Emergency Medicine Services

The emergency department is the front door to your hospital. More than two-thirds of admitted patients begin their journey in the E.D, yet the unpredictable nature of emergency medicine often leads to a challenging care environment. Our Emergency Medicine Services address the issues caused by this unpredictability to improve patient outcomes, patient experience and operational efficiency.
Size and Scale to Serve

Virtual Health Integration

Our Virtual Health Services raise the standard for emergency care, providing safe, innovative and scalable solutions.

Emergency Medicine Advanced Practice Provider (APP)

Combining on-site APP coverage with the expertise of a board-certified emergency physician via two-way audio-video, Envision Virtual Health’s Emergency Medicine APP model reduces unnecessary transfers, improves the patient experience and enhances overall care quality.

Tele-Triage Intake Program

Our Virtual Health Tele-Triage program allows for rapid “staffing up” to manage intermittent and unpredictable volume surges. Our virtual providers – who are ready within minutes of being called – use secure platforms to complete a visual exam and initiate diagnostic testing in real time with the help of nursing personnel. The many benefits of this program include the ability to reduce patient wait times and provide consistent quality care while managing staffing costs.

EMERGENCY MEDICINE TRANSITIONAL CARE

Forty percent of emergency department discharges fail to keep their scheduled follow-up appointments. Distance from the clinic and the availability of transportation are two factors in the decision not to attend a follow-up visit. Using providers trained to assess and treat patients who may require ongoing complex care, Envision Virtual Health allows patients to complete their follow-up visits in the comfort of their own homes or wherever it is most convenient for them.

EM/HM Integration

More than 140 facilities use our emergency and hospital medicine integrated model in which EM clinicians work together with hospitalists to ensure continuity of care for patients. This happens through shared accountability, improved communication and streamlined admissions processes, all of which reduce average length of stay and readmissions and result in happier, healthier patients.

Clinicians who work with Envision Physician Services understand the importance of each specialty’s role in elevating the overall efficiency and care quality of the emergency department.

Our Expertise in Action

Prior to partnering with Envision Physician Services, this facility faced several barriers to providing patient-centric care, including leadership changes, outdated emergency department (E.D.) workflow procedures and poor collaboration between physician and nurse leadership. As a result, the hospital performed poorly in key workflow and patient experience metrics:

  • Length of Stay (LOS)
  • Left Without Being Seen (LWBS)
  • Left Against Medical Advice (AMA)

Using our Lean process improvement methodologies, Envision worked with hospital leadership to improve workflow and patient experience by implementing new analytic tools and establishing best practices in operations and staffing.

Envision wanted to help me be the best clinician I could be, to invest in my growth, and it’s a ripple effect: The better a leader a clinician is, the better a department is run, and the patient receives the best care possible.
