Blue Island, IL, March 21, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Metro South Medical Center in Blue Island, Illinois, has advanced the technological state of its facility even further with the installation of empowerHospital+Office, the cutting-edge EHR with a broad reach that is hospital-wide and physicians’ offices. The successful partnership of empowersystems and MSMC began in early 2008 with the installation of empowerED, the JCAHO-acclaimed EDIS, and continues its evolution into the new decade.
Serving its community since 1905, MSMC, a 410-bed facility, is one of a growing number of U.S. hospitals that continue to embrace technology to deliver more expedient patient care. As a regional innovator, MSMC continues paving the way for other Midwest hospitals to follow suit. empowersystems is proud of this expanded partnership and looks forward to helping Metro South Medical Center to further pursue its commitment to both its patients and the community at large. MSMC’s choice to be proactive with Obama administration healthcare IT incentives assures they will retain their strategic position among the innovative, technology-embracing facilities in Illinois, the Midwest, and the US.
Building upon the proven success of empowerED, the empowersystems product suite has grown from the ED to address the needs of all hospital units and doctors’ offices. Touted as the ‘Software Built By Doctors For Doctors,’ empowerHospital+Office enters the market from a strategic standpoint in a rapidly changing healthcare landscape. By offering a unique clinical, business & technical perspective, hospitals are able to install the system with no up-front costs and doctors’ offices are integrated for free, thus synchronizing both elements of the hospital environment into a single, integrated system that interacts seamlessly with existing core hospital information systems. Combine this with the full integration of Laboratory, Radiology, Pharmacy, Consultant Software systems, etc. and the benefits are resounding.
While there are many competitors in the marketplace, empower has distanced itself from the field to become the only EHR vendor with 100% user-acceptance, with all physicians and nurses documenting on empower from Day One. With only 6 buttons to learn and less than one hour of training time, empower users are able to take full advantage of the benefits immediately. All clinical and ancillary notes are stored in one location, removing the need for clinicians to search 500-page charts for only two pages of important notes By automatically importing social, family, and past medical histories of each patient, empowerHospital+Office ensures appropriate real-time communication between clinicians and departments, thus greatly improving patient safety and doctor satisfaction.
By centralizing information in structured fields, empowerHospital+Office is an exciting tool not only for clinicians, but for hospital administration and information technology departments. This data mining ability offers limitless possibilities for Operational Performance Index, Quality Assurance reporting, and beyond.
As the healthcare landscape becomes increasingly shaped by the federal government’s ambitious initiatives, empowersystems continues to leverage visionary technology and to assist MSMC and its client base to meet or exceed new guidelines and take full advantage of economic stimulus incentives as the deadline draws near. The mandate of paperless health records is not only possible, but quickly attainable hospital-wide, within a single month of implementation of empowerHospital+Office.
