Lehigh Valley eliminates ED diversions with Epic

Getting patients seen faster

Lehigh Valley Health Network reduced their discharge turnaround time and completely eliminated ED diversions. Previously, they had to divert ED patients to other hospitals 72 hours out of every month. Epic dashboards and capacity planning helped them streamline their transfer and discharge process – saving them 11 hours per week in management time and getting patients homebound an average of 46 minutes earlier.
