Limitations and risks from inefficient systems

Waste is a common problem in the U.S. healthcare system, with hospital systems continuing to look for ways to be more efficient. Many have turned to mergers and acquisitions as the solution. But often such consolidation falls short, leading to specialized departmental systems and tools that are fragmented and unable to interoperate.

That means your clinicians may focus more on trying to make their tools work when they could be spending that time at the bedside. For example, you’ve invested heavily in your electronic health record (EHR) system, but your clinicians may have to exit that system constantly to find needed information, guidance, or tools. And if you’re developing and maintaining clinical content and guidance in-house, care team members will need extra time to document requirements outside of your EHR.

Wasteful Spend

Roughly one-third of all U.S. healthcare spending is wasteful, providing no benefit to patients.1

Ongoing Consolidation

87% of healthcare executives said their organizations expected to explore or complete merger or acquisition deals in the next 12-18 months.2

EHR Limitations

Research shows satisfaction with EHR clinical decisions is low, ranging from 28-39% for the three most popular ones.3

In the end, productivity declines while the potential for errors increases. With Elsevier, you’ll improve outcomes and cut costs with new technology and systems that can be integrated into existing workflows for streamlined support of your care teams’ responsibilities.

With Elsevier, you’ll save time and direct your team’s efforts where they can most benefit your organization. And you can be confident that the guidance driving your patient care is consistent, and accurate.

As a result, you will promote greater clinical competence and confidence to drive improved patient satisfaction. This seamless integration into familiar workflows, tools, and systems also fosters easier adoption and regular use by your care teams to support the delivery of consistent, high-quality care and an improved patient experience.

With Elsevier, you’ll have the information and insights you need to improve performance in the areas where it's needed most.

Drive improved outcomes and reduce costs with integrated processes

Cutting costs and improving outcomes is difficult when the use of specialized and fragmented tools and systems is eroding productivity and causing errors. Yet, the most successful organizations are addressing these inefficiencies head on. To tackle them, you need to be able to streamline how nurses perform their daily responsibilities while giving them greater confidence in their ability to excel in clinical practice. At the same time, you need to maximize the value of investments in existing systems and tools.
