A typical cardiac device clinic experiences common same challenges over and over again. The life-cycle of an efficiently run and optimized device clinic contains several universal components. These same problem areas exist in device clinics everywhere and include these primary challenges: staffing, training and remote monitoring optimization and efficiencies.
A Device Clinic Staffing Crisis: Device clinics nationwide are grappling with a staffing crisis as they strive to meet remote monitoring care standards. Recruiting and retaining skilled device techs and nurses is an uphill battle. According to recent HRS guidelines, clinics need 3 device techs for every 1000 CIED patients they manage – a daunting yet critical task.
Cardiac Device Clinic Needs to Hire and Train Staff: The Device Clinic Manager feels as if the recruiting,hiring and training process is never complete. Finding staff that is trained and clinically ready to handle remote monitoring and in-clinic patient care is a tall order. Even after hiring competent clinic staff a Device Clinic Manager may have additional clinic staff in need of training.
Device Remote Monitoring Needs Efficiency and Optimization: The workflow in a device clinic can be overwhelming, so a Clinic Manager is constantly searching for ways to optimize and improve efficiency in the clinic’s remote monitoring with the goal to have a fully efficient device clinic that will elevate the patient outcomes.
