ER CRISIS – A STATE OF NORMAL

CROWDING

23%

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

$974

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).

HEALTH OUTCOMES

7.6%/hr

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...
