8 Reasons Why IT matters to Patient Safety
1. Quality Healthcare needs Quality Decisions
Quality Healthcare is about making quality decisions for your patients. This is obvious enough but to make quality decisions you need more than qualifications and experience, you need access to the collective experience of the organisation and the right information at the right time.
High quality decision making – both on the ground and in the boardroom requires access to real time information about the current state and access to both historical and predictive data. While these are linked, the former is a learning event, the latter is a predictive event.
Learning from the past, strengthens your future decisions and timely data about the present, enables you to more accurately decide on the correct course of action.
