Client Project

Western Sydney LHD - Dynamic Patient Population List for ED

Client Need

Our client was seeking a way to enable medical consultants and multidisciplinary teams to view ED patient information from within the EMR PowerChart application without physically needing to attend ED or log into the ED specific EMR solution.

Western Sydney LHD  - Dynamic Patient Population List for ED

Our Approach

We designed an ED specific dashboard that was available within the EMR PowerChart application from anywhere in the hospital and identified in real time, patients in the ED, their tracking information and full medical record.

The dashboard featured:

  • Access to the ED Watch List from within PowerChart
  • Ability to see all patients in ED department
  • Ability to see all relevant ED specific information including that which is typically only available on the tracking board
  • Ability to drill into the chart for more information as required

Outcomes

  • All clinicians across the organisation can see and review ED patients from any EMR enabled device to allow for better planning and time management
  • We eliminated the need for multiple logins and icons for access to ED specific software, saving ongoing management costs.
