The illusion of time
Triscribe saves your hospital enough time to make the business case but that is just the beginning. How time saved accumulates and multiplies the benefits of Triscribe.
“Little disciplines compounded over time make a huge difference.”
Your hospital’s business case for Triscribe rests on three things:
1. Save money from your drugs budget.
2. Reduce safety incidents, better for patients and financially.
3. Save every user time, on average a week of time every year.
The thing with business cases is they are about business. Terms of reference are financial and narrowly defined. The financial value of time saved by Triscribe users is easily worth the subscription on its own. But it’s not the whole story.
Triscribe saves your hospital time in many other ways. Those savings accumulate in a multiplier effect that offers all sorts of additional benefits.
Here’s how it works:
Triscribe gets you the information you need quickly and easily. Your hospital can be up and running in less than 3 months. How long is your backlog of requests and projects with informatics?
That means you start realising the benefits sooner. Users save time, you have better data about safety risks and for performance management. You can start applying that time to other aspects of patient care. That leads to other benefits, like reducing waiting lists. Those soon add up.
It also means you remove a bunch of requests from your informatics/IT backlog. Informatics are a scarce resource, so that gives them more time. They can do other work with the free time. That brings additional benefits and again those add up.
Hospital medicines data is messy and difficult to analyse. Triscribe has already invested 5 years getting this right. You can leverage that time. There is a whole truckload of essential detail you don’t need to worry about because we have already solved it. That makes it easier for a variety of specialist teams to work with our data. Transformation teams, procurement teams, research teams, high-cost drugs teams and so on. Guess what, those teams save time and that adds up even more.
I don’t have a reliable way of measuring all this time. Honestly, trying to capture everything would be such a time-consuming project it would defeat the object of the exercise. This is the mental image I have of Triscribe and time:
Even I find this picture confusing! So we have developed a new service called Meds Data Health Check that will help. Our health check will identify the specific opportunities for your hospital to make better use of medication data. And its completely free for NHS hospitals. In my next post, I will tell you more about this service…
“Invest in stupidity now for wisdom later.”
