Christchurch live with electronic ordering of ECGs

The cardiology and radiology departments at Christchurch Hospital have swapped a fax-based system for an electronic process for ordering, triaging and signing off echocardiograms (ECGs).

Clinicians can now order an ECG electronically with requests reaching cardiology in real time and actioned according to priority. Canterbury DHB plans to phase out the use of analogue fax machines by the end of the year.
