Wirral Gets 'Track and Trigger' Alerts

12 July 2012

Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is to implement a "track and trigger" alert system in its A&E department.

The new alerting system will mean that nurse observations of patient vital signs will be recorded in the patient's electronic record. Vital patient observations will then be viewable from anywhere in the hospital and used to trigger other care processes.

The trust will incorporate the alerts into its Millennium EPR system at the end of May, becoming the first Cerner customer in the UK to complete such an implementation.
