Modern Healthcare - - BEST PRACTICES -

Cre­ate a tool in the elec­tronic health record

that as­signs pa­tients an Emer­gency Sever­ity In­dex score.

En­sure the tool uses an al­go­rithm

that in­cludes the health in­for­ma­tion of pa­tients pre­vi­ously treated at the sys­tem to im­prove ac­cu­racy.

Train triage nurses to use the tool

but also en­sure that staff mem­bers re­tain their au­ton­omy in clin­i­cal de­ci­sion­mak­ing.
