The Emergency Care Improvement Group aims to improve the provision of high-quality, safe and efficient Emergency Care through tailored data analysis focussing on Access, Safety and Value.
Emergency Care providers face significant challenges in delivering high quality and timely patient care on an ever-present background of increasing patient presentations and finite hospital resources. Any mismatch between patient demand and the hospital’s capacity can compromise the safe delivery of care to the patient within the Emergency Department.
Our exclusive reports highlight key insights for your facility and our unique workshops create collaboration and innovation sharing of best practice across Australia and New Zealand members.
Specifically, the suite of Emergency Care Benchmarking Reports includes analysis on the following:
- · Presentations by month, day and time
- · Arrival and referral
- · Triage performance
- · High Intensity User’s
- · Top presenting diagnosis’s
- · Specific NOF, MH and D&A analysis
- · ED Imaging
- · Length of Stay and NEAT
- · Admission %
- · ED Costs per diagnosis
Your Emergency Department has limited control over demand through your front door and how timely your patients leave through the back door.
Investigations and inputs from other services take more time and every moment your patient spends within the Emergency Department is measured and reported.
Referral teams, internal colleagues and external partners need to collaborate with the Emergency team to create high-functioning interfaces, important to the smooth running of any Emergency Department.
In 2020, our workshop will explore:
1. What cohorts should not be managed by the ED, and where should they go instead?
2. The rise of the Acute Physician globally.
After our Emergency Care workshop, you will have analysed your data, highlighted an opportunity, leveraged best practice and have an implementation plan ready to present to the workshop the following year.
The Emergency Care Workshop is an exciting and unique event to:
- Learn how to analyse the Emergency Care report data
- Identify your organisations opportunities to improve
- Celebrate where your teams are exemplars
- Listen to leading experts in Emergency Care
- Share your innovations to the membership across Australia and New Zealand.
The Emergency Care Improvement Group will be working closely with members to co-design the reporting and workshop format.
