for nurse-to-patient assignment: a multimethod study.
Van Ooseveen, et al. (2014)

“Creating well-balanced, high-quality assignments is crucial to ensuring patient safety, quality of care, and job satisfaction for nurses.” 

Effect of Hospitalist Workload on the Quality and Efficiency of Care.
Elliott, et al. (2011)

“Hospitalists have reported that high workloads reduce their ability to adequately assess the patient and fully discuss the plan of care with patients and family. Likely as a result, hospitalists report ordering unnecessary procedures, testing, and consultations when busy, all of which add costs.”

Impact of Attending Physician Workload on Patient Care: A Survey of Hospitalists.
Mitchtalik, et al. (2013)

“…excessively increasing the workload may lead to suboptimal care and less direct patient care time, which may paradoxically increase, rather than decrease costs.” 

ASSIGN FOR PHYSICIANS

Improving Workload Balancing and Continuity of Care

The Problem

Like many of its peers, a multi-state health system in western United States found itself struggling with its paper-based patient assignment process. The process was slow, stressful to the staff, and error-prone.

It also suffered from complaints of unfairness and manipulation by the doctors.

In addition, continuity of care was difficult to implement and the manual assignment process often led to missed patients during rounding.

“We are more organized. Now, everybody can follow the rules and there’s no opportunity for influence or manipulation.”

HEALTH SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR

The Solution

The health system implemented ASSIGN for Physicians, achieving several important outcomes.

  • Eliminated any possibility of missed patients.
  • Helped maintain continuity throughout a single hospitalization,  as well as across multiple re-admissions. ASSIGN has been particularly helpful with continuity for a hybrid geographic/unit-based rounding environment.
  • Made the census more accurate.
  • Created a more structured patient assignment process.
  • Assignment process every morning takes minutes, not hours.

ASSIGN FOR NURSES

Improving Morale by Creating More Equitable Workloads

ASSIGN for Nurses provides nurse managers with the tool they need to balance workloads using patient acuity, geography, continuity of care and other customizable variables.

No more guesswork for Charge Nurses. No more favoritism.

Thousands of computations are automatically applied to save nurses time and make their jobs a lot easier.
