I am new to this community. An emergency physician in Saskatchewan, I have recently enrolled in Saskatchewan’s clinical Quality Improvement Program (cQIP) (https://hqc.sk.ca/education-learning/learning-programs).
My project will involve creating a senior friendly emergency department locally at my regional hospital. My project needs to be small enough scale to implement over the course of approximately 6 months. I was thinking of implementing a consistent screening tool at triage that the triage nurse can conduct of all seniors that enter the emergency department. I have seen several of them on here. I wonder if anyone has had experience integrating a tool into the Sunrise Clinical Manager. Specifically, I am interested in the interRAI EDS tool. I have the app but wonder if there is an electronic version that could be imbeded into the eHR?
Further, I am interested to connect with others who have taken on a similar project.
@donmelady – do you know if there’s a version of the InterRAI screener that is compatible with the Sunrise Clinical Manager? If not, @kwasko your best bet is probably to suggest to the tech people at Sunrise Clinical Manager that they link their app data with that from the InterRAI app. They seem to be available on the same platforms.
Also – there’s this article under Examples of Change https://geriatric-ed.com/interrai-ed-screener-functional-assessment-ed/ that talks about a hospital in Kitchener that implemented the AUA at triage to improve care. It may be relevant?
Thanks for the input!
