Week 12: Precedent – eTriage

eTriage is a digital triage solution for NHS Emergency Departments and Urgent Treatment Centres developed in the United Kingdom. eTriage was designed to perform automatic check-in and triage patients upon arrival to a urgent care clinic. eTriage speeds up the streaming process, identifying sick patients earlier and reducing the wait time. This is an approach I am looking into for my project, going digital in healthcare is risky but has a lot of benefits for both the patient and health provider. It is interesting to see how other countries have started exploring eTriage. One of their users responded, “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”.
