Putting the Rapid into Rapid Response Teams

By: Toronto East General and Cerner Canada

Our team will showcase the improvements in care coordination across multiple disciplines that is possible for the care of patients outside of the Intensive Care setting. Using Early Warning Systems (MEWS and PEWS) and automation to support them, rapidly deteriorating patients will be referred to the hospital’s Rapid Response Team more reliably and earlier. The team will build on existing Computerized Provider Order Entry and Clinical Documentation and add the Cerner Lighthouse RRT module.
