A Nurse's Perspective: Shifting the Focus From the Computer to the Patient

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - August 12, 2015) - On the Aventura blog, Regina Cole, acting Chief Nursing Information Officer (CNIO) for the Company, writes about how technology designed to improve healthcare actually ends up creating inefficient and frustrating workflows for the clinical staff.

Dr. Cole writes, “Most nurses are fairly skilled users of technology. We regularly access EHRs, bar-coded medication administration systems, scheduling programs, patient tracking systems, automated communication programs, and more. Typically each of these programs require a separate log-on and password to ensure patient data remains secure. Unfortunately all these log-ons and passwords are not only hard to remember, they also create inefficient workflows.”

Dr. Cole goes on to explain how Aventura’s Roaming Aware Desktop (RAD) solution improves workflow by providing users with authenticated access via a single tap of a secure card – eliminating the need to enter all those user names and passwords. RAD then immediately launches all the correct clinical applications based on the user’s location (operating room versus patient room, for example). RAD also delivers an extra layer of enterprise security through privacy screen functionality, idle disconnect, and intelligent printer reassignment.

“Aventura allows nurses to spend less time on the computer and more time at the bedside and actually “nursing,” notes Dr. Cole.
