WEBINAR | Enabling Nurse-led Specialized Virtual Care in the Home at Stanford Health Care
July 28, 2022, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Gretchen Brown, MSN, RN, ACNIO, Stanford Health Care, Samuel Thomas, MD, MS, CMO, PocketRN, and Mirini Kim, DNP, RN, CPNP-PC, Director of Nursing, PocketRN. In January 2021, Stanford Health Care Nursing Administration and the Stanford Medicine Catalyst team partnered with PocketRN, a virtual nursing platform, to enable Stanford nurses who were working part time or unable to work in-person to provide nurse-led specialized virtual care in the home. Through an IRB-approved clinical study in the Stanford Advanced Wound Care Clinic and the Stanford Vascular Clinic, this collaboration aimed to mobilize and improve the ability for a pool of internal Stanford nurses to work at the top of their license; to improve retention of retiring, part-time, and family or medical leave nurses; to reduce the workload of in-person nurses; and to provide increased access to high quality specialty-matched care for Stanford patients and their informal caregivers. In this presentation we will discuss system-level value creation through nurse-led virtual care delivery, digital health implementation strategies to integrate virtual care into existing clinical workflows, and how to address nurse burnout and retention challenges – relevant to the national nurse staffing crisis.
