Overcrowding and delays in the emergency department (ED) can put patient care in jeopardy and reduce patient satisfaction. The epoc® System provides ED staff with laboratory-accurate test results in seconds. With fast, reliable information at hand, providers can more quickly diagnose and care for patients. Time to treat could be greatly reduced, and patient outcomes could improve dramatically.
When test results are available immediately, the anxiety of patients and their families can be alleviated and patient satisfaction increased.
Rapid results in the ED may lead to:
- Decreased time to treatment or diagnosis
- Improved patient disposition decisions and increased throughput
- Rapid response to patients presenting with emergent conditions
- More efficient and cost-effective utilization of healthcare resources
