Countdown Checklist W2 L-04: Unburden as Possible

Continuing a list of essential actions for Wave 2 physicians readying for Connect Care Launch Oct 24, 2020...
  • Unburden
Current clinical services have limited ability to control patient census or clinical workloads. However, this is the time to make every effort to ease the launch by re-considering the following:
  • Do everything possible on inpatient services to expedite discharges and decrease occupancy. 
  • Consider rehabilitation or other community services outside Wave 2 sites that might be available for transitional transfer. 
  • Transfer all patients who could be repatriated to other hospitals within the pre-launch week, wherever possible. These hospitals are informed and primed to prioritize Wave 2 sending sites. 
  • Identify and flag complex continuing patients who may need more cutover attention during the pre-launch week. 
  • Ensure that any possible clinician reserves are mobilized, including sick roster backup and any other resources that can be leveraged to increase physician supports at launch.
  • Lighten ambulatory and surgical loads in any way possible for next week.
  • Above all, make sure that you and colleagues have the Connect Care access you need and are working in PRD this week to familiarize and personalize.
