KEYNOTE: Evaluate Evidence-Based Protocols and Diagnoses for Observation Patients to Ensure Efficiency

Clear observation protocols have been shown to be an effective tool in reducing length of stay, minimizing costs, and delivering efficient care for patients in observation. Protocols that incorporate input from the whole care team have proven to be most effective in efficiently determining a patient’s status. This allows the care team to swiftly direct the relevant resources to the patient and facilitate quick discharge to avoid overstays. Clear and comprehensive protocols that complement general diagnostic procedures are the key to standardizing patient care and ensuring a smooth and efficient flow of patients through the Observation status.

  • Assess evidence-based protocols, order sets, and clinical pathways for testing common observation diagnoses
  • Discuss components of effective observation protocols, including responsibilities of the care team
  • Understand the process of designing protocols specific to your hospital and the critical role that EHRs play
