Kate ONeill, MSN, RN's insight:

Think again.. While Pt Engagement is key for Meaningful Use and ACA, the struggle is.. how can we care for our elderly family members and expect them to be "engaged"  in this new process when they have limited computer skills, don't understand Gmail or hospital portals? This all sounds great on paper.."Patient Engagement", but we need serious changes to the current EHR landscape to make caring for our parents and care coordination much easier. How about we start with computer classes in the senior centers? how about we teach seniors  how to get email  or log onto to the internet for starters??

bacigalupe's curator insight, July 22, 2013 4:50 PM

Checklists garnered well-deserved publicity as a result of their use in the Keystone ICU project, a multicenter study in which a checklist of evidence-based infection control interventions was implemented to reduce the risk of central line–associated bloodstream infections in intensive care unit patients. This intervention achieved a stunning reduction in line infections, with many ICUs completely eliminating line infections for months at a time. An AHRQ-funded initiative subsequently disseminated the use of the Keystone ICU interventions nationwide, and initial results indicate further sustained success. A similar level of success was achieved through implementation of a surgical safety checklist, which included specific steps during induction of anesthesia, surgical timeout, and transfer of the patient out of the operating room. Remarkable reductions in surgical mortality and morbidity were achieved across a wide range of clinical settings. Further research has investigated the use of checklists to improve safety at the time of hospital discharge, improve transfer of information during in-hospital handoffs, and improve the care of intensive care unit and trauma patients.
