Emis Web Viewer

Mersey Care clinical staff in the Local Services Division now have access to patient information from a service user’s records held in the GP’s EMIS Web clinical records system. Depending on the clinician’s role, this may include access to information such as medication, test results, referrals, allergies and diagnoses.

Emis Web helps clinical staff and thereby service users. Les Irving, Community Mental Health Nurse based in the Community Hub at Baird House said “It has helped drastically reduce the number of outstanding annual health checks still required. There is less need for repeat investigations such as ECG and blood tests”. At weekends and out of hours, the system is invaluable, for instance, by being able to see what medication a service user is on when being admitted to a ward.
