This paper proposes a study in the form of a qualitative examination of the effects of the implementation of an outreach service and modified early warning system on re-admissions to critical care. An enormous body of literature suggests a need for outreach services in the medical community, particularly in large hospitals. Re-admissions are generally considered a measure of critical care quality in the field of medicine. The paper shows that, generally, outreach teams are considered a mechanism for improving the overall critical care delivery system and quality of medical care service. Thus, the researcher proposes that the implementation of an outreach service and modified early warning system will improve the overall quality of medical care services within hospitals and potentially reduce the re-admissions rates.

From the Paper:

"Bristow et. al (2000) finds in a study conducted of patients at a hospital utilizing an outreach program that fewer patients were unexpectedly admitted to the ICU and there were fewer non-DNR deaths in a hospital using this type of approach than in other hospitals. Further the study suggests that outreach programs and other critical care teams may have important "implications for patient care in hospitals." Bristow et. al (2000) suggests a need exists for further large scale studies of outreach programs in hospital institutions large and small."
