Hospitalists, pharmacy collaborate on throughput.
Hosp Case Manag. 2012 Jan;20(1):15
Pace of Care, a multidisciplinary initiative at Memorial Health Care System in Chattanooga, TN, has improved patient throughput and cut length of stay. The case management department was redesigned and the staff increased. Case managers and nursing staff hold rounds in each patient's room and discuss the plan of care and anticipated discharge. The hospitalists and pharmacy collaborate with case management on moving patients through the continuum of care.
