one call admissions?

How are patients admitted from outlying facilities to your ER? Does your hospital use a one call admissions, charge nurse or one of the online systems like admit bed ? Do any of them work better than others in your opinion?

By "outlying facilities", do you mean LTCs or other EDs?

Acute transfers from other ED. It seems when I am getting a transfer I either get a reams of paper or a post it note with scribbles on it. I was just trying to figure out if there is a system that provides better continuity of care.
