Patient Tracking is designed to help ease the strain that busy urgent and emergency care teams face. An additional module in EMIS Web, it gives out-of-hospital providers, such as urgent care centres, walk-in centres and minor injury units, the ability to track and manage care delivery to patients as they flow through their department.
Take control of unplanned admissions
Since Patient Tracking works within EMIS Web, it's familiar and easy to use. It also means that clinicians can quickly access other parts of the clinical system, with registration and consultations screens – and a patient’s Summary Care Record (SCR) – just a click away.
Whether you want to see specific details or an entire overview of a patient's care, you can quickly get a grasp of a patient’s situation with Patient Tracking's customisable views and tools:
- colour-coded indicators show how long a patient has been in your department – allowing you to quickly spot potential breaches and understand if you are meeting four-hour targets
- view the severity of a patient’s case throughout their time in your care, driven by Manchester Triage
- gain an overview of a patient’s details, including their age, location, presenting complaint, assigned clinician and additional notes
- set due times for tasks and view last and next actions.
It’s also easy for clinicians to gain a clear overview of a patient’s journey within the service with patient timeline. This details activities that have already taken place and their timings, outstanding activities and a patient’s location – which can be easily updated via links.
