Real-time location systems (RTLS) has found extensive application in the healthcare setting, that is shown to improve safety, save cost, and increase patient satisfaction. More specifically, some studies have shown the efficacy of RTLS leading to an improved workflow in the emergency department. However, due to substantial implementation costs of such technologies, hospital administrators show reluctance in RTLS adoption. Our previous preliminary studies with RFID data in the emergency department (ED) demonstrated for the first time the quantification of 'patient alone time' and its relationship to outcomes such as 30-day hospitalization. In this study, we use ED RTLS data to analyze patient-care team contact time (PCTCT) and its relationship to the total treatment length of stay (LOS) in ED. An observational cohort study was performed in the ED using RTLS data from Jan 17 - Sep 17, 2017, which included a total of 51,697 patients. PCTCT within the first hour of a patient's placement in a treatment bed was calculated and its relationship to treatment LOS was analyzed while controlling for confounding factors affecting treatment LOS. Results show that treatment LOS is highly correlated with the ED crowding captured by the patient-perprovider ratio, negatively correlated to the physician and resident visit frequency, and positively correlated to nurse visit frequency. The results can inform designing new guidelines for ideal patient-care team interactions and be used to determine optimal ED staffing levels and care team composition for effective care delivery.
