Virtual Nursing: Improving Patient and Staff Experience

PX Marketplace – 2pm ET / 1pm CT / 12pm MT / 11am PT – NewYork-Presbyterian is committed to excellence in patient care, research, education and community service. The virtual integrated program was piloted on 10 units across 2 hospitals for a five-month period. Due to its success in improving patient and nurse satisfaction, the program has since expanded across the enterprise. An interprofessional steering committee was created representing nursing, quality, nursing professional development, nursing informatics, IT Digital Health, Epic, patient experience, human resources, and legal. The virtual nurse’s role is to support the staff and drive the patient care experience. They perform the same tasks and documentation in Epic as an inpatient nurse with the exception of a physical or hands-on assessment. The goal of setting patients for success towards self-management and compliance with treatment or medication, while still at the hospital and can make a difference on how they will cope and manage their health condition when they transition back to the community. Join this webinar to learn more about NewYork-Presbyterian’s virtual nurse program.
