PANAMA CITY, FL., “February 17, 2016” (Business Wire) – Wood County Hospital (WCH) announces a successful implementation and go-live of the G2 Works scalable cloud analytics technology platform; providing data-driven information to advance quality and operational efficiency initiatives.
G2 Works, the Cloud Analytics as a Service for Healthcare company, has deployed in record time, an advanced cloud analytics platform coupled with services to bolster WCH’s analytics strategy. This analytics engagement will enable WCH to 1) rapidly make efficient changes to clinical, operational and financial processes, 2) recognize significant returns in both hard and soft costs, and 3) enhance their patient care experience.
From Skepticism to Savings
WCH, like many mid-sized care environment facilities, found themselves pushing off their Business Intelligence (BI) needs due to factors endemic to most hospitals. “We didn’t have the time, the deep financial pockets, or extensive resources to develop a BI reporting function. When G2 Works met with us and shared their vision of what they could provide to us, I was initially very skeptical,” recalls Joanne White, CIO, Wood County Hospital.
“We’ve had many vendors make grand presentations, only to learn there were limits or barriers to success. But, out-of-the-gate with G2 Works, we were able to easily see areas for immediate clinical process improvement. Our preliminary findings estimate that we’ll save our clinicians 30% of their time in retrospective reporting in the ED. They’ll now be able to spend this time with patients, improving the care-giving experience at WCH”.
WCH patients also indirectly benefit from the cloud analytics with smoother operational processes. As Dawn Mason, RN, BS, MSN, Director of Quality and Accreditation explains, “the implementation of the G2 Works product provides our team with a real-time composite of the patients that are within our facility. Not only does this allow our staff to prioritize their work in meeting insurance utilization review deadlines, but also allows them to work more efficiently. The G2 Works product eliminates the need to look at patients’ demographics and insurance payers in our EHR system separately, as it provides all of that information in a color-coded and tabulated, “one-stop-shop” format.”
When asked about the implementation success at WCH, Bruce Grambley, CEO at G2 Works shared, “G2 Works is proud of the speed at which we deploy actionable information to the right caregiver at the right time.” We are committed to providing clinicians with actionable information at the point of care which will reduce unnecessary interventions, help eliminate wastes, and drive down the “real” cost of healthcare. Ultimately, due to G2 Work’s technology, providers will be able to deliver better patient outcomes and improve the patient experience.”
