EmergencyList is based on an award winning system originally built by Dr David Nunn, a Consultant Anaesthetist at Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital (NNUH), where his system has been in use since 2007.
After repeated requests for the system from clinicians, anaesthetists and theatre coordinators that had moved on to other NHS trusts, Dr Nunn approached Accent Design to develop a more robust version of his system that could be configured for different organisational requirements and integrated with different hospital systems.
As this new version of the system was developed, new features such as starvation times and support for government incentives were added, along with new safeguarding and data governance measures.
Dr. David Nunn MA (Oxon), MB BChir (Cantab), PhD (Cantab), FRCA (Lond)
Dr Nunn received his undergraduate training in Oxford, prior to moving to Cambridge to do his PhD in intracellular calcium signalling and the inositol trisphosphate second messenger system. He completed his clinical training in Cambridge, and has remained in East Anglia since qualifying. His current interests are in medical information systems, and has written a number of medically-based computer programs. As well as the emergency operating theatre booking system, these include online cardiac risk calculators for predicting post-operative morbidity and mortality and an intranet-based multiple choice question program for assisting other anaesthetists in their continuing medical education needs. He is also on the audit subcommittee of the Vascular Anaesthesia Society of Great Britain & Ireland and has set up a national audit database for patients undergoing abdominal aortic aneurysm surgery.
