On average, 23% of the patients in an emergency department are lying or sitting in wait. Not only does this create a TERRIBLE PATIENT EXPERIENCE, it also adds stress to clinicians – driving burnout.
COST OF CARE
From ’08-’17, the average cost of an ED visit increased $393 to $924 (2.35x over 10 years)! This jump was largely funded by patients, whose out-of -pocket portion rose from $70 to $239 (3.4x).
Sepsis survival decreases 7.6% with every hour delay in antibiotics after the onset of hypotension. At the onset of septic shock, mortality rates vary from 30% to 50%. Like most ED arrivals – time is of the essence!

@mloxton Contemplating this question Matthew, it would seem that a digital (AI) scribe could help reduce the workflow friction resulting from having a human scribe. It would be interesting to know what others think...
Michelle Theroux of @DeloitteHealth delivered a super-compelling presentation on the future of healthcare. Canada may not be dazzling on per capita healthcare spending, but... yeowch! The US has more than doubled our costs. #lsbc_innovation
