Making the Move to Mobile – Stony Brook Prepares for the Future
Health IT leaders today strive to give mobile clinicians the tools they need to improve how they coordinate care among many staff members. And for good reason: Patient care is strengthened with technology that untethers providers from stationary computers that prevent them from spending adequate time at the bedside. The challenge becomes balancing the need for effective mobile communication with security requirements from HIPAA and HITECH to protect ePHI and other sensitive data. Making the move to mobile is a tall order since it affects so many roles, devices, and workflows. Stony Brook Medicine, an academic medical center in Long Island, N.Y., has taken a multi-pronged approach to preparing for the hospital’s mobile future. Join this session to learn about the success Stony Brook has had and the organization’s future plans to support a completely mobile workforce over the next three years.
- Discuss why mobility doesn’t mean a single device type like smartphones, and the mobile mix Stony Brook is pursuing
- Explain how Stony Brook plans to tackle top mobility challenges, including integrations with related care and information systems
- Describe how Stony Brook works with its five health sciences schools to train future physicians to be empowered by mobile devices and establish an IT-focused physician leader in each department
- Identify the approach Stony Brook is taking to evaluate and support better workflows for groups with different roles, needs, and employment statuses
- Investigate how IT leadership brings together the many segments into one big picture to lead the organization toward mobility
