Clara Maass Medical Center (CMMC) a 445-bed Belleville, N.J.-based hospital has announced it will utilize its emergency department electronic health record system (EHR), EDIMS, in providing emergency medical services at the new soccer stadium in Harrison, N.J., Red Bulls Arena. EDIMS will allow for a better and more seamless exchange of patient information from the arena’s medical center to the hospital, expediting the admissions process and care if/when patients are transferred to the hospital.

CMMC will have an on-site, fully stocked first aid-room at the arena, manned by a physician and a physician’s assistant, as well as an ambulance and two emergency technicians. Medical staff for events can fully and securely access the EDIMS system through an on-site computer and a VPN connection.

The on-site emergency first aid room has already proved useful. During the first stadium event, an elderly man experiencing shortness of breath was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and administered a complete set of medications to stabilize him. He was transferred to the Medical Center’s emergency room, where his records from the stadium were already in the system. He was admitted to the hospital and released after four days.
