Abstract

Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore has replaced a widely used triage system with a new decision-support tool that enables nurses at triage in the ED to better differentiate patients based on acuity level. The electronic tool, dubbed e-triage, is able to quickly factor in a patient’s medical history, vital signs, and chief complaint, and compare this information to thousands of other patients.
