veEDIS Introduced at Sabine Medical CenterDate: June 22, 2012
Many, Louisiana - Sabine Medical Center is undergoing more than an exterior transformation. They have installed state-of-the-art technology which will result in a completely electronic Emergency Department. The doctors and nurses at Sabine Medical Center are now using veEDIS™, an advanced emergency room management software that manages data and workflow and provides a more efficient, patient-friendly Emergency Department experience.
"The move to veEDIS plays a key role in our hospital's ongoing commitment to enhance the quality of individual patient care at Sabine Medical Center," stated Dr. Charles Pearson, Medical Director of Emergency Department. "Benefits include our doctors and nurses getting up-to-the-minute information on patient status and location, and the ability to track test results quickly to provide an accurate diagnosis. Our patients are able to move through the emergency department faster."
"We are especially pleased that Sabine Medical Center, based on their research, selected veEDIS for their emergency department software," said Thomas L. Grossjung, President and CEO of veEDIS Clinical Systems. "veEDIS was designed specifically for community hospitals like Sabine Medical Center where the patient experience is a top priority. Our team of nurses and physicians who developed veEDIS has years of experience working in emergency departments. Their familiarity with the day-to-day challenges resulted in veEDIS simplifying emergency department management while at the same time providing the latest technology to assist in meeting quality patient care goals."
Rural hospitals have found veEDIS to be adaptable to their current methods of patient care, and benefit from using software that is more sophisticated than systems used by many large city hospitals. Using this advanced veEDIS technology, doctors and nurses at Sabine Medical Center will have quicker access to important medical information to save time in an environment where every second counts.
