The Medicine and Path team at Mission Memorial Hospital (MMH) is making the transition to MEDITECH Expanse a tad more fun. Recently gaining a large number of upgraded Work Stations on Wheels (WOWs), this spirited health care team decided to add a splash of personality to the names of their trusty new companions.
Why the fun names? It's more than just whimsy. The Medicine and Path team at MMH believe that infusing a sense of humour into their daily routines lightens the load and fosters a positive team atmosphere. “Personalizing our WOWs not only helped reduce the stress of adopting new technologies, it also created laughter, joy and a refreshed camaraderie among the team,” says McIntosh.
So, if you ever find yourself in a health care facility and encounter a WOW with a whimsical name, know that behind this digital device is a team of dedicated professionals making strides in the world of electronic health records, one fun name at a time!
