North York General Hospital's Charlotte & Lewis Steinberg Emergency implemented the first phase of Cerner's emergency module, called, FirstNet. Tracking and triage is the first component of this eCare project and was designed by North York General to meet the needs of our hospital to ensure we have the ability to integrate patient information with our other Cerner systems.
