MIE Shares Story of Improving Uninsured Patient Outcomes with EMR

February 15, 2008 - Medical Informatics Engineering (MIE) will display its Safety Net Health Electronic Medical Record system at HIMSS 2008, and will explain how it improved care for the uninsured in Allen County, IN, by connecting clinics, hospitals, emergency departments and the local Health Department.

MIE configured a custom EMR for each community organization, tailored to its unique specifications. The system allows physicians to call up the patient chart, plus lab reports and radiographic images.

Since more than half of the 37,000 uninsured in Allen County visit multiple locations when seeking care, the systems automatically share real-time data with a centralized repository. The interoperable, linked EMR system has reduced wait times, eliminated duplicate lab orders, decreased the risk of contraindicated prescriptions, and reduced overall administrative.

The company says nearly 50 percent of uninsured adults with chronic conditions forgo medical care for an extended period of time. With the MIE Safety Net Health EMR system in place, clinics and hospitals can more readily track progress and changes over time for chronic patients.

Users of the Safety Net Health EMR from MIE found it frees physicians, nurses and other medical staff from clerical functions to focus on patient care, the company said.

MIE Executive Vice President Peter Norder will discuss interoperable EMRs and the use of Safety Net Health in Allen County at HIMSS at 9:45 a.m., Wednesday, Feb. 27 in room 208 A-C of the Orange County Convention Center.
