Somerset, NJ – July 12, 2011 – Wellsoft Corporation today announced that implementation planning is underway for Wellsoft Emergency Department Information Systems (EDIS) at two additional hospitals in the Los Angeles County-run health care system. Expanding on the 2009 implementation of Wellsoft EDIS at Los Angeles County+USC Medical Center, the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services (DHS) has selected Wellsoft's EDIS for its Harbor-UCLA and Olive View-UCLA Medical Centers.

Harbor-UCLA Medical Center and Olive View-UCLA Medical Center annually manage care for 105,000 and 85,000 ED patients respectively.
