Digital will be the “new normal”

We believe digital will be the “new normal”. COVID-19 will be considered as an inflection point for digitalization. We believe that it will help accelerate the overdue digital transformation in healthcare both in public health and for private health systems. Currently, healthcare providers struggle with unstructured data from fragmented sources. And insufficient analytical capabilities prevent leveraging the full potential of big data.

Digitalizing healthcare and digital platforms are the most important enablers for expanding precision medicine, transforming care delivery, and improving patient experience. But there are cumulative steps on the road to operationalizing insights gained from data. Technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI) can turn data into actionable insights, but first it must be intelligently generated, and aggregated.
Furthermore, guaranteeing cybersecurity is crucial to maximizing value while minimizing risk. The digitalization of healthcare will increase value and thus improve medical outcomes at reduced costs.

Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS)

Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) are used to automatically identify and track the location of assets or people in real-time to help you understand how well your healthcare facility is performing.

RTLS deliver location and time stamp data, which can be used with appropriate analytics tools to optimize hospital operational processes and empower the connected (or ‘smart’) hospital.

RTLS help you to improve clinical and operational pathways while reducing cost.
These technological real-time solutions enable you to leverage digitalization and optimize operations:

  • Less searching - more patient time
  • Faster feedback - higher patient satisfaction
  • More efficiency - lower operational costs

Operational Performance leveraged by teamplayRad

Our Value Partners for Healthcare Consulting provide you with Operational Excellence3 for your Radiology Department and beyond.

This is an unique IT-enabled consulting service to help you achieve a sustainable performance improvement by turning radiology data into actionable insights. The solution delivers full improvement cycles, including comprehensive workflow assessments to identify bottlenecks, jointly agreed metrics, and goals for improvement and transformation. This consulting service is delivered by interdisciplinary teams of lean-certified consultants, radiology consultants, and data analysts. Together we pave the way for measuring, interpreting, and managing operational performance by using a customized dashboard, as well as coaching and knowledge sharing.

With Operational Performance, you’ll have a long-term partner and a solution that will drive IT-enabled, cost-effective transformation in your radiology department with full visibility of your operations. The Operational Performance capability module is a suite of consultancy services specifically for imaging departments. It puts Lean principles to work and focuses especially on developing systems for ongoing improvement.

  • One key component of the program is the integrated KPI-dashboard in teamplayRad that helps provide visibility to challenges while recognizing staff contributions toward meeting those challenges.
  • Another key component is a series of series of Rapid Improvement Events (RIEs). RIEs are multiple-day workshops that leverage the knowledge and experience of all staff – managers, administrators, radiographers, radiologists and supporting staff. They accelerate the culture change required for effective Lean transformation. With our Rapid Improvement Events, lean methodology, quarterly workshops, and our transformation experts, Operational Performance will support you throughout the entire journey – while our monitoring component (teamplayRad) helps you manage improvement progress and operational performance.

See what you can achieve by checking our Case Study “Transforming care delivery in the Radiology Department through Value Partnerships” of Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, United Kingdom.

We enable you to obtain:

  • Higher enterprise wide operational efficiency of processes
  • Faster and more coordinated patient workflows across the hospital
  • The right resources (staff, equipment, space and inventory) for the right patient at the right place and time
  • Intelligent staff and patient communication to minimize wait times for expensive resources
  • Improved patient satisfaction with personalized care management
