TEMPO: Together Everyone Improves Patient Outcomes

TEMPO: Together Everyone Improves Patient Outcomes, an initiative undertaken at Saint Vincent Hospital in November of 2014, has transformed patient care at the hospital, resulting in better patient outcomes through improved interdisciplinary communications and organizational efficiencies. This journey began as a project to enhance communication white boards in patient rooms and evolved into the development of electronic patient story boards to convey critical, patient-specific information to key stakeholders in the delivery of patient care. Project leaders assigned to this effort collaborated with all levels of the organization to determine what pieces of information would facilitate the delivery of safe and effective care.
