"St. Peter's is proud of our outstanding achievements in cardiovascular health. Our nurses, in collaboration with our IT staff, have worked diligently over the past two years to improve patient outcomes," said Amy Seymour, RN, director, medical cardiology. "Using clinical profiles from CareFocus for AMI and heart failure identification, as well as for medication screening, has been a key component of our overall clinical quality improvement program. We look forward to adding more surveillance profiles to this automated process in the near future."
Kelly Remancus, RN, and Kristen Cumoletti, RN, will present the results of the St. Peter's Hospital clinical performance improvement initiatives at the upcoming American Nurses Credentialing Center National Magnet Conference on October 16 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Their presentation is titled "Nurse Champion Innovations: Examining and Improving Core Measure Performance for Cardiac Patients."
