Six California hospitals collaborate to improve ED care for patients

From Becker’s:

Six hospitals located in the eastern region of the San Francisco Bay Area, also known as the East Bay, have created a care collaborative to harnesses emergency department data to improve care for the area’s sickest and most vulnerable patients.

Ultimately, the goal of the initiative is to facilitate collaborative, cost-effective treatment for patients who turn to EDs as the first point of care, sometimes as frequently as three times per week or more. As part of the collaborative, these hospitals have agreed to use a secure data system to share patient health records, care plans and other important care information between EDs in real time.
