Safety, on its own, is a major responsibility for staff members, and added tasks like manual data reporting, analysis and follow-up with each department head can quickly become burden some. The safety team at the nonprofit Montage Health, located in Monterey, California, was no stranger to these challenges until the health system found a solution for its staff. Montage’s main campus, Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula (CHOMP), uses Joint Commission Resources Tracers with AMP platform for its EOC rounding and to drive standardization with other tracers. For the staff at CHOMP, Tracers with AMP didn’t just improve processes — the platform drove an entirely new culture around environment of care for its patients.
CHOMP's Clinical Quality Analyst and Safety Coordinator team oversee the management of their Environment of Care program. Natasha DiPretoro, Assistant Safety Coordinator, was an integral part of setting up their facility to use Tracers with AMP. Daniel McKernan, who is the Safety Coordinator from Montage Health observes how their Environment of Care rounds have benefitted from Tracers with AMP.
