Latest Version of Industry's Most Popular Emergency Department Information System Also Includes Embedded Web Browser, Prescription Drug Screening
Upgrades and More
DALLAS, Oct. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- T-System, Inc., the leading provider of clinical documentation and information solutions in emergency departments and urgent care centers, today announced the release of The T SystemEV(R) 2.6.3, the newest upgrade to its industry-leading Emergency Department Information System (EDIS).
T SystemEV Version 2.6.3 offers several new capabilities and enhancements to existing features that improve clinical efficiency and quality of care. Highlights include:
-- Outbound Medication/Allergy Information. Using the HL7 interface, Version 2.6.3 allows authorized departments outside the ED to access a patient's present medications and allergies prior to discharge, before all documents are locked and signed. The new feature also enables hospital pharmacies to access medication and allergy data before filling prescriptions and allows med/allergy data to be transferred if a patient is admitted before all documentation is finished. Hospitals can also keep a copy of the information in the permanent medical record.
-- Automated Charge Capture. Version 2.6.3 automates the process of
translating nurse and physician documentation to CPT codes as the
documentation is being entered. This reduces or eliminates missed or
incorrect charges, improves facility reimbursement ratios and reduces the
risk of inaccurate billing. It also alerts clinical staff to deficiencies
before the charting process is complete, prompting them to add necessary
documentation to produce CPT codes. "T-System believes that charge capture
should occur as a natural, seamless part of the clinical documentation
process, rather than a distraction to physicians and nurses. In T SystemEV,
charge capture takes place unobtrusively, behind the scenes," said Mike
