INTRODUCTION: Emergency medical technicians in Japan have experienced difficulties in identifying hospitals that will accept patients with severe finger injuries. We developed and managed a system named Interactive Teletriage using mobile phone photos to aid efficient patient transportation.
The U Special Kids Program (USK) at the University of Minnesota provides care coordination and case management services by telephone to children with special health-care needs. We measured the effect of the USK programme on hospital resource utilization using a retrospective record review.
OBJECTIVE: Anorexia nervosa (AN) is a serious eating disorder marked by self-induced underweight. In patients with AN, the avoidance of emotions appears to be a central feature that is reinforced during the acute state of the disorder.
We describe a telemedicine application for emergency management in Stroke Units, where prompt decisions must be taken, often knowing neither the clinical history nor the stroke symptoms onset modality.
Recent audits within our hospital suggest that especially during peak phases the patient flow from our acute admission units downstream into hospital beds is not directed in the most efficient way and patients may be placed inappropriately.
