ED Physicians Adopt Wellsoft and Speech Recognition Integration

Feb. 24, 2010

Somerset, NJ – February 23, 2010 – Wellsoft Corporation announced today that Memorial Hospital in York, Pennsylvania is successfully using Dragonâ Medical software from Nuance Communications, Inc. to navigate and dictate within Wellsoft EDIS.Wellsoft EDIS provides complete information management for the Emergency Department (ED) with the most comprehensive range of features and functionality for improving workflow and increasing patient satisfaction. In addition to integration with Dragon Medical, Wellsoft EDIS seamlessly integrates with HL7 compliant hospital wide and departmental systems such as laboratory, radiology, and hospital billing systems. Wellsoft’s integration capabilities combined with its core functions of patient tracking, clinical documentation, order entry and medication management will promote continuity of care by allowing all caregivers and staff throughout the facility authorized access to relevant information

Memorial Hospital in York, Pennsylvania, a 150-bed hospital serving over 40,000 ED patients each year, enhanced their Wellsoft EDIS implementation recently with Wellsoft Physician Documentation and Dragon Medical 10.  This replaces costly dictation. Immediate benefits included a significant reduction in the time spent documenting care – before many doctors spent multiple hours after shift, dictating patient information, now, all documentation is completed in real time – no more extra hours spent.

Dr. Greg Smolin, Medical Director at Memorial said, “The ability to add documentation in real time is not only a time saver, but enhances communication and accuracy about each patient’s condition among providers while the patient is in the ED, rather than after discharge. Dragon Medical 10, in conjunction with Wellsoft physician documentation templates, gives us the tools to efficiently add detailed physician notes to the medical record and enhances the HPI and medical decision making content of our documentation. The extremely functional interface of Wellsoft and Dragon is an excellent solution to our EMR needs.”
