Albert Einstein Healthcare Network Implements ED Information System From Patient Care Technology Systems
Patient Care Technology Systems (PCTS) today announced that Albert Einstein Healthcare Network (AEHN) has successfully implemented the Amelior ED™ documentation system at their Germantown Community Health Services and Einstein at Elkins Park emergency departments located in the greater Philadelphia market. The computer-based system provides integrated patient tracking, nurse and physician charting, computerized provider order entry, clinical decision support and patient disposition management.
The Amelior ED system was installed at both facilities earlier in 2007 as part of a network-wide commitment by AEHN to an emergency department electronic medical record. The Amelior ED system was interfaced with Einstein’s ADT, laboratory, radiology, EKG, and clinical data repository. Albert Einstein Medical Center, a level 1 trauma center that treats over 70,000 patient visits annually, will be integrating the software with its existing automatic patient and asset tracking software from PCTS later this year.
“We are pleased to have introduced an electronic medical record into our emergency departments,” said Carl Chudnofsky MD FACEP, chairman of the department of emergency medicine at AEHN. “The Amelior ED system provides comprehensive information management to enhance communications between caregivers and to streamline patient care management. With an electronic medical record, we are able to quickly access and share critical patient information that originates in any of our emergency departments.”
The Amelior ED system is part of the Amelior suite of intelligent workflow automation solutions from PCTS which include department-specific and enterprise-wide automatic patient and asset tracking systems.
