Members of our clinical staff are about to have 24/7 access to the most advanced resource tool providing evidence-based clinical information that will help save time, standardize care and improve workflow.
Starting this month, Lippincott Solutions will be available for all Ohio’s Hospice clinical staff members providing detailed step-by-step instructions, up-to-date clinical content, videos and photos, skills checklists and tests – all available on mobile as well as desktop devices. Lippincott Solutions also offers patient materials including handouts about medications as well as a thorough and very specific cultural guide for end-of-life care preferences and expectations.
Ohio’s Hospice Senior Director for Education and Staff Development, Julie Wickline, is excited to introduce staff to this new resource. “Thirty members of our nursing staff from areas of leadership, quality, research, and education were involved in reviewing all of our policies and evaluating the Lippincott offerings. This tool enables all of us to employ evidence based techniques as they evolve. It is detailed, searchable and easily accessible.”
Every clinician will have quick access through a desktop icon, an intranet link, or a mobile app. A tutorial on how to use Lippincott Solutions will be made available to staff at the time of the product launch so that all can become acquainted with the wealth of knowledge now at their fingertips.
Terri Gross, Senior Director of Mission Excellence states, “This will assure that patients and families across Ohio’s Hospice are receiving standardized, evidence-based care that is in alignment with Pathway of Excellence standards. With the launch of Lippincott Solutions, Ohio’s Hospice, Inc. clinicians will all share a primary source that details over 2,000 step-by-step patient care instructions on proper technique, equipment, safety, complications, and more.”
Look for OHI’s Lippincott launch in July of 2017.
