TEC Vancouver brings creative minds together to address key issues Emergency Departments (EDs), acute and community care, urban and rural settings face today through technology solutions, virtual care, machine learning, and artificial intelligence, for example:
- Input: long wait times for patients, overcrowding of EDs, improving utilization of acute care systems
- Throughput: operational efficiencies to improve patient flow and quality of care
- Output: safe discharge of patients home and transitions of care from acute to community
- Patient experience in ED: better communication, dialogue, understanding, and access to patient records; improving patient satisfaction
- ED staff work load: work flow augmentation to improve patient care and provider satisfaction
