Patient safety is one of the chief concerns of hospitals, as well as efficiency savings and supporting clinicians. There is now compelling evidence that the implementation of standardised orders, like Action Sets will reduce costs and improve consistency, accuracy and efficiency of patient management.
Action Sets cover all phases of the patient journey, from Admission to Referrals & Discharge Planning, and they can be tailored to the patient’s medical history, examination and response to treatment.
Action Sets, like other standardised orders, can be integrated into an EPR system, or used as a standalone tool. They are available as:
- Computerised Physician Order Entry – integrated, actionable checklists accessed via EHR systems
- Action Sets Foundation - templates for development within local systems (digital) or standalone use (paper)
- Action Sets Academic - referential care protocols to help train students in the use of standardised, evidence-based clinical resources
Both foundation and integrated options include links to Evidence Summaries (additional relevant detail from BMJ Evidence Centre and government guidelines) and full web access to Clinical Evidence and Best Practice.
