Vall d’Hebron Hospital will run two different use cases, one targeting the improvement of emergency room (ER) care flow and other focusing on the stroke patient flow.
The first use case will focus on optimizing the door-diagnosis and the door-treatment time in the triage level 3 ER patients and acute stroke patients. The second use case will optimize the follow up of stroke acute phase process.
In both, the ER care flow and the stroke pathway, time is an important issue. To detect the steps in these care processes that will allow us to reduce the time and improve patient flow is key in this project, with the final aim to maximize safety, quality and efficiency in the diagnosis and treatment phase. By using the implementation Real-Time Location System Technologies and through the implementation of an emergency unit care model we will be able to closely follow patients and implement the tracking system in the Emergency Department and the Stroke Unit.
