Hospitals need to rethink their ED operations if they want to realistically address the sorry state of ED facilities all over the country!
Many ED facilities were designed for a different business, as well as volumes and complexities well below what is expected of a modern ED.

The focus of this operational redesign is to untangle the varied services provided by EDs, that currently generate one-size-fits-all patient care funnels, backlogs and extended wait times.
