MEDHOST EDIS Advances Patient Safety

MEDHOST will spotlight version 4.1 of its Emergency Department Information System (EDIS) at HIMSS 2008.

Designed with patient safety in mind, MEDHOST 4.1 integrates The Sullivan Group’s patented Patient Risk and Safety module and First DataBank’s OrderView Med Knowledge Base. With the addition of a reportedly powerful decision support functionality, point-of-care risk alerts and CPOE-ready drug content allows physicians to quickly, yet accurately order medication. MEDHOST 4.1 furthers patient safety initiatives by reducing risk and adverse drug events, according to
the company.
