Got hundreds of Work Orders open with due dates? Know which ones are most important to stay within Joint Commission guidelines?

Your tech found an issue. Does he know for sure if this triggers a risk assessment?

You deal with these issues each day. Most of the time stuff works and right person is able to identify what’s needed to be done and within time and even documents it correctly according to Joint Commission guidelines. Many times not. Those you have to deal with, at Survey.

Environment of Care, Life Safety and Emergency Management has over 400 elements of performance that need to be tracked and met. Your Maintenance Management Systems prompts you by creating routine Work Orders. However, after that you are on your own to prioritize tasks, track and document.

This is where CRx (consider it Prescription for Compliance!) takes over. CRx talks with your Work Order system, No data entry is needed. Inspections are done on a tablet and if there is an issue CRx will tell you if a Risk Assessment is needed. Then it will walk the user through your hospital’s Risk Assessment matrix to help determine if ILSM is required. When an ILSM is in place,CRx will track it through completion.

Assign responsibilities to staff and vendors. CRx maintains complete repository. Do rounds on tablet and track issues. Have dashboards, to see across your buildings and floors. Your compliance consultant can use it for no charge and you don’t have to deal with tracking spreadsheets and emails. SAFER Matrix delivered by CRx, is another dashboard to see what’s being tracked and where you stand.

CRx is a site license for your facility and includes licenses for management, your staff, your vendors and even for your compliance consultant and his staff.

Spending time on managing paperwork? Have you thought of documentation management?

It’s time to automate, organize and manage your organization’s joint commission compliance documents in a much more efficient and reliable way. A key aspect of concern to every healthcare organization is to manage the documentation. It has usually been observed that right around the time of survey there is a lot of workload in assessing the available paperwork, organizing it as per requirements, closure of pending tasks and at times even after a lot of additional hours put in by staff members, companies fear of a mismatch that usually is an outcome of mismanagement of documents all along.

Reference from TJC accreditation regulation Effective Jan 1 2017:

“Required documents that are not available at the time of survey will no longer be eligible for the Clarification Process”

How do managing online folders / electronic files benefit your organization?

Some initial benefits to our Joint Commissions, EP electronic file organization:

Well organized & efficient management of documents
Managing heaps of paperwork and organizing them as per date, frequency, into files manually etc. is a nightmare, managing your paperwork electronically helps you keep your documents organized, work is more streamlined and easily accessible for internal as well as external surveys. A better managed workflow provides employees with peace of mind and enhances their confidence level to represent the organization during the JC survey and be able to showcase all the documentation in an easy way.

Ready for TJC survey at any time, knowing all documents are there.

Increase in productivity
All tasks related to creating, organizing, finding and analyzing TJC required documentation, information and data are significant time wasters and high costs are now associated with poor data management systems and processes when using paper folders and handwritten inspection. It helps employees effectively manage their time.

Preparing a healthcare facility for a future with Mobile Work Environment
Healthcare organizations are using mobile devices for other function within their work environment and the younger generation is used to these devices. It will increase retention and improve productivity. They will have access to the necessary data to do their job and will not need to depend on any central manual filing system. Having a centralized, well-organized system of accessing data on the shared cloud drive will provide mobile users with the ability to get their work done efficiently at any location within the healthcare facility.

Go digital; save cost, time and environment
From the cost of paper to consumables, paper based systems are more expensive than paperless. Healthcare facilities can also take advantage by freeing up space by eliminating storage shelves, filing cabinets used to maintain facility compliance documents.

Online documents are easier to locate, can be updated and kept intact on a regular basis and don’t require too many hours that goes in filing, managing, organizing, reviewing paper documents. Fear of loss of records is another concern that the organizations come across which may get them do unnecessary rework of tasks adding to further cost and wastage of time. Paper is time consuming to manage; when paper is filed it may not be accurately referenced or misfiled (or in some cases never filed).

Go paperless; Go Green and save the environment. You can save not only the environment but your money at the exact same time by going paperless.

Up skill the knowledgebase on TJC requirements
Clear understanding of TJC requirement, what documents are required provides ease and clarity to each user, and new hires, on how to access required critical compliant documents, data and information quickly. Information can be easily circulated within the organization and be readily provided at the time of survey.
