Centreville, Alabama - Bibb Medical Center's newly renovated Emergency Room has undergone more than just a physical transformation.

Doctors and nurses at Bibb Medical Center are now using veEDIS™, an advanced emergency room management software that administers data and workflow and provides a more efficient, patient-friendly Emergency Department experience.

"For a small community hospital, we do things many others can't. We are progressive and always try to enhance our patients' experience and quality of care. veEDIS, will make us more efficient with improved documentation and patient safety."
"We are honored that Bibb Medical Center, based on an abundance of research, selected veEDIS for their emergency department software," said Thomas L. Grossjung, President and CEO of veEDIS Clinical Systems, LLC. "veEDIS was designed specifically for community hospitals like Bibb Medical Center where the patient experience is a top priority.
