Streamlining Processes to Improve Nurse Navigation Workflow and Patient Engagement

Nurse Navigation WorkflowToday, as cancer programs increasingly seek out ways to improve and support nurse navigation workflow and improve the outcomes of patient engagement, many organizations are turning to patient navigation software to enhance care. From cancer diagnosis, treatment selection, and patient education, long-term care and follow-up, every part of the cancer care continuum can be enhanced by using quality oncology nurse navigation software.

But, studies show that patient engagement technologies only work to help improve patient outcomes if the users receive proper education about the tools. According to a study published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research, “A major barrier to IT adoption is user acceptance; the technology acceptance model (TAM) states that user acceptance is highly influenced by the perceived usefulness of the system.”

Overcoming Barriers with Hands-On Training and Support

Keep in mind that oncology navigation software isn’t a solution you launch and walk away from—it requires active participation and presents an incredible opportunity for improvement within an organization.

To overcome the barriers of health IT implementation, cancer programs must zero in on their staff by providing comprehensive in-service training and ongoing education. At OncoNav, we pride ourselves on providing only the highest quality, hands-on training and technical support for all users. With full, two days of initial product training and regularly scheduled webinars, you’ll have access to an expert support team comprised of nurse navigators and Oncology professionals every step of the way.

Enhancing Patient Engagement and Nurse Navigation Workflow

The Journal of Medical Internet Research study also revealed that with proper training, patient engagement software can enhance care delivery and lead to long-term engagement. By leading to more meaningful conversations between nurses and patients, patient navigation software serves as a valuable tool to enhance interactive communications. Through education and engagement materials, navigators have the opportunity to deliver a seamless experience at every touchpoint while improving the quality of care at the same time.

But, oncology navigation software does more than just help to improve patient care. In an industry overwhelmed with too many clicks, the right software along with good training on the software can help cancer programs improve nurse navigation workflow. Since oncology navigation software is not subject to spreadsheet errors or data entry fatigue, it can help to reduce documentation time, improve reporting, and provide a consistent way to provide oncology patient care.

Most importantly, when you maximize workflow efficiencies for nurse navigators, you’re giving them back precious time that results in quality outcomes and improved care for their patients.
