Preadmission Testing (PAT) Evaluation and Improvement

Many hospitals and healthcare systems have opportunities to better prepare patients prior to day of surgery, which improves overall clinical quality of care, efficiency, and patient outcomes. EHC experts assess current Preadmission Testing processes and clinical protocols to advise on process improvement and implementation of technology platforms. This is all designed to facilitate PAT documentation, capture comorbidities, and reduce day of surgery delays and cancellations.
