Time: 37 minutes
Hospitals today can leverage real-time locating systems (RTLS) to measure performance of their emergency department to drive process improvements in the areas of timeliness and efficiency. This is accomplished through performance metrics and reporting showing: Length of Stay, ED Hold time, Door-to-Exam Room, Door-to-Provider – all in real-time and down to the individual patient level. Additionally, the integration of EHRs and RTLS provides automatically collected and accurate time stamps – bringing minutes back to direct interaction with patients.
In this webinar, you will:
- Understand the challenges that make the emergency department a challenging environment to capture accurate event data
- Understand the benefits of using RTLS as a tool for automating event data capture
- See a comprehensive picture of emergency department activities when RTLS data is merged with electronic health record data
- Learn how to use LEAN principles to refine emergency department processes
