The PROV-ED Project aims to disseminate innovation, by sourcing and scaling value-based emergency department (ED) initiatives with demonstrated outcomes. Initiatives are selected for statewide rollout via an EOI calling for applications, followed by selection process culminating in the “PROV-ED Pitchfest”. The 2019 Pitchfest resulted in the selection of six initiatives, which are currently being implemented in EDs across the state.
Four new initiatives were selected in the 2020 Pitchfest and the PROV-ED project team is currently working hard to develop the statewide ED plan for these initiatives.
Reducing Urine Contamination in Emergency (RedUCE)
Resus Medication Safety (ReMS)
Safe Ventilation in Emergency (SaVE)
Safe, Well organised, Inter-Facility Transfer (SWIFT)
By facilitating the adoption of these successfully piloted initiatives, PROV-ED is helping to spread innovation beyond hospital and HHS boundaries.
It also builds capacity building for health service redesign and quality improvement through multidisciplinary clinician engagement, workforce skills development and by creating a model for widespread implementation of initiatives.
