Creating the Hospital of the Future Through The Accreditation Process
Nicklaus Children’s Hospital in Miami, part of the Nicklaus Children’s Health System is one of the most prominent pediatric providers in the nation and abroad. But given the fact that over 60 percent of its patients are covered by the Medicaid program means it not only provides a crucial service to South Florida, but must perform at its financial peak at all times in order to remain sustainable.
In 2016, Nicklaus Children’s switched accrediting bodies to DNV GL Healthcare, part of its move toward reaching new paradigms in culture and performance. This new partnership recognizes and encourages their journey toward becoming a true hospital of the future: standardizing safety procedures with automation, introducing new technologies from robots to Bluetooth identification tags, and freeing staff to focus on patients knowing that other processes were standardized, automated and safe. The result has been increased quality of care delivered at Nicklaus Children’s, improved staff morale and teamwork – and a “virtual cruise ship” that sailed within the hospital’s walls inviting staff to get on board with this exciting new vision.
