A cutting-edge information system links patient data from the hospital mainframe, ED database, labs, the radiology department, and the billing department. With a single click, staff can access a patient's lab test results or X-ray from a current or previous ED visit The system has allowed the ED to absorb a 30% increase in volume without adding additional staff. The system provides a shortcut to obtaining lab results, which appear on the screen as soon as they are completed.
