These Exceptional Nurses Share Their Thoughts on Improving Health Care Functions.
Bloomington, MN: For 40 years now, Creative Health Care Management (CHCM) has been helping partners improve quality, safety, and patient experiences by enhancing nurse-based workplace operations. After all, these professionals play a crucial role in ensuring hospital or clinic success. The results have been astounding, positively impacting financial performance and physician satisfaction.
The team focuses on three core components:
- Relationship-based care (RBC): This operational framework acts as a culture transformation model. Its goal is to improve every relationship within an organization. Ultimately, it optimizes nurses’ relationships with their patients, colleagues, and themselves.
- Magnet® preparation services: Contrary to popular belief, the Magnet® Recognition Program does not merely function as an award or badge of honor. Instead, it shows nurses’ commitment and excellence in their fields.
- Competency assessment: This ongoing process accounts for development, knowledge and skills maintenance, continuous learning, remediation, and redevelopment. Various providers use techniques like performance-based systems, online programs, and competency fairs.
When asked about the achievements of two of their nurses, Marketing and Business Development Executive Officer Aaron Garner replied:
“We are proud of our nurses, Marky Medeiros and Amber Orton, for their newly written journal pieces.
Marky is an expert at aligning people and processes. This skill lets her identify emerging issues and gauge the effectiveness of organizational interventions. With her help, CHCM expects measurable improvement and evidence-based practices for clients. She partners directly with health care providers to design improvement guidelines.
Amber shows a deep understanding of data and keen attention to detail. She has an exceptional background as a clinician and decision-maker within a large team. She is an expert in unlocking the full potential of individuals and departments. When Amber works with health care providers, the institutions benefit from her vision and mentoring.”
