Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Unveils New Electronic Medical Records System

Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford has unveiled a new electronic medical records system that helps make transfer process of patients to other facilities safer and efficient in the event of a major crisis, such as an earthquake or power outage. It's all part of a Stanford-designed program called TRAIN (Triage by Resource Allocation for IN-patients). TRAIN represents a process to quickly determine what kinds of vehicles and equipment are necessary for continuous patient care during a crisis event, and makes it possible to easily communicate patients' needs to other hospitals or command centers coordinating transfers. Under TRAIN, patients are assigned a color, with red designated for patients in critical condition. These patients need specialized transport, such as an ambulance or military transport, in addition to life-support equipment, such as ventilators and more than two intravenous drips for medication.
