Proposed acquisition of EMIS Group

Minor injuries unit saw half of all patients within an hour

14 Mar 2018

Urgent care clinicians in South Gloucestershire saw half of all patients within one hour in January. It's all thanks to record sharing with local GPs using EMIS Web, plus EMIS Health's new Patient Tracking module.

Yate Minor Injuries Unit, run by not-for-profit social enterprise Sirona care & health, is saving hours of time after implementing record sharing via EMIS Web. The service is only the second service in the UK to use the Patient Tracking module. In January, 99% of people were seen and treated within four hours, exceeding the Government’s target of 95%. Half of all patients were seen within one hour. The system offers an at-a-glance update of how long people have been in the unit, making it easy to monitor waiting times.
