THE FUTURE OF ACUTE HEALTHCARE
How might we leverage the right combination of caregivers, resources and time across the region for patients in order to improve acute healthcare?
September 11 – 13
September 11 – 13
Create a coordinating infrastructure that supports all entry points to the acute care system to enable every patient to receive the best acute care path at the right time and in the right place from the right caregiver given the available resources.
The pressure on the acute healthcare network has been mounting. During the 2017-2018 flu epidemic, EDs were clogged and overcrowded. There was a lack of oversight, coordination and personnel in the acute healthcare network, preventing patients from getting the right care at the right place and time.
All actors want to share their care capacity (available beds, operating rooms, staff) and demands (patient that needs X care), but cannot. Their data and applications are not interoperable. Multidisciplinary triage teams need support to decide where patients will go. Our region needs a way to anticipate and plan for our future acute healthcare.
Great multidisciplinary triage and coordination, immediately results in better acute care for patients and more efficient use of the available resources (personnel and available beds) in a region.
Long term: availability of scenario’s predicting care demand, resulting in better planning of entire new healthcare systems.
A WINNING TEAM WILL...
Show understanding on how to transfer multidimensional information into an easy to use decision support tool for patient triage.
Show potential by scheduling a possible use case for the city and region.
Demonstrate that the solution, when further developed, could predict care demand within a region in the long term.
