A study with the Duquesne University School of Nursing found that when a patient engagement platform is designed to support staff workflows, the completion of education assignments by patients can be expedited and materially reduce hospital length of stay. Patients in postpartum units at the studied hospital must complete state-mandated education videos prior to discharge.
The facility deployed a new education strategy using SONIFI Health’s interactive patient engagement solution and optimized nurse rounding protocols with more consistent education messaging. As a result of these new strategies, the study group was measured to have an average length of stay that was 8-plus hours shorter than that of a control group without the interventions in place.
Length of stay impacts facilitated by the patient engagement platform include:
- Expedited Education Assignments.
- Faster Completions.
- Efficient Discharges.
