Measuring the Performance of Respiratory Care Assessment Teams
John W. Salyer, MBA RRT FAARC Primary Children's Medical Center, Salt Lake City, Utah
If you build a team of respiratory "assessors", and empower them to employ care protocols, how can you determine if these teams are "working"? This lecture will define how teams can be evaluated and what clinical, utilization, and financial measures can be used. Detailed descriptions on how to get and present these data will be included.
