12:00pm - 1:00pmTuesday, February 12
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
CHRISTUS Health implemented computer workstation single sign-on (SSO) in 19 hospitals to expedite EHR access. We assessed workflow and financial value of SSO in reducing clinician time at the keyboard logging in. Login duration after SSO implementation was compared to pre-SSO. Dollar value of time saved were calculated for physicians, nurses and ancillary clinicians. Annually 49,057 hours (4088 shifts) of mixed clinician time were liberated from keyboard for the enterprise, a mean of 2584 hours (215 shifts) per facility per year. The annual dollar value of clinician time liberated from keyboard to care for patients was $3.2 million for 19 facilities ($168,474 per hospital).
