Achieving Truly Effective Healthcare

“If we want to realize genuine improvement in the quality of the healthcare we deliver, we cannot start with computer driven technologies that take the caregiver away from the bedside then work our way backwards. We have to start with the patient experience and design forward. Our goal has to be to establish best practices by identifying creative innovations in work flows, treatments, supplies and equipment that will honestly serve our patients first, second empower our caregivers to be able to provide the best possible care. Lastly, we need to work toward continuity, balance, sustainability and productivity between the many faucets of healthcare delivery. Ultimately our practice must be guided by benevolence as the driving core value toward achieving true healthcare reform. ” - Gwen Jewell, Clinical Nurse II, BSN, CWS
