Healthcare-Associated Infections (CAUTI and CLABSI) Prevention Using QR Code for Bundle Audits
This poster will be displayed in conjunction with the HIMSS23 Workforce ConneXtions. Posters will be available for viewing through the entirety of the event. Poster presenters will be available for questions from 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM.
Healthcare-associated infections play a significant role in patient outcomes. Catheter urinary tract infections and central line bloodstream infections have been prevalent issues at our hospital. The current tool is not user-friendly or offers the ability to extract and analyze the data for process improvement. I have developed a Microsoft form with a QR code that allows frontline staff to easily input compliance of bundle components. This simplifies the process and time that it takes to complete the audit and report data close to real-time into a dashboard and daily email report. We can now interpret data to focus on areas for improvement and change behavior. The tool has been popular with staff, reduced HAIs, and inspired further innovation.
- Design a compliance audit tool that is user-friendly and supports efficient and effective staff workflow
- Evaluate and illustrate data visualizations in a dashboard to make connections for areas of process improvement
- Operationalize change management techniques and apply design skills to technology
- Collaborate with multi-disciplinary teams in multiple locations to determine a system-wide action plan and review strategy/policy
