The affordable care act changes the dynamics of most emergency departments. Increased volumes are expected, value based reimbursements will become the norm, patient satisfaction metrics will require faster response than ever before. Readmission reduction requirements will cause all processes to be completely rethought. Many hospitals know they will fall short of the requirements.
There are many ideas worth considering, yet we don’t know which one or combination of ideas will make the ED perform to meet the new requirements. ProcessModel, allows you replicate the behavior of your emergency department and then see the effects of these possible changes.
