A 96-bed community hospital located in Toccoa, Georgia, Stephens County Hospital cares for approximately 19,700 emergency department patients annually. With Wellsoft EDIS, the hospital will replace its mostly manual Emergency Department processes and integrate with its current CPSI hospital information system.

“We evaluated several ED information systems and knew we wanted to implement a Best-of-Breed solution,” said Dr. Edwin Leap, Medical Director of Stephens County Hospital. “After narrowing down our choices and interviewing current and past clients, Wellsoft was the clear winner. Everyone we interviewed loved it. The ease of use of the system, the variety of usable and intuitive features, and the ability for it to help from a billing perspective were also contributing factors. We look forward to implementing it and furthering our mission of providing highly efficient and outstanding care to our community.”

Implementation planning is underway for a complete suite of features including patient tracking, clinical documentation, CPOE, results reporting, and charge capture. Through the utilization of Wellsoft EDIS, Stephens County Hospital expects to improve workflow and throughput of patients through streamlined physician and nursing documentation; improve communication and reduce errors with real-time chart availability; and ensure appropriate billing through charge capture.

Dr. John Santmann, President of Wellsoft Corporation, commented, “The increase in Emergency Department visits nationwide is prompting hospitals like Stephens County to re-evaluate their current healthcare IT partners and operational strategies. As a result, we are seeing an increase in forward-thinking hospitals looking to implement an EDIS to optimize their emergency department efficiency and enhance patient care. Wellsoft is excited to be part of the work that Stephens County is doing for its patients.”

How Wellsoft meets the needs of clinicians, IT and hospital administration, is reflected in user commentary collected by KLAS:

I think Wellsoft EDIS' tracking board is really appealing to look at. The system is easy to use. If providers know how to use the internet, that is all the computer savviness that they need to use this system. I love the auto-save feature because I can't remember any instance where I lost what I wrote down. ~ Director/Physician January 2017

Wellsoft EDIS is still number one to me. Its speed and customization are fantastic. The track, speed, and customization of Wellsoft EDIS really differentiate the system from other products in my mind. ~ Manager/Analyst, January 2017

I couldn't be more pleased with Wellsoft's responsiveness. After sending an email, they respond within 24 hours with a possible solution for us to test. They are very responsive and intuitive.  ~ Executive, December 2016

Wellsoft EDIS really helps us meet meaningful use in multiple fashions. We just finished a C-CDA project with Wellsoft, so their system helps other people in the hospital meet their needs. ~ Manager/Analyst, December 2016

12 Apr 2011 Wellsoft EDIS ~ live at Kingston General & Hotel Dieu Hospitals

Wellsoft EDIS ~ live at Kingston General & Hotel Dieu Hospitals

12 Apr 2011

April 12, 2011

MEDIA RELEASE

New system tracks emergency patients in real time

The implementation of a new emergency department information system (EDIS) from Wellsoft Corporation now allows hospital staff to track all patient activity—in real time— across the emergency program at Hotel Dieu Hospital and Kingston General Hospital.

The EDIS is designed to track patients from their first encounter with a triage nurse until the time they are either discharged from the Urgent Care Centre at Hotel Dieu or the Emergency Department at KGH or admitted to an inpatient bed. The intent is to provide frontline care providers with immediate access to the information they need to track and treat patients more safely and effectively, and to assist with patient flow.

“By tracking patients, we’re now better able to follow their movement as they navigate though the health care system and measure the time it takes us to meet their needs,” says Emergency Program Medical Director Dr. Paul Dungey.

The EDIS works like an air traffic controller by allowing clinicians to electronically access a patient’s information from any location in the Urgent Care and Emergency departments.  It creates a timelier and more efficient electronic snapshot—on the spot—from work stations.

The EDIS is being implemented in three phases.

Phase One, launched in early March, focuses on the electronic patient track, which includes the reason for the visit, patient’s acuity level (how sick they are), status, consulting services, which diagnostic tests have been ordered and their subsequent results. The second phase, which will begin shortly, will allow for clinical documentation (physician and nursing notes) and the third will add computerized provider order entry.

Once all three phases come online Hotel Dieu and KGH will have one of the few fully functional emergency department information systems in Canada.

“At the end of all three phases we will provide an overall better performing emergency department that’s ready for patients when they need it,” says Dungey.

Because the Wellsoft system has been customized to suit the hospitals’ specific needs, the EDIS will also improve the efficiency of collecting data and assessing trends on wait times and other quarterly performance indicators.

It will also support the existing syndromic surveillance system that monitors changes and trends of certain illnesses such as respiratory and gastrointestinal illness to detect new or emerging infectious disease threats in the community.

“Wellsoft is proud to partner with Hotel Dieu and KGH to assist them in meeting their EDIS goals, streamlining emergency services workflow and positively impacting patient care," says Dr. John Santmann, President of Wellsoft Corporation.

The purchase and implementation of the EDIS was made possible with $1.4 million in funding from the South East Local Health Integration Network.

“We’re confident the EDIS will help significantly in providing patients with the right care when they need it most, and in improving overall emergency department efficiencies that will ultimately lead to shorter wait times,” says Paul Huras, CEO of the SE LHIN.
