    I’m interested in reviewing project scope, metrics, and financials related to telemetry utilization.  I’m currently scoping a potential project.  Can anyone provide any thoughts or insights as I get started? Thank you!

    Debbie,
    Were you able to capture information regarding your telemetry utilization project?  If so would you share your findings?

    Jerry,
    Yes, I was able to collect some data and summarize the results.  That was back in 2004.
    1301 cases were logged; avg hours on monitor 54:28; std dev 44:39; # cases on monitor > 48 hrs 556; minimum 3 min; max 427:06.
    Time from monitor D/C’d to pt transfer/discharge: avg 21:53; std dev 38:22; # of cases on cardiac unit > 24 hrs after monitor D/C’d 366
