if it ain t broke1
If it ain’t broke…..

97% of admission hx started- only 10 % completed


Nurses “live” in HED – can’t we put this in HED???

No reminders if not finished

8 hours is not long enough time to get it done.

Must leave Admit History form and go to HEO to enter orders

It doesn’t track who entered each piece of data so I start a new one even if there is a draft

When I am worried about keeping patient alive upon admission, I shouldn’t have to document discharge plans

Redundant information collection- Patient complained they have already answered these

No one looks at it! This is just a waste of time

vision and goals
Vision and Goals
  • Collect data once and pass to all systems and users who need to view
  • Collect data by time it will be needed
  • Minimize data collection during critical stabilization period (1st 1-2 hrs.)

Meet minimum regulatory requirements

Optimum workflow process associated with admission phase of care (up to 24 hrs. max.)


tried to format in hed


Amount of scrolling up and down and back and forth to see data and what was incomplete was impossible

Future: Admit History data imported into HED

decreased need to toggle to heo wiz
Decreased Need to Toggle to HEO/WIZ

Auto generated orders and alerts eliminate need for nurse to enter some orders in HEO/WIZ

not a form to complete but data to collect
Not a form to complete but data to collect

Positive Social Work screen generates Social Work notification

Data displayed on OPC, Team Summary, Ancillary Dashboards

Immunization screen generates order for vaccine and scheduled for 10am next morning

Religion, tobacco status, and other information, stored and retrieved on subsequent admissions

Hover over indicator to see what Admission requirement is not yet completed (ie section 1,2,3)

= done within correct time frame

= time frame to complete nearly over

= time frame to complete has expired (BUT action still needed!)

New Present On Admission Screening

Awareness is Key to Improved Communication Among Team Members


Positives will trigger various decision support responses:

    • Pacemaker/ICD triggers HEO decision support w/ MRI orders
    • Dialysis prohibits some renal dose adjustment warnings in HEO
    • Pressure Ulcers on admission will display on the PUPS dashboard but an orders will need to be entered in HEO/WIZ if WOC specialists needs to see the patient.
    • CPAP home use will trigger protocol order for Respiratory Care evaluation
    • Medication Pump usage will be shared as appropriate with other disciplines
    • Patient Pregnant, Patient Lactating sent to Pharmacy for decision support on medications .

CPAP Summary –What You Need to Know

  • Patients that use CPAP at home need to use CPAP in the Hospital
  • RT will evaluate machine - will probably use VUMC equipment to assure proper functioning
  • In addition:
    • Increased vigilance when general anesthesia, sedation, or intravenous (IV) analgesia/opioids are required.
    • Elevate head of bed 30-40 degrees if not contraindicated
    • Communicate that the patient has obstructive sleep apnea during handover to other care providers as well as in transfer to ancillary departments

A Protocol order will be generated from the Nursing Admission History when the nurse documents a positive response from the patient .

“Home CPAP Evaluation and Initiation” order will generate to the Respiratory Therapy Department and the respiratory therapist (RT) will evaluate and initiate therapy at the patients bedtime.


Leaving a question blank or selecting “Unable to complete” triggers indicators on the inpatient whiteboard.

Global Immunization

It our responsibility to screen patients for appropriate vaccines and offervaccines to patients that meet positive screening criteria.

Patients always have the right to decline.



  • 5% - 20% of population in US gets the flu
  • 200,000 people are hospitalized from seasonal flu-related complications
  • between 1976 -2006, flu-associated deaths range from a low of about 3,000 to a high of about 49,000 people.

The 2011-2012 flu vaccine will protect against the three influenza viruses that research indicates will be most common during the season. This includes an influenza A (H1N1) virus, an influenza A (H3N2) virus, and an influenza B virus.

Flu season October till March 1 and everyone six months and older should get vaccinated.


FUTURE: If selected that pt has had an immunization, it will automatically update the immunization record as a historical vaccine.

Had flu shot elsewhere= automatic update to immunization record

+ screen = automatic order in heo/wiz

Positive screens will result in an order for the flu vaccine being automatically generated in HEO/WIZ when the admission history is saved. The vaccine will be scheduled in Admin Rx with frequency of 1XBYRX and Pharmacist will administer.

PCCU, heme/onc, ID, rheumatology and cardiology patients who qualify for the flu shot will have alert sent to a StarPanel worklist and be evaluated by the physician staff/clinical pharmacy.


In VCH, the Pharmacist will administer the vaccines and document administration in Admin Rx.


Care Organizer and Admin Rx will list the frequency for the vaccine as “1X by RX” to indicate that the Pharmacist will administer.

The pharmacist will bring medication instead of it being delivered.

Nutrition Dashboard

Positive screen trigger notification to nutrition services via the dashboard


Learning Readiness/ADLs

Information will display on OPC

and eventually feed Readmission screen and Patient Education and Engagement Record (PEER)

iii discharge functional screens
III Discharge/Functional Screens

Physician will be notified of positive Functional screens as only providers may order Rehab evaluations in Tennessee


can i do all sections at once
Can I do all sections at once?


The admit history may be completed at one time if that is practical.

Important thing is to get the data collected.

Previously all data had to be collected within 8 hours.

Now have up to 24hrs to collect.

admission history indicator
Admission History Indicator

Not in nurses current workflow to verify Admission History is completed.

Indicator on whiteboard should help


Even if past 24 hours,

collect the data

The data is important.

future changes
Future Changes

Notification Bar at top of CWS to display dashboard of patient assignment while in HED or HEO/WIZ or any application. This will make it easier to see indicators and to navigate – coming in 2012

Braden Tool in HED instead of HEO/WIZ is projected to be available soon


“Nothing motivates more than success. We need to define and engineer visible performance improvement. “
