Clinical Nest App

The Center for Physician Education has worked with the Clinical Effectiveness Council to provide a solution to getting information easily out to the staff via their phones.  Due to this gap the Clinical Nest app was created and is currently adding more content consistently.  The purpose of the Clinical Nest app is to help in assisting with the quality of the services healthcare providers provide that are safe, effective and in line with the needs of their population by including tools, endorsed guidelines, pathways, and resources. Clinical effectiveness is defined as "the application of the best knowledge, derived from research, clinical experience, and patient preferences to achieve optimum processes and outcomes of care for patients. The process involves a framework of informing, changing, and monitoring practice." Clinical effectiveness is about improving a patients' total experience of healthcare and is an essential part of improving and assuring quality. The aim is to use evidence to improve the effectiveness of clinical practice and service delivery.
