Award-winning Clinical Governance
eTriage’s red flagging system detects patients who report serious symptoms or a medical emergency so that your clinicians are alerted to those needing urgent care immediately Patients are triaged in line with the Manchester Triage System, helping you improve your Urgent and Emergency Department safety.
Our Clinical Governance Board comprises of consultant or equivalent seniority NHS GPs, clinicians and specialists from emergency departments, including paramedics, intensive care, trauma, surgery, HEMS, paediatrics, and prescribing pharmacists. The Board meets regularly to undertake content reviews and ensure that eConsult always adheres to the latest guidance and the highest safety standards.
Our Clinical Governance Lead and Information Governance Lead meet monthly to maintain our hazard logs and safety case and identify any new potential risks or Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) requirements.
We have followed the MHRA guidance on medical devices and have appointed a Medical Safety Officer, and applied the standards defined in DCB0129/DCB0160 and will continue to do so.
