Implementing ECDS v3 before the next release of the ECDS ETOS
We would like to thank you for your efforts to implement ECDS v3. We recognise the challenges in doing this and appreciate your commitment to getting this right. Thank you.
Please be aware that implementation of ECDS v3, especially the important new fields to record Clinically Ready to Proceed, NEWS2 and the Clinical Frailty Scale can be implemented without the need for the new ECDS ETOS, now expected for publication in Summer 2021 (We will notify you once we have confirmation of the publication date).
Any SNOMED codes specifically associated with ECDS v3 were published in September 2020 and these will not change in the Summer 2021 update to the ETOS.
If you are unsure how to implement ECDS v3 before the next release of the ETOS please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
