WebQI now includes Length Of Stay (LOS) Management and Review functionality. The functionality has been deployed within Subacute units at Monash Health.
The expected data of discharge is recorded after initial review of a patient's admission - this is a clinical assessment that is determined after discussion within the clinical team.
The FIM (Functional Impairment Measure) score on admission (and discharge) is also recorded. This allows a determination of an expected length of stay. This expected LOS is in comparison to a national cohort.
At suitable intervals (eg. fortnightly), the LOS of all patients is reviewed. The patients are listed in priority order, with those patients whose LOS is above a threshold listed first.
The functionality is being expanded to include ANSNAC classifications, in direct association with a patient's impairment.
