Creating an Acuity and Productivity Measurement Tool for an Inpatient Palliative Care Service
The Palliative Care CNS and Physician Faculty identified the need to create a tool to measure the acuity of Palliative patients at an academic medical center. This tool assesses factors such as common patient diagnoses and requirements, average time of visits and whether daily visits were required. This tool has also demonstrated value in measuring the productivity of Palliative team members.
