You will probably want Database Request Process, but not sure where in here.

Can you make sure that the following lives in the pages linked above, and no duplicating details remain in here?

  • Previously, a single database record represented a patient under the care of a single ICU service, regardless of physical location. Thus when a patient moved from one ICU service to another (e.g. MICU to SICU at HSC) a new record was begun, and the same for when an IM ward patient moved from service to service (including even moving from teaching to non-teaching and vise versa). But this is artificial, because from the patient perspective, such moves are really parts of a single episode of inpatient care.
  • Our eventual goal is to have a single record include all such changes and comprise all direct ICU-to-ICU changes (and all ward-to-ward changes) even across different Winnipeg hospitals. We are not there yet though.
  • Beginning 10/1/2020 for Grace Hospital, and 10/15/2020 for Health Sciences Centre and St. Boniface Hospital, we moved part-way in this direction by: (a) having all moves within IM ward services in a single hospital be a single record, (b) having direct movement back and forth between MICU and SICU at Health Sciences Centre being a single record. See PatientFollow Project for details on the transition. Thus, the period on any of these ICU services: IICU at HSC, ICMS as St. B, CICU at St. B, and the ICU at Grace Hospital --- is represented in a single record in the database.
