What is eTriage?
eTriage is a digital triage solution for NHS Emergency Departments and Urgent Treatment Centres, developed by clinicians. eTriage was designed to automatically checks-in and prioritise (triage) patients upon arrival to an emergency department. eTriage speeds up the streaming process, identifying sick patients earlier, reducing the waiting time and time to treatment within the department and delivering improved patient journeys.
Using eTriage, history take and check-in is carried out by patients on arrival, thanks to a bank of tablets with the clinically developed eTriage software. This means the patient only gives their history once, and they are automatically prioritised by clinical need, helping you identify your sickest patients quickly. eTriage is currently live in St Richard’s Hospital and Chichester Hospital Emergency Department, and Queen Mary’s, Bexley, Urgent Treatment Centre.
How does eTriage work?
4 minutes from arrival to triage
eTriage automatically books in and triages NHS patients by clinical need, ensuring you can deliver the right care to the right patients.
eTriage enables A&Es to work at their full potential
eTriage speeds up the streaming process, takes robust and consistent patient histories and improves patient flow. This enables clinicians to spend more time with their patients, getting them to the right place at the right time. eTriage automatically identifies urgent care cases first — and has saved lives.
eTriage has already helped save lives.
Within minutes of entering the hospital eTriage has identified urgent cases with potentially life threatening symptoms so you can prioritise who to give care to.
"When I have been here in the past I have had to fill out a long piece of paper. eTriage asked me everything I needed and was so much quicker"
"Check-in using the tablets was smart and efficient. All staff were pleasant. The nurse who saw my daughter explained her examination clearly and I came away feeling that I fully understood the diagnosis. I was seen and out within an hour."
"I was very satisfied as I was too unwell to attend the surgery but eConsult enabled me to get the medication I needed within less than 24 hours."
"It uncovered a potentially dangerous health issue I wasn't aware of."
