Taking Employee Rounds to a New Level
One of the first responsibilities of today’s healthcare leaders is to know their workforce. That requires an in-depth knowledge of five generations currently in the workplace and how those generations directly impact competency, compliance, communication and ultimately patient satisfaction and experience. The newest members of the healthcare workforce are technologically savvy, focused on professional growth, and genuinely wish to make a difference in the workforce. One important caveat is that they want to make a difference sooner.
Considerations for Critical Care Leader Rounding

The admission of a loved one into a critical care area can put a family into “crisis” mode, especially when a hospital stay is unexpected. Until the status of the patient is known, the priorities for the patient and family revolve around two areas – information and support. Family members at the bedside are often tasked to keep the extended family and friends informed about the situation or to field multiple calls from those with well-meaning intentions.  This is not a time to ask the family how your team is doing.

Adapting your Rounding Program During COVID-19 to Address Patient and Employees Needs

The COVID-19 outbreak is impacting all Americans in some manner, including those of us here at Nobl. We are in our 4th week of working virtually. We are fortunate that our business lends itself to a virtual platform, but our healthcare partners at the point of care do not share this luxury. Facing this global threat is taking courage, commitment, and sacrifice from the entire healthcare system.   

Considerations for Oncology Leader Rounding

No one wants to hear a diagnosis of “cancer” but with medical research and new treatment breakthroughs, more and more survivors are winning the battle for long and healthy lives. But until the prognosis and outcome are known, patients and families have many questions and need strong support from the healthcare community. Patient “transitions” are a key component of cancer care as patients are referred from their primary care provider and navigate through a team of specialists who assure that body systems are protected while aggressive treatments are aimed at the disease.

Time management while working from home

The nation is pulling together to help contain and eliminate the novel coronavirus Covid-19. Millions across the nation are stepping up their handwashing technique and frequency, maintaining social distancing of 6 feet, and “sheltering in place.”  Nobl made the decision to begin virtual work on March 5th and all of our employees have moved to their homes. For some, this is the first time that they have not worked within the structure of the office environment for more than a day or two.

Does your digital rounding platform effectively integrate with your EMR?

In the last decade, the healthcare industry saw the rapid adoption of Electronic Medical Records (EMR) which was spurred by the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act of 2009. Today 95 percent of hospitals in the United States have adopted an EMR.

We often get asked, does the Nobl Rounding Platform integrate with our EMR?
