Healthcare and Hospital Knowledge Management

As the medical field continues its rapid evolution—marked by new research findings, innovative treatment procedures, and ever-shifting administrative processes—the need for an agile and efficient healthcare knowledge management system becomes even more pronounced. Hospitals, particularly large-scale or multi-specialty ones, grapple daily with vast datasets. They face the challenges of interdisciplinary coordination and the imperative of instant information retrieval in high-stakes, critical situations. According to a study published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research, the use of knowledge management systems in healthcare can improve patient outcomes by 35% and reduce hospital-related complications. In such environments, a robust knowledge management system isn’t just beneficial—it’s essential for optimal patient care and streamlined operational efficiency.

With Bloomfire’s knowledge management solution, you can:

Streamline patient care

Retrieve the correct data quickly

The healthcare industry deals with vast amounts of complex data, from patient histories to treatment protocols. Bloomfire’s AI-Powered Search ensures that medical professionals can quickly locate the precise information they need, even if they’re unsure of the exact terms or data points. Speed and accuracy in retrieving data can directly impact patient care by improving outcomes.

Save Time with AI-Powered Search
Optimize safety and operations

Maintain patient trust

Hospitals handle sensitive data, including personal patient information, treatment records, etc. Bloomfire is SOC2 Type II compliant, and we use end-to-end data encryption at rest and all user data using AES-256. Ensuring the highest level of privacy and security is not just a matter of compliance (like HIPAA) but is crucial for maintaining patient trust and the hospital’s reputation.

Enhanced interdepartmental coordination

Experience real-time knowledge sharing

The dynamic nature of healthcare means that physicians often encounter new scenarios or require clarifications on treatments and protocols. Bloomfire’s Q&A Collective Knowledge Engine allows for real-time knowledge sharing, where medical professionals can ask questions and get answers from their peers, fostering a collaborative environment. The result is an improved medical learning culture where experienced doctors have the type of collaboration tools necessary to properly mentor interns and less experienced physicians. This type of culture will often lead to higher quality treatment and improved patient outcomes.

Efficient healthcare document management

Hospitals and healthcare facilities handle many documents daily, from patient records to the latest medical research. Efficient content and documentation management tools ensure that electronic records are stored securely and can be updated, archived, or retrieved efficiently. This is vital for maintaining accurate patient records and ensuring medical professionals have the latest information.

Clinical Decision Support System (CDSS) Integration

Integrating Bloomfire’s knowledge management capabilities with a CDSS ensures healthcare professionals have real-time access to the most up-to-date medical knowledge, clinical guidelines, and patient data. This seamless integration empowers clinicians to make more informed decisions at the point of care, enhancing patient outcomes and reducing potential medical errors. Furthermore, it streamlines the workflow, allowing healthcare providers to spend more quality time with patients and less time searching for information.

Training and Onboarding

In the wake of post-pandemic challenges, the turnover rate for nurses and other healthcare professionals has surged. Reducing onboarding time has thus emerged as a vital metric for operational efficiency and cost savings. Implementing Bloomfire’s KMS can significantly reduce onboarding time. By acting as a centralized hub for training materials, best practices, and procedural updates, it ensures that all staff members, from administrative to clinical, are rapidly equipped with the latest knowledge.

Research and Protocol Database

Bloomfire’s platform allows various healthcare departments and specialists to discuss, share insights, and collaborate on patient cases and medical research. This centralized repository ensures a cohesive approach to patient care and promotes evidence-based practices. Furthermore, by enabling quick access to past research and case studies, it expedites the process of identifying best treatment protocols and fosters continuous medical innovation.

“Bloomfire is great because it is in a private, shareable location with a robust search engine. With Bloomfire, our reps can attach any document (PDF, video, audio file), allowing for multimedia responses. They can just ‘Google’ information internally for themselves.”

Dr. Mark A. KayeDirector of Medical Information

“The result of that information democratization is that you have happier people. Our team can see that they can progress through the department because they have access to information they didn’t have before.”

Derek DrawhornExecutive Director of Communications Technology
