Description:
A key priority for the HSE and the newly formed Special Delivery Unit is to address excessive Emergency Department waits. In order to achieve this particularly in an era of austerity, priority focus is being given to improving systems, practices and processes both internal and external to the hospital system such that capacity is used optimally to support high quality safe care and reduce avoidable patient delays. The standards and recommended practices for Integrated Care and compliance with the standards therein provides a fundamental evidence based and measurable platform to support us in how we manage the patient journey in, through and out of the acute hospital system to deliver integrated efficient and safe care. It is national policy and critically has the support of all key stakeholder groups.
