The Journey PX team is proud to support nurses. Our patient experience solutions save hospital care teams valuable time and steps by leaning down clinical workflows, automating the patient education process, offloading non-clinical tasks, and offering the capability of securely connecting via video in the patient’s room.
We are proud to support The DAISY Foundation, because of our mission to express gratitude to nurses. The DAISY Foundation is an organization devoted to saying “thank you” to nurses everywhere, by establishing a nurse recognition program, The DAISY Award is celebrated internationally in over 5,000 healthcare facilities and nursing schools. Our Journey PX platform supports the submission of DAISY nominations.
We recently hosted a special guest on our podcast PX Space, Bonnie Barnes, Co-founder of The DAISY Foundation. Bonnie discussed the importance of giving back to nurses by providing them with recognition for their extraordinary work. She also discussed the origins and future of The DAISY Foundation with nurse leader, Linda Robinson, the VP of Clinical Excellence at MDM Healthcare.
“We created the DAISY Award as a way for patients, families, and coworkers to share their stories of extraordinary compassionate care by nominating a nurse for the Daisy Award, which would be an ongoing program of recognition. There are now over 5,500 healthcare facilities and nursing schools and 33 countries committed to honoring nurses month in and month out with the DAISY Award,” said Barnes.
Journey PX’s partnership with The DAISY Foundation gives patients the ability to nominate nurses for a daisy award using their Journey PX platform right from their hospital bed, while their positive experience is still fresh in their minds.
The VP of Clinical Excellence at MDM Healthcare, Linda Robinson reflected on why this capability is so important.
“Our patient engagement solution is deployed via the smart TV in the patient's room and the patient uses their pillow speaker to navigate. Journey PX is integrated with the patient's electronic medical record and allows them to recognize their nurse for the exceptional care that they receive. It is very important to us that we have provided a way for our hospital clients to allow patients and families to recognize their nurses for the extraordinary compassionate care that they are delivering,” said Robinson.
Barnes explained why giving back to nurses is so important to the Foundation. “We have heard a million times from nurses in response to receiving the DAISY Award: I didn't do anything special. I was just doing my job. However, when you're on the receiving end of that care, it's special. Believe me, it is very special, and we need to share our gratitude because we certainly feel it,” she said.
