Description

 The Accreditation Council Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) has instituted new accreditation guidelines with primary focus on quality patient care and patient safety during transitions of care. Numerous studies cite patient care handoffs as a key cause of medical errors and the need to focus on process improvement. Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) GME has focused on making patient care transition the foundation for improving patient care, as well as, medical education.
 

BCM , in a collaborative venture with ConsultLink Inc (founded by a BCM faculty member), has developed the CLE (Clinical Learning Environment) 360 initiative to leverage mobile and digital technology in improving transitions of care, communication and education. CLE 360 was designed by college faculty and residents using the ConsultLink Care Collaboration PlatformTM. It is first deploying and managing the patient care transitions at BCM’s multiple affiliate hospital sites. The next phase creates the nexus for patient care, communication and education functionality based on data analysis from the initial deployment.

All stakeholders benefit from the nucleus created:

  • GME – oversight and execution of education in the clinical environment, data capture for overall activity and results analysis feeding curriculum adjustments. (i.e., the ability to view analytics of procedure logs in real-time by supervisors to direct and optimize the learner’s clinical training).
  • Medical Education – facilitating competency-based learning via data capture of diseases managed by all levels of learners and each individual. The data entered as part of the handoff workflow can subsequently drive learner-directed and curricular needs.
  • Physicians and trainees – providing task management functionality to improve rounding efficiency. Handoff details can be accessed and created from any device throughout the day such as when patient care plans are being formed at the bedside.
  • Clinical site – ability to receive granular feedback on near misses or adverse events by incorporating hard stops for reporting as part of daily handoff workflow within the app.
  • Faculty – participate in real-time remote supervision of residents such as during patient handoffs with the ability to provide immediate feedback at a preview stage
