EdgeHuddle: A Case Study for Nursing Productivity and Retention
Huddles are essential to care delivery but have become a data collection and reporting ritual rather than a platform for action. EdgeHuddle transforms huddles by curating real-time checklists that generate levers of action, providing
care teams with the activities they need for patient care.
Despite the complexity of health systems, Nursing is historically good at informing staff of clinical priorities and strategies. The challenge for clinicians at all levels is the time required to collect the data that informs decisions and what action to take once reported.
Huddles are a perfect microcosm of this challenge. The amount of time spent on huddles can vary depending on the organization and the type of huddle. According to a survey by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), the average length of daily safety huddles was around 13 minutes, ranging from 5-30 minutes, depending on the hospital.
However, it's important to note that these small amounts of time do not necessarily reflect the efficiency or effectiveness of the huddle. Managers spend untenable hours collecting and preparing data. An equal amount of time is spent determining what the data means and how to act on it.
EdgeHuddle, Edgility's answer to huddle preparation and activity development, transforms the process by intelligently curating data to define and orchestrate appropriate action.
• Decant the data collection, compilation, and reporting functions from high-value assets, allowing them to focus on providing patient care, staff development, and support.
•Leverage AI technology to curate real-time checklists that generate levers of action.
•Improve staff retention and employee satisfaction by removing low-value administrative work and providing more time for patient care.
