With OnServiceMD Clinicals, hospitalist programs clear insights into the volume of admissions at any point in time.  However, it is critical not only to be able to understand the pace and number of admissions,  during a period of time, but also to understanding how a hospitalist service’s daytime, evening and overnight admitting resources are being utilized.  Doing so allows any program to triage with optimal efficiency, determine if additional admitting resources may be needed, and distribute patients in the most equitable and balanced manner possible.  Ultimately, patient triage, when done right, not only optimizes throughput of emergency department patients, but also can enhance a service proving timely care to its patients.

With the introduction of new features on the OnServiceMD Admission View, not only are key data points for each admission immediately available (such as triage date/time and patient assignments), however shift-based, user-based admission volume is visible with complete clarity as well.  With OnServiceMD Clinicals being linked to the OnServiceMD Scheduling system, this added information, immediately apparent on the Admission View, enhances the information needed at the point-of-triage to realize additional triage improvements.

Housestaff teams often have complex admission rules, due to housestaff admission caps and times of the day where cutoff periods may occur.  By incorporating information about housestaff admission caps right on the Admission View, alongside housestaff assignment information, the triage process is further organized and all essential information is presented on the Admission View.

The OnServiceMD Admission View, with these additional features, further enhances the triage process and provides a service, and any triaging provider, with critical information necessary to maintain a high degree of organization and efficiency during even the busiest triage periods.
