PatientKeeper to Showcase Hospitals that Benefit from its Physician Workflow Overlay at HIMSS12 Healthcare Technology Conference
PatientKeeper gives hospitals the option to avoid ripping-and-replacing their existing HIS systems and instead “overlaying” them with physician-friendly CPOE, medication reconciliation, documentation and charge capture applications that their physicians will love
WALTHAM, MA & LAS VEGAS, NV – Feb. 20, 2012 – At the HIMSS12 conference, PatientKeeper®, Inc., the leading provider of physician healthcare information systems, will showcase its physician-friendly overlay that sits on top of all hospital back-end systems. PatientKeeper provides a single, integrated software environment that over 40,000 physicians have voluntarily adopted to help manage their daily patient care activities.
Executives from five PatientKeeper customers – Ashe Memorial Hospital, Community Memorial Health System, Madison Memorial Hospital, Mercy Medical Center, and Southeast Alabama Medical Center – will participate in a panel discussion at a PatientKeeper-sponsored HIMSS12 “lunch and learn” session on Wednesday, Feb. 22. Panelists will describe their experiences using an overlay strategy to deploy advanced clinical applications that extend the value and physician appeal of their existing hospital information systems to improve patient care, save physicians time, and attain Stage 2/3 Meaningful Use.
“We are excited that our customers are eager to share their experiences with an audience of their peers,” said PatientKeeper president and CEO Paul Brient. “They have compelling stories to tell about successful physician adoption of IT within their organizations, and the patient care and operational benefits they realize using PatientKeeper.”
Some of these customers also will be available for conversations at PatientKeeper’s main HIMSS12 exhibit (booth #1045), where PatientKeeper will highlight its physician-friendly CPOE, medication reconciliation, physician documentation, and charge capture applications.
PatientKeeper’s workflow automation solutions work in conjunction with existing hospital IT infrastructure; as a result, hospitals don’t have to rip and replace their current systems to meet the needs of physicians.
“PatientKeeper’s revolutionary overlay strategy has provides an attractive option to hospital executives who previously believed their only choice to encourage physician adoption of technology was to go to the time and expense of replacing their existing HIS,” Brient said. “Now, with PatientKeeper, hospitals have the option of deploying PatientKeeper’s CPOE, medication reconciliation and documentation software on top of existing IT infrastructure, creating an environment that satisfies physicians and other clinical staff, as well as hospital IT and administrative staff.”
