Student research paper
The purpose of this project is to evaluate an alternative solution for the current process of obtaining data from patients with implanted cardiac devices. The cardiology physicians have been frustrated by our partnership with an external organization to monitor and report information obtained through remote monitoring. Ideally the staff would be clinic employees who would work directly with the patients and physicians to obtain the information necessary for high quality patient care and be accountable to the standards set by our practice. This would be a significant process change that was evaluated from a financial standpoint to demonstrate a positive return on investment if implemented. The project also addressed the staffing challenges that make a vendor partnership necessary by creating a training program to ensure adequate staffing with the appropriate skill set to implement the proposed change. The goal is to create a process that will provide financially sustainable, high quality patient care for patients by creating an opportunity for learning a desirable and in-demand skill set.
