In 2020/21 short-staffing—and the need to quickly redeploy staff around the organization—proved to be a tricky prospect with some unexpected glitches.

One lesson: Don't let an outdated approach to access limit your responsiveness to staffing.Taking some of the lessons learned over the past months, it's important to take a careful look at how your current Electronic Health Record (EHR) access rules are working (or not):

  • Could you benefit from having a global "nursing" position, for example, that would allow for more flexible access from floor to floor / department to department?
  • Should you consider implementing 'My Experience' (Cerner) that includes provisions for clinicians to dynamically change roles and visibility from shift to shift?
  • Can your IT group provide a more granular approach to access, extending visibility into new or different documentation options. (i.e. Still within iView, but with different visibility into navigator bands, fields, etc.?
