Use of RTLS to Support a Model of Patient-Centered Care
6:00pm - 7:00pmThursday, March 8
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
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.
