Emergency department overcrowding is a clear challenge for hospitals. In 2019, Austin Health implemented a real time Emergency Department (ED) dashboard to work alongside the existing EMR and improve patient flow across the hospital by providing clinicians with real time data of the department’s activity. Learn how Austin:
Identified and resolved road blocks for patient flow, to improve flow of patients in the emergency department and develop a tailored escalation response to any issues
Gained an insight into the status of their ED, based on metrics around the ideal 4 hr patient journey
Used this project to gain a real-time view of the ED, resource demands, access issues and facilitate a proactive capacity planning and management response
Uses this project as a benchmark for moving away from a blanket approach to ED capacity management, towards a more tailored approach using metrics and data provided by the dashboard
