Getting It Right for Our Patients
Data-informed tool helps hospitals appropriately staff in the moment and in the future

Guest bloggers Patricia Dilley, Director of Clinical Information Systems for AcuityPlus, a division of Harris OnPoint, and Deann Shaver, Principal Consultant for the AcuityPlus product, take a look at New York’s recently enacted clinical staffing committee law and what it will mean for hospitals and patients. Patient safety and flexible staffing are at the heart of the legislation, as is an acknowledgement that variations in case severity are in constant change, requiring a health outcomes and data-informed approach to staffing. This has never been truer than during the past 20 months, when hospital staffing was stretched to the max by the demands of the pandemic.
