With more people arriving at A and E’s reception desk, resulting in more people being admitted, more people are waiting to be seen and more are waiting for a hospital bed. Meanwhile, at the other end of the patient journey, acute beds are being occupied by patients medically fit for discharge but other external factors are delaying them from returning home. The result is gridlock. How can we get go with the flow and keep it moving?
A new pilot scheme has been introduced by the North East Ambulance Service (NEAS) and aims to reduce the load on Sunderland’s A&E departments by more than 1,825 attendances every year. The Paramedic Pathfinder will train NEAS ambulance clinicians working in the area to use a ground-breaking clinical triage tool, which helps them to make extremely accurate face-to-face patient assessments and confidently choose the most appropriate place for treatment.
The SAFER patient flow bundle is a practical tool to reduce delays for patients in adult inpatient wards (excluding maternity). When followed consistently, length of stay reduces and patient flow and safety improves.
In this session Seamus McGirr will discuss the strategies and tactical arrangements needed to reduce harm from gaps in systems management. Using real information and predictive analyses, Seamus will illustrate how existing information can and is being used to align “real capacity” to treat with known patient flow. Seamus will show how demand is precisely predictable and outline the steps required to align care systems with population needs and behaviours.
