ONE Call New Direct Admit Process

As part of the SD-24 initiative, we are working on creating a quick, one-call direct admit process for physicians to direct admit a patient to the hospital. 

Once the physician calls the number, they will be connected to a hospitalist physician (peds or general), who will then take the intake information for the patient.
Once plans have been made for the patient, the referring physician will send over any supporting documents for them including demographics, blood/lab work, imaging, and other supporting documentation. 

This new process will be going live on April 1! 
Communication on this new process will be sent out to local EMS stations and doctor's offices. This process will also be promoted with our new McLaren Hospitalist Group.
