Efficient patient flow is essential for us to deliver on a number of measures related to the remarkable patient experience and our strategic plan.

On April 23 and 24, our patient flow workgroup set up a multidisciplinary team event to redesign our patient’s journey from the time the patient is admitted through the emergency department until the patient is discharged from an inpatient unit.

Written by Heather Aram, vice president of service line and ambulatory development, Novant Health UVA Health System

As a health system, we strive to bring the highest quality care to our patients so they can stay close to home. On May 1, we will go live with exciting enhancements to our neurosciences service offerings including CT profusion, 24-hour code stroke expansion, ‘Code Stroke’ for overhead paging systems, and tele-stroke platform changes.

CT profusion allows patients to qualify for thrombectomy in extended window of six to 24 hours. This technology is used to evaluate acute stroke in a quick and effective manner. Additionally, the technology lets us pinpoint blood flow in the patient through non-invasive imaging and customize a care plan for the patient in an expanded window.
