Accelerated Chest Pain Workup Equity Task Force 


Chest pain evaluations are one of the most frequent reasons adults present to the ED. An ED cardiac work up includes serial lab testing and often leads to post-ED follow-up recommendations, which burden health system capacity. This project involves a retrospective chart review of ongoing clinical care to identify the effects of the implementation of the pathway and troponin assay changes on the evaluation of chest pain at UI Health.
