All-in-one mobile devices increase nurse satisfaction at Truman Medical

Truman Medical Centers needed to optimize nursing workflow while increasing staff satisfaction and improving patient safety. The devices nurses were using, such as pagers, old CareMobile devices and health system-issued phones, were nearing the end of their productive life. The time was right to implement new mobile technology, with a priority on allowing nurses to protect Protected Health Information while texting providers. Truman Medical Centers and health IT giant Cerner have been working together since 1992, and that agreement took a big step in 2015 with the creation of the KC One Health Innovation Alliance. This alliance included a "living lab" goal that has allowed for focusing on solving top issues Truman Medical Centers was experiencing by using the latest solutions from Cerner. The Cerner CareAware Connect project is an example of what it means to be that living lab for both caregivers and patients by adding more robust features and capabilities to streamline the nursing workflow, ultimately giving nurses time back to spend at the patient bedside, said Amy Peters, RN, chief nursing officer at Truman Medical Centers.
