Hundreds of CV leaders asked us to identify ways to deliver high-quality and efficient patient care while also navigating payer scrutiny of short-stay inpatient cases.
This excerpt of our full study Perfecting CV Short-Stay Patient Management provides three strategies that will help CV programs better manage cardiovascular patients in the ED. It includes an overview of the HEART score, the pathway that MemorialCare and other Advisory Board members have successfully used to shorten lengths of stay in the ED and observation, reduce variability in treatment of chest pain, and align resource utilization with patient risk.
Download the excerpt to learn how to:
• Effectively triage and manage CV patients who present acutely in the ED but do not necessarily require an inpatient admission
• Best deliver observation services to optimize efficiency and patient throughput
• Efficiently manage outpatient elective procedures to promote same-day discharge for low-risk patients
