Implement Door-to-Doc at Your Hospital

Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality logo

Thank you for attending the AHRQ/HRET Web Conference: Implementing the Door-to-Doc Model for Safer Care in the Emergency Department. Door-to-Doc is an extremely successful tool in elevating ED overcrowding, reducing patient wait times, and increasing patient satisfaction, safety, and overall community health.

If you did not have an opportunity to attend the web conference you can view the Archive/On demand version by clicking here.

If you are interested in attending a training session, please download the letter of intent form, complete it, and email it to Chris Hund ( The training sessions will be offered in states/regions where there is strong interest in the Door-to-Doc tool from multiple hospitals.

The downloadable assessments are not prerequisites to attending a training. Instead, they provide you with perspective regarding whether or not you think your organization would be interested in implementing Door-to-Doc.

The first assessment is the Door-to-Doc Change Readiness Tool. This tool helps you see how your ED process will change by implementing Door-to-Doc. It will also help you assess if you already have the factors in place to facilitate the change necessitated by Door-to-Doc implementation.

The second assessment tool is the Door-to-Doc Minimum Volume Requirement Tool. It will help see if your ED volume supports the Split Flow model. It is important to note that even if you get unfavorable scores after completing these assessments you are still invited to attend a training session.
