Wellsoft EDIS Selected by Stephens County Hospital

After narrowing down our choices and interviewing current and past clients, Wellsoft was the clear winner.

Wellsoft Corporation, an industry-leading Emergency Department Information System (EDIS) provider, announced today an agreement with Stephens County Hospital to deploy Wellsoft EDIS in the hospital’s Emergency Department to further enhance its operational efficiencies and provide high quality care for their patients.

A 96-bed community hospital located in Toccoa, Georgia, Stephens County Hospital cares for approximately 19,700 emergency department patients annually. With Wellsoft EDIS, the hospital will replace its mostly manual Emergency Department processes and integrate with its current CPSI hospital information system.

“We evaluated several ED information systems and knew we wanted to implement a Best-of-Breed solution,” said Dr. Edwin Leap, Medical Director of Stephens County Hospital. “After narrowing down our choices and interviewing current and past clients, Wellsoft was the clear winner. Everyone we interviewed loved it. The ease of use of the system, the variety of usable and intuitive features, and the ability for it to help from a billing perspective were also contributing factors. We look forward to implementing it and furthering our mission of providing highly efficient and outstanding care to our community.”

Implementation planning is underway for a complete suite of features including patient tracking, clinical documentation, CPOE, results reporting, and charge capture. Through the utilization of Wellsoft EDIS, Stephens County Hospital expects to improve workflow and throughput of patients through streamlined physician and nursing documentation; improve communication and reduce errors with real-time chart availability; and ensure appropriate billing through charge capture.

Dr. John Santmann, President of Wellsoft Corporation, commented, “The increase in Emergency Department visits nationwide is prompting hospitals like Stephens County to re-evaluate their current healthcare IT partners and operational strategies. As a result, we are seeing an increase in forward-thinking hospitals looking to implement an EDIS to optimize their emergency department efficiency and enhance patient care. Wellsoft is excited to be part of the work that Stephens County is doing for its patients.”
