If you ever have to be hospitalized, you\u2019ll certainly want to be cared for at a place that delivers quality health care using the latest technology available. \u201cUPMC\u2019s vision of quality is for every patient to receive the right care, at the right time, in the right way \u2014 every time,\u201d says Tami Minnier, RN, and chief quality officer for UPMC.\n\u201cTechnology lets us serve patients more efficiently and accurately. Most of all, we\u2019re able to give patients greater control of their health care.\u201d\nHere are just two of the ways UPMC hospitals are delivering on that goal.\n\n\nSmartRoom\u00ae Technology brings all essential data related to your care to your bedside. Its computerized software programs give caregivers fingertip access to all the information essential to your care \u2014 from your electronic medical records to the tests you\u2019ll need that day. This concept simplifies workflow and makes documentation of your care faster and easier. Each room has two screens: one for your caregivers, and another for you to access email, entertainment, and a vast library of patient education videos and information.\n\n\n\nGiving the right meds at the right time. \u201cWe begin when you\u2019re admitted with an electronic assessment of your current medications and how they\u2019re being taken,\u201d explains Jacqueline Dailey, UPMC\u2019s vice president for Solutions for Medical Science, Research, and Patient Centered Accountable Care. \u201cAs medications are adjusted or eliminated during your stay, this information is instantly available to all your physicians \u2014 from your family doctor to the specialists caring for you. That\u2019s especially important if you transition from one level of care to another, such as intensive to acute care.\u201d An added layer of safety: both a pharmacist and the nurse administering the medications verify any new medication orders from your doctors. Throughout your stay, you\u2019ll receive comprehensive instructions on your medications.
