Abstract:
Purpose: This was a descriptive study, using secondary data analysis, to determine if the interventions of a multidisciplinary team resulted in better patient outcomes than those achieved through routine care. Theoretical Framework: Donabedian's structure-process-outcome framework was the theoretical foundation for the study, which was derived from a larger Medicare/Medicaid Demonstration Project in acute care hospitals in the Southeast. Methods (Design, Sample, Setting, Measures, Analysis): The research question is: What is the effect of a multidisciplinary team on selected outcomes for patients with diagnosis of Acute MI (n=43), CHF (n=114), CABG (n=80)? Patients who met criteria for the demonstration project were included in the three-month data collection period for this study (June-September 2005). Baseline data were obtained on a non-equivalent control group for a three-month period before the start of this study (January- March 2005). All of the data for this study were collected retrospectively. Patients in both groups were adults 18 years and older, who were admitted to an 88 bed cardiovascular hospital within a major medical center. Results: In order to facilitate patient management by multidisciplinary teams, patient profiles and a "real time" interactive database were designed and loaded onto wireless lap top computers. The ability of team members to access patient profiles and record interventions in "real time" enhanced the validity and reliability of the data retrieved on the indicators for each diagnostic group. Conclusions and Implications: In this presentation, an overview will be provided of the selection and composition of the multidisciplinary team, the algorithm used by team members for clinical decision making, and the results of the interventions on the core indicators for each diagnostic group (Acute MI, CHF, CABG). The results demonstrated the advantages of a multidisciplinary team in improving patient outcomes on the majority of indicators established for each diagnostic group. [Symposium presentation]
