Abstract
Many gastrointestinal endoscopic procedures, such as colonoscopy and esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) are highly standardized. Nevertheless, variations in outcomes, including patient?s experience, clinical outcome and overall satisfaction, are still frequently observed. One of the primary causes of outcome variation is lack of or insufficient care coordination provided during the procedure intake process. In this study, we followed both the patient and information flow from the time of check-in to discharge. In order to plan for a future GI intake process, one that provides better care coordination and enhanced outcomes, a computer simulation model was built and used as an analytical tool. The multiple-scenario simulation model has captured changes in the outcomes in relation to certain process parameters, such as staffing level, communication effectiveness, efficiency of information handling, and space capacity. The results illustrate that well managed information flow with optimized use of the electronic medical record can significantly strengthen the continuity of care between GI specialty providers and referring providers. Meanwhile, outcome is not only determined by the performance of the provider during the procedure, but also heavily impacted by the care-coordination team as well as the integration of the medical information among care providers. Thus, it is important to build an open-access scheduling environment serving as a solid foundation for care coordination.
