While Gastroenterologists face concerns that are common across the healthcare spectrum, there are also concerns unique to GI practices. Risk reduction, reputation enhancement, and reimbursement are all critical components in the success of a GI practice, but there are specific concerns that go beyond that. The SE Healthcare team realized the need to expand upon the benefits of the Physician Empowerment Suite to bring Gastroenterologists a tool that really focused on their deepest concerns.
So, what’s the solution?
Infection prevention is always top of mind for Gastroenterologists, and the SE team understands the importance of taking a proactive approach to preventing infection. That’s why we’ve created the Infection Prevention Clinical Effectiveness Survey. This survey tool, designed by medical professionals with decades of experience in the GI field, can help measure clinical best practices, outcomes, patient engagement, and patient safety. All leading to the ability to prevent infection and enhance the ability to navigate the three R’s (risk, reputation, and reimbursement).
With the guidance of subject matter experts, the SE team carefully crafted questions and resources to help Gastroenterologists uncover critical insights. The survey includes twenty questions divided into five categories. Those categories include:
- Standards / Policy
- General Infection Prevention
- Education / Training / Competency
- Management / Leadership / Organizations / Systems
- Increased operational efficiency
- Improved patient safety and satisfaction
- Immediate patient support
- Reduction in bad debt
- Fewer malpractice claims, payouts, and related expenses
- Optimized reimbursement from payor negotiations
SE Healthcare recently partnered with the Society of Gastroenterology nurses and Associates as a part of the Infection Prevention Champions Program creating by SGNA. The goal of the program is for each Gastroenterology facility across the country to identify a champion who will then keep his or her peers up-to-date with the most current news, guidelines, and information about infection prevention. The champion will also promote adherence to best practices within their unit with the support of their administrative and clerical team.
