Old thinking like this will surely be the downfall of your healthcare organization. Today's healthcare environment is constantly changing and as Health Information professionals, we too must change. Leveraging IT will ensure that your healthcare organization is well position to meet the changing demands of managing patient care data such as processing your hospital’s vital statistics information.
This presentation will provide you with an insider’s view of how Kaiser Permanente, Antioch-Walnut Creek Medical Centers leveraged technology by creating an Electronic Birth Certifcate Worksheet to capture vitals statistics data needed for completion of the State Mandated Birth Certifcates. A future goal includes having an interface with the State’s new Electronic Birth Registry System
Things to consider:
- Why leverage your Hospital’s IT Department?
- Who are your Key Stakeholders?
- Should you partner with your IT Department and explore options to create an internal electronic birth certificate worksheet that captures the required vital data needed for processing your Hospital’s Birth Certificates?
