Prophecy News & Events

Next stop – San Francisco for the ANIA Conference April 21-23

Posted by Meredith Juengel on April 20, 2016 at 10:03 PM

ANIA_2016.jpegWill your team be attending the American Nursing Informatics Association (ANIA) Annual Conference in San Francisco this week?  If so, please visit the Pacific Concourse to see the Prophecy poster Using Technology to Improve Nurse Hiring Practices (# 056), which highlights our validated approach to selecting, onboarding and retaining the best nurses.  

Prophecy’s research fits perfectly with the 2016 ANIA conference theme – Bridging Informatics and Patient Care.  

Nursing informatics (NI), which integrates nursing science with information management and analytical sciences to better integrate data, information and experience into nursing practice, is increasingly becoming an executive leadership function in many health systems. No surprise, as research from the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) found that the integration of NI increases the overall quality of patient care over time.  Nearly two-thirds of respondents indicated that having an NI involved in the analysis, design, implementation, optimization and selection process for clinical systems has a high degree of impact on quality outcomes and a substantial positive impact on the reduction of never events - adverse events that are serious and largely preventable.

As NI leaders identify technology-based solutions proven to impact patient care, assessment tools for selecting and retaining one of their most valuable resource – the nursing staff – should be a top priority.  Health systems using Prophecy’s validated nurse assessment report measurable outcomes, including:

  • Improved retention rates
  • Shortened orientation cycles
  • Streamlined onboarding

Prophecy clients experience 70% and higher reductions in turnover rates, better candidate selection, more targeted onboarding, and increased nurse engagement.  These positive results translate into improvements in staff and patient communication, higher HCAHPS scores and better patient outcomes.   

Please stop by the Pacific Concourse during the poster viewing sessions to discuss Prophecy’s research studies in more detail.
