Project Information

Fast track pilot in the ED with Family Medicine and Internal Medicine

Project Description: The Fast Track process was enacted through interdisciplinary agreements with the family medicine (CHFM) and internal medicine services for admitted patients not requiring an IMC or ICU admission. At the time of initiation, this time interval was an average of 3-4 hours. Initiation of this process was based on a publication in Academic Emergency Medicine citing success at a similar academic institution that was measured by improved ED length of stay (LOS) via a decreased time interval from bed order placement to ED exit to the hospital floor.
