Agenda

  • Introduction

  • Kennestone Emergency Department

  • Metrics

  • More Metrics- Exit Phase

  • Even More Metrics- Non-ED Physicians

  • So far…


To err is human l.jpg

To Err Is Human

  • Patient Safety Issues: IOM report Nov. 1999

  • > 44,000 – 96,000 deaths related to preventable medical errors/year

  • $17B - $29B cost

Cpoe a process l.jpg

CPOE: A Process

  • Multiple applications

    • Provider

    • Nursing

    • Pharmacy

    • Ancillary Services, i.e., Laboratory, Medical Imaging

  • Global process - multiple stakeholders

  • KLAS: 17.5% US Hospitals > 200 beds in 2007


Cpoe financial gains l.jpg

CPOE- Financial Gains

CPOE in Community Hospitals:

  • ADE cost

  • Renal dosing errors

  • Unnecessary / Redundant diagnostic studies

  • IV to PO conversion

  • $2.7M Reduction in Cost, 26 month payback*

* Feb 08 MA CPOE Initiative Report

One solution…

“In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity”

A better way metrics l.jpg

A Better Way: Metrics


Throughput analysis l.jpg

Throughput Analysis

  • Neglected value of ED applications

  • Acquire data from HEC & TB.

  • Quarantine invalid data

  • Report data compliance, i.e., reporting efficacy and accuracy.

  • Select and study throughput intervals.

  • Identify high-yield opportunities.

  • Arrival to Triage

  • Arrival to Bed

  • Arrival to EDMD Assigned

  • Arrival to EDMD At Bedside

  • Bed to EDMD at Bedside

  • EDMD at Bedside to EDMD Decision to Disposition

ED Metrics


The good reliable ed metrics l.jpg

The Good: Reliable ED Metrics

ERK - July 2008


The bad delays in seeing edmd l.jpg

The Bad: Delays in Seeing EDMD

Admitted Patients:

Patient Arrival to MD At Bedside: 61 minutes

Patient in Bed to MD At Bedside: 42 minutes


The ugly delays in exit from ed l.jpg

The Ugly: Delays in Exit From ED

July 2008 EDMD Decision to Admit to Exit from ED:

Exit Phase = EDMD Decision to Admit → Patient Exit From ED

162 + 10 = 172 minutes

39-47% Average ED Patient LOS (Jan – July 2008)


Progress bed to mdatbed l.jpg

Progress: Bed to MDATBED

Jul 08: Additional 1P EDMD shift present on 12/31 (38.7%) days

90% August dates have 1P ED MD Coverage

Exit Phase Delays


Admitted ed patients 3 steps l.jpg

Admitted ED Patients: 3 Steps

  • Get Into An ED Bed

  • Receive ED Treatment &/Or Evaluation

  • Move to Next Level of Care


Getting into an ed bed l.jpg

Getting Into An ED Bed:

  • Available ED Bed and Resources

    • Clinical Staff, i.e., RN, tech, etc.

    • Open Beds

    • Patients Must Be Able To Leave

  • ED MD Must Be Available

    • Appropriate ED MD Staffing


Treatment or evaluation l.jpg

Treatment &/Or Evaluation:

  • Treatment

  • Laboratory Tests

  • Medical Imaging Studies

  • Consultation for Admitted Patients

    ED Process Improvement Committee


Moving to the next level l.jpg

Moving to the Next Level:

  • Receive Admitting Orders, then…

  • Additional ED Orders

  • Call For Bed (Next Level Of Care)

  • Bed Assignment

  • Inpatient RN Staff Available to Receive Report

  • ED Staff Available to Move Patient


Moving to the next level57 l.jpg

Moving to the Next Level:

  • Exit Phase:

    • Begins With EDMD Decision To Admit

    • Ends With Patient Exit From ED

  • 158-251 minutes January – August 2008

  • 39-47% of LOS


Exit phase study intervals l.jpg

Exit Phase: Study Intervals

How long did it take to receive orders?

  • Consult Interval

  • [EDMD Decision to Disposition] to Admit Orders Received (AOR)


Exit phase study intervals59 l.jpg

Exit Phase: Study Intervals

How long after AOR did patient leave EDTB?

  • ED Inpatient Admit Interval

  • AOR to Exit (ED bed available)


Exit phase study may september 2008 l.jpg

Exit Phase Study: May – September 2008

Averaged 86-110 minutes just to get admit orders

Haven’t even called for a bed.

Cardiology admissions l.jpg

Cardiology Admissions

Significant variation in consult intervals exists between cardiology practices.

  • Two of three cardiology practices, Practices “A” and “C,” account for 22.7% of all ED admissions. These practices almost exclusively admit only following consultation and evaluation in the ED.

  • Practice “B” routinely phones in orders and evaluates the patient on the floor if they left the ED by the time they arrive.

  • This is reflected in patients’ consult intervals and LOS:

In progress l.jpg

In Progress:

  • Medical Staff Admit Strategies

  • Staffing Changes and Allied Health Professionals

  • EDMD Calls For Bed

  • Admit Holding Area
