Clinical Initiatives: ED Throughput
One of the first initiatives of the AllSpire Health Partners was the ED Throughput Initiative. The goal of this initiative was to reduce patient wait times and overall length of stay in order to reduce complications and improve patient outcomes. Member health systems were able to compare issues and solutions to develop improved Best Practices to reduce wait times. This also had a positive effect on overall patient health. Data analysis and regular communication help to create a culture of success that feeds into the new employee training models to sustain improvement.
