Medway Emergency Department manages all clinical and administrative aspects of emergency care as a fully-integrated module of the Medway EPR.
The system collects clinical data throughout the emergency department episode, including medical history, incident triage details, diagnoses, medications, investigations and treatments. It tracks patients as they move through the department and externally to theatre or for investigations, and generates discharge summaries which can be transmitted directly to the GP. A&E whiteboards show the status of individual patients and the department as a whole.
Functions include complete administrative and clinical management of patients; clinical coding; major incident and RTAs management; clinical and administrative alerting.
Medway fully supports the new Emergency Care Data Set (ECDS) which replaces AECDS – CDS type 010.
System C is understood to be the first IT systems supplier to have deployed, integrated and automated ECDS reporting within its core patient administration and emergency department solutions.
