Implemented and live
Ambulance services are implementing a new national clinical information system on a tablet that ambulance officers will use to capture real time information about clinical impressions, medications and other interventions as they provide care to patients.
Two ambulance services and a fleet of 600 ambulances, covering the whole country, seeing about 500,000 patients per year.
How SNOMED CT will be used
SNOMED CT is used extensively in the application to represent sets of clinical impressions, observations and interventions. Reference sets exist for 500 clinical impression concepts and about 100 interventions.
Why SNOMED CT will be used
SNOMED CT allows precise and actionable information to be captured in the fast-paced environment of the ambulance and emergency care in the home.
