- Both training sites have comprehensive electronic systems (charting, order entry, tracking, results retrieval)
- Division of Informatics is a national leader in the field
- Specialty Track provides foundation for career-long involvement
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 retrieval, 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.
Sinai's cutting-edge informatics environment, guided by the Division of Informatics provides interested residents with opportunities for involvement in administrative endeavors and research. Residents have taken an active role in the constant enhancement and updating of the systems at both sites, and have been involved with researching the EDIS impact on efficiency, guideline compliance, and patient outcomes. The Senior Specialty Track in informatics gives residents the background and experience to pursue a rewarding career in medical informatics administration or informatics research.
