New Scott and White Hospital Deploys MEDHOST EDIS for Complete Physician Documentation

January 22, 2008 – MEDHOST said today the new Scott and White Hospital at University Medical Campus in Round Rock, TX, has automated its emergency department with MEDHOST’s full-suite, Emergency Department Information System (EDIS) software.

Scott and White chose MEDHOST because of the system’s intuitive design, ease of use, and customization and interfacing capabilities. The new hospital, which is fully integrated with Scott and White’s main Temple, TX, facility, is using MEDHOST to ensure quality patient care, complete documentation and efficient workflow.

The hospital’s physicians use extensive order sets and MEDHOST’s one touch bedside order entry removes unnecessary steps and accelerates prompt, efficient care.

“Our EDIS decision came down to how robust the physician documentation was, ease of use, and how well it would interface with our Siemens hospital information system (HIS). MEDHOST is so intuitive, simple and easy to understand, that no questions need to be asked – it simply guides you,” said Dr. Ross Tobleman, ED medical director at Scott and White/UMC. “MEDHOST’s EDIS ensures that we have a community-friendly ED that provides top notch and timely patient care.”

MEDHOST’s Administrative ToolKit provides the hospital with an easy and effective way to modify processes in real time, empowering the hospital to respond to clinical, financial, regulatory and technical changes instantly with no downtime.
