These challenges are coupled with the need to continually adapt to ever changing technology, ensure emergency preparedness and deliver in an era of accountable care.
Taught by nationally recognized experts, this workshop uncovers and offers a review of design methodologies, benchmark challenges inherent in today’s emergency departments, how to quantify and measure those challenges and explore innovations, processes and facility-based solutions. You will obtain insight into optimal patient flow, research-based process, design interventions and strategies that improve clinical outcomes, quality of care, and patient safety and satisfaction.
