Soarian Clinical Notes
Taking us where no Northwest Hospital Staff has gone before…..
Can you tell if this patient is progressing toward Expected Outcomes?
We see some of what the staff did during this shift, but not where the patient is related to their goals….
Writing a good Clinical Note is a skill
which takes thought and practice but it will
save time in the long run and our communications will be much improved !
One Giant Step…
If NWH policy states that we are a “Documentation by exception system”,
Then, we don’t have to do “what we have always done,”
So, let’s take back the clock!
It is time to leverage the power of technology to improve the quality of care we are providing for our patients!
