Informatics Division

Mount Sinai has been a driving force in emergency department informatics, and both major training sites offer the highest levels of technology geared towards patient care. Sinai and Elmhurst EDs have fully implemented electronic health records, including computerized physician order entry, charting and results retreival, as well as integration with clinics and inpatient units. Mount Sinai's emergency department information system (EDIS) has received several awards, and Elmhurst was chosen to pilot an EDIS to be implemented at all city hospitals.
