How to Model your Emergency Response to Triage I-O Patients

This webinar was originally recorded on Monday, December 5, 2016

Gain strategies to prepare your multidisciplinary team to respond to—and triage—your at-risk patients. Learn how one cancer program, inspired by practice transformation requirements in the Oncology Care Model, instituted a program to address symptom management, staff training, and patient education needs, resulting in greater access to coordinated care, a reduction in hospital and emergency department admissions, and cost savings.

This approach has been successful in achieving some of the outcome goals – including extending hours with specific care for patients by specialized team (inpatient oncology nurses), and avoidance of ED visits and hospital admissions.
