Testimonial by an ALERT® user
Susan Owens, a nurse working with the triage at TCRHCC's Emergency Department, said that navigation in the "Single page" is very user-friendly and that she did not encounter any type of difficulty in adapting to the "new image".
Regarding the new Registered Nurse's simplified profile for the Emergency Department, the healthcare professional considers the new functionality to be visually very simple and user-friendly, the navigation buttons to be very intuitive and encountered no difficulties when searching for past information.
The nurse also proffered comments on other existing functionalities. She highlighted the Shortcuts, which are a very quick way to enter information and to navigate in the application, and further remarked that this way to access information had saved her a lot of time. The fact that information is transferred between episodes was another functionality mentioned by Susan Owens, as it allows professionals to match episodes (she gave the case where patients do not mention having allergies, as an example).
