Healthcare Dynamics - Strategic Services


Efficiency Enhancement

“The first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself.”
Mark Caine

Work flow analysis

An organization's ability to learn, and translate that learning into action rapidly, is the ultimate competitive advantage.
Jack Welch

Research has shown that nursing activities are often chaotic and rarely organised due to the pace and range of activity that is required. Adjustments in the environment, resource deployment and technology can improve efficiency and productivity with improved workflow the employees experience a greater sense of work satisfaction, reduction in staff turnover and cost containment is achieved.

Resource Utilisation

“Time is the scarcest resource and unless it is managed nothing else can be managed.”
Peter F. Drucker
 
Experience has shown that silos exist in healthcare organisations breaking down the effective utilisation of all resources during busy times. Lateral thinking and creative organisation of the teams during high demand periods have shown improved quality outcomes and reduced costs. From the systems implemented in 2014 results in stakeholder satisfaction surveys, showed that service delivery improved by 10%. Simple cost effective strategies are often overlooked because of resistance to change and or think out the box. Healthcare Dynamics will assist and facilitate these strategies to enhance efficiency and effectiveness.

Risk Profiling

“The first step in the risk management process is to acknowledge the reality of risk. Denial is a common tactic that substitutes deliberate ignorance for thoughtful planning.”
Charles Tremper quotes

What will it take to sink your ship? Risks are not always obvious and it is essential to be prepared to mitigate the risks in all service provision.  Healthcare Dynamics have designed a risk matrix that is easy to populate and it allows the awareness and there for the mitigation of adverse events. Being prepared for all hazards natural or other is the proactive way to stay afloat.

DoH Core Standards

The importance of providing quality health services is non-negotiable. Better quality of care is fundamental in improving South Africa’s current poor health outcomes and in restoring Patient and staff confidence in the public and private health care system. If quality is defined as “getting the best possible results within available resources”, then these National Core Standards set out how best to achieve this. Dr Aaron Motsoaledi (MP)

MINISTER OF HEALTH

Legislation and compliance to the basic standards as laid out in the Department of Health Core Standards is essential. All Healthcare service institutes have to be compliant in most aspects and given the complexity of the audit experience is adventitious when planning and measuring to be compliant.  
Healthcare Dynamics consultants and managed, run and audited for the past 3 years and have experience and insight into the needs and requirements to reach the standard prescribed by the Department of Health.

Disaster Planning

Nationally and Internationally trained consultants are available to assess and plan for any major incident that will disrupt service provision. It is challenging to be ready for all adverse events however following a basic strategy that can be adapted to most hazards is easy to implement and roll out in most instances. Healthcare dynamics will assist in the identification, design and implementation of the plan to the satisfaction of management.We cannot stop natural disasters but we can arm ourselves with knowledge: so many lives wouldn't have to be lost if there was enough disaster preparedness.
Petra Nemcova

Root cause analysis

Time line analysis and the question “why” is the only process that seeks the truth of the cause of any adverse event. If we do not know form where we are coming we will have no idea to where we are going. Based on this it is good governance and best practice to analyse adverse events to prevent future events that negatively affect outcomes.

By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.
Confucius

Medico/legal Forensic file auditing

The complete picture and events pertaining to the client are woven in the charts and reports.  Insight is required to draw all the information from the documentation summarise and ensure it is clear and valid for the purpose that the file is being audited.  Evidence based fact and research may be required to validate the conclusions required to proceed with an enquiry, expert witness to attest to the facts sourced and or insight shed on the actual events.  In all instanced Healthcare dynamics consultants will provide clear concise information with evidence as required by the client.

“The truth." Dumbledore sighed. "It is a beautiful and terrible thing, and should therefore be treated with great caution.”
