System Definitions
EPR – An electronic patient/health record is a digital version of a patient's paper chart.

MDI – Medical Device Integration refers to the interoperable linking of medical bedside devices (such as Patient Monitors, Ventilators etc.) to clinical information systems (such as an EPR) to facilitate automated exchange of data between the systems, removing manual paper driven processes.

PAS – Core enterprise systems, containing a Master Patient Index. Typically used by NHS Trusts to document the patient journey e.g. patient arrival tracking, patient identification, clinician who managed the appointment, the treatment the patient received, diagnosis and next steps. This core functionality, required by every NHS Trust typically covers admission, discharge and transfer.

CIS – Is a general name given to any system which collects and stores patient data. These systems may be deployed at department level, hospital level or indeed across entire healthcare systems.

Yours faithfully,

Gareth Hennedy
