Utilising point-of-care testing and service redesign to develop an ambulatory emergency care model


A trust has developed an innovative ambulatory emergency care model by utilising engineering process and governance. This includes process activity mapping, evidence based service redesign and failure mode effect analysis, along with point-of-care testing.

"Currently we discharge 92% of our patients with a mean length of stay of 105minutes, while seeing 45% of the acute medical take. "
