Workflow efficiency in a busy emergency department (ED) is vital – the team works together to deliver medical aid to patients quickly. When patients present with diffuse symptoms at the ED, you want to be sure that you’re making the right diagnostic decision.
Professor Dorota Zysko, ED Director at the University Hospital in Wroclaw, Poland, aims to ease the workload of her staff. By doing so, they can deliver medical aid quickly to patients.
What can support workflow efficiency in the ED?
Watch the video and see how Professor Zysko and her team use point-of-care testing to enhance workflow efficiency in the ED.
Professor Zysko asserts that “point-of-care testing has considerably impacted the quality of medical care we deliver.” Through point-of-care testing, the ED can obtain critical test results quickly in order to diagnose the patient. These results include creatinine, which helps the team assess the patient’s renal function.
Professor Zysko states that enhancing workflow efficiency with point-of-care testing helps shorten patients’ stay and relieves stress from staff. By delivering medical aid quickly, you can help a patient get the treatment they need, thereby improving patient care.
