Information requirements for health information exchange supported communication between emergency departments and poison control centers.
The researchers analyzed audio recordings of current telephone-based communications between emergency departments (EDs) and poison control centers (PCCs) in order to describe the information requirements for health information exchange between PCCs and EDs. Their goal was to identify a focused subset of available health information, most relevant to emergency treatment of poison exposure, in order to support generalizable process re-design.
