Subcutaneous Recombinant Human Hyaluronidase: Workflow Analysis and Emergency Department Design

2014-08-27 03:17:43 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This is an observational study examining the workflow dynamics and training requirements that support effective use of subcutaneous hydration delivery (a newly FDA approved Baxter product) compared to standard intravenous hydration/medication delivery. Emergency departments already using both Subcutaneous Recombinant Human Hyaluronidase and standard IV hydration will be enrolled. Patients will be receiving the hydration method selected by their emergency department physician and the investigators will then observe:

1. Patient Throughput

- Efficiency of patient care and treatment areas

- Safety of patient care and treatment areas

- Support Service processes that impact patient flow

2. Clinical Outcomes

- Time to conversion from dehydration to hydration'

- Rate of complications

3. Satisfaction

- Staff satisfaction with Subcutaneous hydration vs. Intravenous hydration

- Patient satisfaction with Subcutaneous hydration vs. Intravenous hydration
