Emergisoft Releases the EC Forms Digital Solution

ARLINGTON, TX--(Marketwire - February 25, 2010) - Emergisoft is pleased to announce the release of Emergisoft EC Forms Digital Solution, a powerful application that provides physicians with a portable electronic, customizable, template-style physician documentation modality that converts the template choices and notes into a narrative natural language chart. The solution is designed specifically for physicians and is distinct from the hospital's EHR, allowing emergency physicians to document in a way that is most comfortable for them. Emergisoft developed this solution to meet the requirements of emergency physicians -- rapid, flexible, and simple-to-use electronic documentation.

Accessed via a simple, intuitive physician portal, physicians chart on familiar complaint-specific templates. The saved document is converted to a natural language chart, which is instantly available for viewing. Edits and updates to the preliminary chart are easily accomplished with the same interface. Once the chart is complete, it is instantly available for centralized chart review, coding and billing, and can be sent to the hospital's Electronic Medical Record, EDIS, or medical records. This solution meets the hospital's requirements for an electronic chart, and provides the physician group with a standard charting experience across multiple hospital clients.

With Emergisoft's EC Forms Digital Portal, physicians can retain fast, easy documentation, increase patient throughput, and increase revenue for the physicians and for the hospital.

As more hospitals implement Emergency Department Information Systems (EDIS) to obtain ARRA funds, emergency physicians will be required to move away from the consistency and familiarity of paper templates and dictation, and use the unfamiliar electronic charting tools adopted by the hospital. In effect, emergency physicians will lose control of the emergency physician charting experience -- the interface, the risk management tools, the quality of documentation, and the consistent output.

"I created the EC Forms Digital Portal to address these issues," Jordan Davis, CEO of Emergisoft, said. "I decided that emergency physician groups required an emergency physician electronic documentation solution of their own, allowing them to migrate their physicians to electronic charting on their own terms, control the user experience, maintain the risk management and documentation excellence, and standardize the output for coding and billing."

Emergisoft is showcasing the EC Forms Digital Solution, along with EmergisoftED, during HIMSS10 from its exhibit at booth 615 in the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.
