Through the implementation, Sunnybrook hopes to improve patient throughput in its emergency room and enhance overall hospital capacity and operational efficiency, while sustaining quality patient care and satisfaction, according to Eclipsys.
Sunrise Patient Flow is also being used to support Sunnybrook in adhering to the Wait Time Strategy of the Ontario Ministry of Health (MOH) and Long-Term Care and MOH’s comprehensive ER Strategy, a government plan that sets provincial targets for time spent in the emergency room. The solution will enable Sunnybrook to report wait times to the Local Health Integration Network, minimizing the burden associated with manually tracking and reporting such data, it says.
With a staff of more than 10,000, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre provides care for more than 1 million patients each year. The hospital is affiliated with the University of Toronto and is one of Canada’s premier academic health sciences centers.
