Report: Clinical Communication and Collaboration: Redefining the Patient Journey for Better Outcomes

October 1, 2021

As the pandemic evolved, an added strain was placed on Emergency Departments (EDs) with the need to isolate COVID-19 patients from those seeking emergent care and non-COVID-19 care. Minimizing time spent in the ED or bypassing the ED altogether, along with the suspension of facility-based elective care, became a priority. This caused a shift in the traditional patient journey. There was a heightened interest in virtual assessments and notification systems to improve the flow of patients through EDs. 

eHI collaborated with Everbridge to create this report.
