These notes cover known issues and bugs with the EMERSE system. Some, but not all, of these may be fixed in future releases.

Comment and Tags for Shared Patient Lists

If two EMERSE users are working simultaneously with the same patient from a common shared patient list, it is possible that one user’s Comment or Tag could over-write the other user’s Comment or Tag. Whoever edits the Comment/Tag most recently will have their Comment/Tag saved, and the prior one would be lost. There is currently no way for a user to know if another user is working on the same patient from the same shared patient list.

Internet Explorer Compatibility Mode

The Internet Explorer (IE) browser has a 'Compatibility Mode' that allows it to work with older web-based applications, like some older clinical applications. EMERSE, however, works best with modern web browser functionality and aspects of EMERSE may be rendered non-functional when IE is set to use 'Compatibility Mode'. There are no plans to remedy this issue since newer versions of IE are more standards-compliant and the need for a browser to support a 'Compatibility Mode' are expected to decrease over time.
