Emergency Care Summary

The Emergency Care Summary Management module is an amalgamated approach to Emergency Care Summary (ECS). Dependant on patient consent, it allows important patient information to be electronically shared with clinicians who do not have access to the core GP information. Relevant information is extracted from your clinical system and uploaded as part of a scheduled upload to the SCI Store ready to be used if and when required.

The main advantages of the Emergency Care Summary Management screen are:

  • Combined interface for Emergency Care Summary (ECS), Key Information Summary (KIS) and Palliative Care Summary (PCS) data entry.
  • Traffic light indicator of patient consents for ECS, KIS and PCS to enable easy identification of transmission status.
  • Fast update of consent status within the ECS Management screen.
  • Easy visibility of data common the both KIS and PCS.
  • Tick box selection of Medical History to include in upload, no need to use Problems.
  • List and select patients with KIS or PCS summaries from within the ECS Summary Management screen.
  • Direct access to the existing Palliative Care reports.
Note- Please contact your health board to enable the ECS screen (including KIS and ePCS), convert existing special notes and if applicable import special notes from Adastra out of hours service.
