Enhanced Recovery After Surgery through EMR Integration
June 18, 2019, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Stacey Johnston, MD, Associate CMIO for Hospitalist Informatics, and Megan Argabright, Clinical Informaticist, Baptist Health (Jacksonville FL). Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) is an evidence-based interdisciplinary care delivery model that focuses on quickly moving the evidence developed from surgical research to bedside patient care, making a more immediate positive impact on patient recovery. Designed to reduce perioperative stress, maintain postoperative physiological function, and accelerate recovery after surgery, Baptist Health implemented ERAS to minimize variance in clinical practice and improve patient outcomes. In this session, you’ll learn how Baptist Health’s standardization of ERAS components using clinical decision support has led to a 70% decrease in readmissions, 47% reduction in complications and decreased length of stay by 50%.
