Texas Health Resources is a 14 hospital integrated delivery system in North Texas. In addition, they are Stage 7 at their 14 hospitals and also received the Davies Award in 2013. As a national leader and innovator in Health IT, this presentation will discuss how Texas Health Resources re-engineered patient care activities to improve patient outcomes, focused on process improvement activities, high reliability principles and the need to provide a standardized patient experience at every hospital, for every patient, every time. Termed, Reliable Care Blueprinting, the discussion will focus around how technology facilitated and enabled the ability to hardwire evidenced-based practice within 18 hospitals, design teams to define the clinical specs and requirements, the process to enable the EHR to support these specs and how the implementation was measured and reported through hospital leadership.
Discuss the need for Reliable Care Blueprinting (RCB) and how Texas Health Resources is using technology to support hardwiring of clinical best practices across 14 hospitals
Explain the strategic and operational tactics for the entire life cycle of RCB - design, build, implementation, monitoring/measurement
Identify challenges and lessons learned through deployment of RCB in managing clinical workflows and the EHR and technical requirements to support the work
