Using Quick Submit to Optimize Experiences for Frontline Staff

November 30, 2018



In 2017, Barnes-Jewish Hospital embarked on a journey to improve how staff interacted with their risk management software. The goal was to improve reporting, staff interaction and change the overall perception that the electronic system was “burdensome” to submit to. Learn how a Quick Submit form was created to minimize the time spent away from the bedside, while maximizing reporting.

Join us in this webinar as the presenters share their journey about:

  • Evaluation of current time spent by front line staff on safety incidents
  • Implementing a new form by comparing "need to know" with "nice to know" information
  • Results from the system changes
