Emergency Department Space Utilization: In one project, Med ECG evaluated ways in which to improve space utilization in the Emergency Department to reduce the amount of space occupied by boarders and improve the effective capacity of the Emergency Department for new patients. In a separate project with the Emergency Department, Med ECG evaluated the acuity of Emergency Department visits at Michigan Medicine and the appropriateness of admissions from the Emergency Department compared to other institutions.
Family Planning Clinic: Med ECG worked with the OB-Gyn department to investigate barriers and facilitators to medical miscarriage and abortion services provided in the clinics. MedECG interviewed clinic staff and key stakeholders, and conducted a department-wide survey of family medicine and OB-Gyn providers.
