The data is there, I just don’t have the time to access it! Isn’t there a tech solution that could just get me what I need when I need it?
I spend so much time clicking and clicking in the EMR, I miss the days that I could make eye contact with patients. But I also know I need the data to inform my care decisions.
Sometimes it’s hard not to succumb to burnout. I see so much potential to improve healthcare but the complexity bogs and slows everything down. We need something that can simplify and change the game.
With all the modern solutions and great things that EMR technology brings, I wish that it would allow me to just see what is happening and has happened to the patient I’m caring for at my fingertips without spending 10s of minutes hunting and clicking for answers.
Our IT department is great, but they are busy too. I wish that I could do most of the design for how a process of care ought to run and then let the tech just work to make it happen.
We know what to do, we are clinicians! But the software needs to let us do what we do best and assist and empower us to do it. When we figure that out as an industry, it will be something special.
I love analytics, I really do. But do you know what I really want? I just want to get the information relevant to caring for my patient when I need it in near real time at the point of care. Until I have that – the analytics seem less important.
I’ve sat through so many vendor meetings, asking for the same thing, but it seems the answers are always the same: Analytics! New data sources! Everything but what I really want – actionable, accurate information at the point of care.
SaVia Health is software that coordinates the work of physicians and care teams so that patients can get the right care at the right time even in the most complex processes.
For example, when a patient gets sepsis (a very dangerous infection) you have only 3 hours to take a series of critical steps coordinated across many different departments in order to save the life of the patient. SaVia is the software that clinicians can use to design those steps and provide insight on the entire care process.
We empower clinicians in their care of patients with software that highlights their best processes to get patients back to health.
