Been a while since I posted anything – sorry for the slow productivity…
This is a mini post.
Recently Scott Weingart of the EMCrit podcast had an episode on his new home hospital, Janus General. This is a virtual hospital inspired by the folks at St Emlyn’s, a virtual hospital and blog site situation in the UK.
Why a virtual hospital? Because it allows you to retain patient confidentiality to a greater degree, and it allows flexibility with what your “hospital” provides.
Janus isn’t the right fit for me, since I’m Canadian trained/insured/etc and we have a different level of litigation where I’m from. However, with Scott’s blessing, I’ve opened a Canadian partner site to Janus. As of this post, unless otherwise stated, all cases presented on the Chart Review will Canadian Janus General hospital. Canadian Janus is a community ED in Canada, with Canadian policies. The goal is to provide a Canadian slant to emergency medicine and healthcare. We transfer out major traumas, STEMIs and neurosurgical cases.
If you wish to situate your cases at Canadian Janus General, feel free.
