Case Studies: Renovated E.D. Processes Boost Patient Flow at Baptist St. Anthony Medical Center in Texas
The hospital’s small group lacked the resources and bandwidth needed to provide clinical recruiting and operational oversight, had difficulty transitioning to a new electronic medical record (EMR) system, and lack of committed nurse leadership led to poor throughput metrics including high door to doctor, left without being seen and average length of stay.
Envision recognized the need to transition to a more patient-centric delivery of care for the emergency department.
Left without being seen reduced from nine percent to one percent
86% decrease in door to doctor time
25% decrease in length of stay
