Objectives

This solution aims to:

  • Measure patient acuity relating to clinical hours required for care
  • Predict labour hours required by acuity, preset nurse patient ratios and HPPD targets
  • Compare acuity requirements to minimum staffing levels and preset nurse patient ratios
  • Distribute equitable workloads to clinical staff
  • Measure bed utilisation for each shift highlighting levels of churn
  • Identify acuity & efficiency trends
  • Identify peaks and troughs in patient acuity across days of the week and shifts of each day
  • Provide ward acuity profiles for re-engineering rosters and redefining nurse patient ratios and HPPD targets
  • Produce efficiency reports which compare achieved HPPD to preset targets
  • Enable development of acuity based budgets
  • Measure labour costs for specific episodes of care per DRG
  • Track variances in patient outcomes and their impact on nursing hours required for care
  • Enable benchmarking of HPPD measures

Reports Generated

In excess of 100 standard reports / graphs are produced to manage nursing workloads and to measure the efficiency of clinical nursing services.

  • Work management reports
  • Efficiency reports and graphs
  • Acuity profile reports
  • DRG specific nursing intensity reports
  • Demand Projection and capacity planning graphs

All TrendCare reports and graphs can be saved as PDF, text or CSV format e.g. for transfer into a spreadsheet.

Data reliability is maintained and evaluated through:

  • Comprehensive training
  • Regular inter-rater reliability testing
  • Regular data integrity checks
  • Review of patient outcomes
  • Review of user satisfaction
  • Ongoing research and development
  • Benchmarking studies
