Purpose and Scope

Usage 1 :

   
Usage Type :    
Intended
Usage Description :    
There is a need for Emergency Care to standardise input measurement to record accurately the type of patients attending across a range of Emergency Care services, which will help inform commissioners –both central and local -as to the likely nature and complexity of patient loads. As the NHS moves to value-based commissioning, it is fundamentally important to be able to measure inputs and outputs. In the UK there has been no single measure of presenting symptoms, and many EDs have historically used their own set of measures or modified existing systems. A system-wide adoption of the Chief Complaint measure will allow patient pathways to be standardised with decision support, and there is ample evidence that this improves quality of care and efficiency.
