Deteriorating Patients

Track information on cases where medical emergency team (MET) or rapid response team (RRT) calls occur to see ways to improve performance and prevent harm.

 

This module is available to assist in reviewing cases for patients that deteriorate in hospital. Record details of MET or Rapid Response calls and indicators of deterioration prior to an event. Results of cases can be quickly summarised to provide a system-wide perspective of any issues or areas for improvement.

Report routinely on selected indicators such as total emergency calls over time to monitor performance in near real-time. Use the Metrixcare Visual Thinking tools to examine perspectives that may highlight clusters for further attention using dimensions such as age, gender or location. Track outcomes from emergency calls including a universal measure of harm along with ideas for improvement and progress on projects.
