Background Falls among older adults are both a common reason for presentation to the emergency department, and a major source of morbidity and mortality. It is critical to identify fall patients quickly and reliably during, and immediately after, emergency department encounters in order to deliver appropriate care and referrals. Unfortunately, falls are difficult to identify without manual chart review, a time intensive process infeasible for many applications including surveillance and quality ...
AbstractPurpose:Since 2014, the AUA has convened several Quality Improvement Summits to provide education and promote dialogue around issues of quality improvement and patient safety. The 2017 Summit, Challenges and Opportunities for Stewardship of Urological Imaging, organized in partnership with the American College of Radiology (ACR) and the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP), highlighted opportunities for collaborative improvement in the value, safety, and quality of imaging for...

Abstract Goal : Interhospital transfer (IHT) facilitates access to specialized neurocritical care but may also introduce unique risk. Our goal was to describe providers’ perceptions of safety threats during IHT for patients with nontraumatic intracranial hemorrhage. Materials and Methods : We employed qualitative, semi-structured interviews at an academic medical center receiving critically-ill neurologic transfers, and 5 referring hospitals. Interviewees included physicians, nurses, and allied ...

Objective To examine the differences in risk-adjusted transfer and discharge rates by patient insurance status among hospitals capable of providing critical care. Design, Setting, and Participants A cross-sectional analysis of the 2015 National Emergency Department Sample was cond...

Emergency clinicians are on the front lines of responding to the opioid epidemic and are leading innovations to reduce opioid overdose deaths through safer prescribing, harm reduction, and improved linkage to outpatient treatment. Currently, there are no nationally recognized quality measures or best practices to guide emergency department quality improvement efforts, implementation science researchers, or policymakers seeking to reduce opioid-associated morbidity and mortality. To address this ...

The traditional model of primary care practices as the main provider of care for acute illnesses is rapidly changing. Over the past two decades the growth in emergency department (ED) visits has spurred efforts to reduce “inappropriate” ED use. We examined a nationally representative sample of office and ED visits in the period 2002–15. We found a 12 percent increase in ED use (from 385 to 430 visits per 1,000 population), which was dwarfed by a decrease of nearly one-third in the rate of acute ...
