We continually seek new ways to reduce waiting times and improve the emergency care experience. Recent enhancements include streamlined triage and registration process, so patients are examined sooner, and electronic tracking board and electronic health records, resulting in increased efficiency, better communication among healthcare providers, and enhanced safety and quality.
Our Clinical Navigation Program helps patients with cancer and other serious illnesses arrange and coordinate the care they need, from that first clinical finding to diagnosis, treatment plan, and follow-up care. For patients unaccustomed to navigating the healthcare system, the process of arranging tests, consultations, and treatments can seem overwhelming. By connecting patients to the appropriate care providers as early as possible, our clinical navigation team can reduce stress, eliminate barriers to prompt treatment, and improve health outcomes. Patients typically are referred to the program from our Alfred Z. Solomon Emergency Center, one of our urgent care centers, or by their primary care provider. Patients can also reach out to the program without a referral.
Teleneurology gives us access to board-certified neurologists for consultations on stroke care and other emergencies.

Together, they examine the patient, review images and lab results, and decide on the best course of treatment. Teleneurology also allows us to bring remote neurologists to the bedside for routine consults on inpatient care.
