|Somerset, NJ –- Wellsoft Corporation today announced that Huntsville Hospital has selected its Emergency Department Information System to ensure efficient patient throughput, improve clinical coordination, and promote increased patient satisfaction. Huntsville Hospital and Wellsoft will complete this installation in advance of a scheduled fall 2007 expansion of the Emergency Department, which serves as the regional trauma center.
Huntsville Hospital considered multiple EDIS vendors. After evaluating the product from both a clinical and technical viewpoint, along with site visits, Wellsoft emerged as the leader. The EDIS Steering Committee unanimously agreed that Wellsoft would streamline the Emergency Department’s workflow, ensure efficient patient throughput, improve physician and nurse job satisfaction and facilitate migration to an electronic medical record.
“It has long been the vision for Huntsville Hospital’s Emergency Department to implement an integrated Emergency Department Information System that provides the tools for greater efficiencies throughout the Emergency Department. Being the busiest ED (120,000 visits/year) in the state of Alabama, Huntsville Hospital has its challenges and with challenges, come opportunities. Such opportunities that an integrated Emergency Department Information System such as Wellsoft provides are workflow enhancement, reduction of paper, improved compliance and a better overall work environment. Clinicians will benefit from reduction of verbal orders, legible documentation, enhanced communication between caregivers, and elimination of redundant documentation. It is Huntsville Hospital’s vision to be the best hospital in the state of Alabama and nationally recognized for excellence. Utilizing Wellsoft as a tool puts us one step closer to achieving that goal.”

The Wellsoft EDIS will be an excellent addition to their state of the art facilities. We look forward to working with the staff at Huntsville to help them do what they do, even better.”
