The new University of Colorado Hospital (UCH) ED opened in April 2013. Designed to be patient-centered to provide state-of-the-art emergency care in a modern facility, the ED serves as an international model for excellence.
Over 100,000 ED visits and over 13,000 ED observation admissions annually
Internationally-renowned for innovation in ED flow, operations, and experience. We have hosted leaders from more than 40 other emergency departments for site visits or consultations and published nearly a dozen peer-reviewed articles detailing implementations and outcomes.
Emergency Medicine faculty are integral members of the Virtual Health Center team, allowing community-based hospital care teams and clinics to access specialty care remotely.
These providers can observe patients through the use of highly sensitive cameras and speakers in a patient’s room. Complex algorithms continuously evaluate a patient’s condition and alert the Virtual Health Center when readings indicate possible problems. The Virtual Health Center team then confers with the care team at the patient bedside.
The Virtual Health Center care team provides surveillance and monitoring for stroke, trauma, sepsis, and other high-acuity conditions.
