Assessing the impact and safety of the use of the My Health Record system in emergency departments (the hospital emergency department review)
The scope of this review considered any relevant event or circumstance that could result in unintended or unnecessary clinical harm to a patient as a result of use of the My Health Record system as part of a hospital’s ED workflow.
Clinician uses of My Health Record ED considered in scope for this review were:
- On a patient’s arrival to ED, access to a Shared Health Summary (SHS) in a patient’s My Health Record
- In ED triage, access to the SHS to assist the initial patient assessment, where appropriate.
