At Community Memorial Health System, 98 Percent of Orders and Notes Are Completed Electronically Using PatientKeeper
Southern California hospital delivers superior EHR user experience to physicians via PatientKeeper overlay on top of MEDITECH Client/Server hospital information system
Waltham, MA – Mar. 4, 2015 – PatientKeeper,® Inc., a leading provider of healthcare applications for physicians, today announced that 98 percent of all orders and physician notes are being entered electronically at its customer, Community Memorial Health System (CMHS) in Ventura County, California, as a result of widespread adoption of PatientKeeper CPOE™ and PatientKeeper NoteWriter™.
The success of PatientKeeper has given the hospital a competitive advantage in attracting physicians to practice there.
“Our physicians are delighted with the ease of use of the PatientKeeper applications,” Stanley Frochtzwajg, M.D., CMHS’s Chief Medical Officer, said. “They are able to see consults, orders and other documents immediately – and everything is legible. Just as important, our nurses and pharmacists are thrilled to have instant access to these items.”
For some physicians who also practice at other nearby hospitals, the contrast between CMHS’s PatientKeeper system and the EHR they use elsewhere is especially stark. “I’ve had physicians seek me out specifically to tell me how much they prefer our EHR,” Dr. Frochtzwajg said. “Most doctors can get up and running on PatientKeeper in 30 minutes.”
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.
