Recent legislation is demanding a change in the way health care is delivered. As the system transforms from fee-for-service to fee-for-value, EDs must use only those resources necessary to improve quality of care, delivered with greater efficiency.
Hospitals are seeking innovative technologies to transform patient care. Several EDs have had the i-STAT System integrated in their patient-care process and have realized significant improvements in:
By incorporating i-STAT and cTnl into common order sets and protocols, a Texas hospital reduced ED door-to-result times by 50 minutes.
A teaching hospital improved ED patient satisfaction by 38.7% after integrating i-STAT Chem8+, cTnl, CG4+, and PT/INR into its patient care process.
By using i-STAT cTnl with serial testing, one of Florida's busiest EDs reduced length of stay by 58 minutes for chest pain patients.
