Emergency

This team is comprised of care providers, nurses, unit clerks and technical professionals from across VCH, PHSA and PHC.

The team works collaboratively with other CST teams to design and configure FirstNet, a Cerner module that automates a wide range of functions performed in the Emergency Department. These functions include - but are not limited to - registration, triage, patient tracking, assessments, orders and documentation.

This work will help to improve patient safety, and improve quality and continuity of care by enabling better integration with other departments and health care teams.
