On average, 23% of the patient population in an ED is sitting in the waiting room. Adding to the stress this puts on clinicians, are the patients lying on stretchers in corridors. Slowdowns, patient dissatisfaction, and negative outcomes drive clinician burnout.
48% of emergency department physicians report feeling burned out. This leads to reduced job performance, increased sick days, and even suicide. Bureaucratic tasks are the #1 cause of burnout (including paperwork, charting, billing, etc).
COST OF CARE
From 2008 – 2017, the average cost of an emergency department visit increased $393 t0 $924. That’s 2.35x over only 10 years! This jump is largely funded by patients, whose out-of -pocket portion increased 241 percent, from $70 to $239.
Sepsis survival decreases 7.6% with every hour delay in receiving antibiotics after the onset of hypotension. At the onset of septic shock, mortality rates vary from 30% to 50%. So it is with many emergencies – time is of the essence!

@techguy "they cited patient-facing options like wearables, mobile apps and self-service tools. They also said they were looking at a number of provider-facing solutions which could ... improve patient flow, including care coordination apps and tools..." a QiiQ bullseye!
