eTriage can prioritise patients upon arrival, notifying doctors of high acuity and urgent patients.
Vodafone in Health and eConsult Health, a leading digital triage and remote consultation solution provider, today announced a collaboration to help reduce patient waiting times and enhance patient safety. The collaboration intends to provide equal access to healthcare by reducing wait times and streamlining care for patients with urgent need.
eConsult Health’s digital patient triage solution, eTriage, was developed by clinicians to help NHS Emergency Departments and Urgent Treatment Centres prioritise patients upon arrival. By means of a self-registration process, eTriage collects patient comprehensive histories to facilitate early identification of sick patients and reduces the general waiting time for emergency treatment. This ensures better waiting room safety, streamlined patient pathways and improved patient satisfaction.
Underpinning this is Vodafone’s secure digital infrastructure, enabling healthcare providers to accelerate adoption of the digital platform and ensure adaptability to scale based on patient demand. eConsult’s platform and Vodafone’s reliable, award-winning network will ensure service continuity once deployed, enabling healthcare providers to reduce patient waiting times.
