Re: Decrease in login time for clinicians
Those are fantastic suggestions, @CMMI, and i believe it's something Munson plans to do (and hopefully they'll chime in and tell us!). Dale mentioned IT is going to do more surveys of users and I think that includes discovering how they're using that extra time. When I spoke to another Imprivata client at a trade show a few months ago, the IT pro told me one pediatriac ENT surgeon figured out he could do one extra surgery per week with his time savings. That's more money for the hospital and doctor -- and one extra child per week who's out of pain or in a better health position.
You are spot-on in the importance of following up on these initiatives. When you take the time to do that, it can really open up eyes. Not only do you get buy-in for the next big project, but it really emphasizes how much a part of the overall team that IT is; shows how much everyone is working together toward making the healthcare organization better.
