Use of RTLS to Support a Model of Patient-Centered Care

6:00pm - 7:00pm Thursday, March 8
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Galileo 901

Description

The drive for patient-centered, multidisciplinary care is being fueled by payment model changes. To create an optimal environment for this type of care, we have designed an ambulatory care facility that provides each patient access to their own room on check in, much like a hotel. We have also co-localized within the center the specialists dedicated to treating conditions limiting patient mobility and many of the support services required for rapid diagnosis and treatment. Demonstrating the benefit the center provides to patients and driving care integration across departments requires ready access to robust data and analytics. This session will discuss the structure of our center and the evolving information system backbone that supports its mission. The speakers will focus on the use of a real time location system (RTLS) on providing care, compare a patient visit at a conventional multispecialty clinic with our center and discuss ways forward on care improvement.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Compare the function of patient self-rooming to the standard waiting room model in an ambulatory care facility
  • Compare the implementation of a RTLS in a preexisting clinic and a newly constructed ambulatory clinic
  • Describe how RTLS can be used by staff at the point of care
  • Recognize standard measures acquired with RTLS
  • Appraise RTLS data to target processes in need of quality improvement
