Instant Access to Patient Information = More Effective Emergency Healthcare
The traditional mission of an emergency department is to provide trauma and emergency services for people in danger of losing their life or suffering permanent damage to their health. However, this role has evolved over the past several decades. Today, hospital emergency departments are often a community’s only 24/7 medical facility, making true emergencies only a small share of visits. Because emergency care providers often have limited information about a patient’s medical history, treatment can be prolonged or even delayed. Patient confusion or non-compliance with discharge instructions can often lead to unnecessary readmissions or additional medical care.
