Vibra Healthcare Deploys PatientKeeper NoteWriter Physician Documentation Software
Physicians at Long Term Acute Care Hospital Network Embrace Accuracy and Efficiency of Electronic Notes
Waltham, Mass. – Mar. 26, 2013 – PatientKeeper® Inc., the leading provider of healthcare applications for physicians, today announced that Vibra Healthcare, LLC, one of the nation’s largest specialty healthcare providers, has completed the first phase of an enterprise-wide deployment of PatientKeeper NoteWriter™ electronic documentation software across its network of long term acute care hospitals.
Over 100 physicians are using NoteWriter at four Vibra hospitals in California and Ohio. Over the first four months of active usage, these physicians have produced more than 20,000 clinical notes using NoteWriter.
“PatientKeeper provides easy access and navigation to different elements in the health information system,” said Dr. Thiruvoipati Nanda Kumar, MD, at Vibra Hospital of Northern California in Redding, California. “This definitely elevates the process of progress note documentation by physicians to a higher level of efficiency and thoroughness.”
Vibra Healthcare, headquartered in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, is finding that PatientKeeper’s clinical and physician documentation software products enhance satisfaction among affiliated community physicians that practice at its facilities, some of whom already use PatientKeeper at other local hospitals where they practice.
“Our physicians are very excited because the electronic documentation workflow is consistent with the way they’re used to documenting care,” Marie Roof, Executive Vice President of Information Technology at Vibra Healthcare, said. “And PatientKeeper feeds directly into our EMR, creating a ‘closed loop’ system that pulls and pushes information to the core HIS systems to ensure that all patient data automatically becomes part of the medical record.”
In addition to NoteWriter, Vibra is deploying the PatientKeeper Physician Portal™ and PatientKeeper Mobile Clinical Results™, to provide physicians with “anytime, anywhere” access to patient information through desktop and laptop computers, smartphones and tablets.
PatientKeeper’s EHR optimization software solutions streamline clinician workflow, improve care team collaboration, and fill functional gaps in existing hospital EHR systems. With PatientKeeper as the “system of engagement” complementing the EHR, clinicians can easily access and act on all their patient information from PCs, smartphones and tablets. PatientKeeper has more than 70,000 active users today. For more information about PatientKeeper, visit www.patientkeeper.com or call (781) 373-6100.
