Jennie Stuart Medical Center Implements ChartWise Medical Systems to Improve Clinical Documentation

WAKEFIELD, RI--(Marketwire - Aug 3, 2011) - ChartWise Medical Systems, Inc. (www.chartwisemed.com), an innovative clinical documentation improvement software company, today announced the considerable success of its implementation and partnership with Jennie Stuart Medical Center. The healthcare information management organization's ChartWise:CDI software has become an affordable, sustainable and effective clinical documentation program for the prominent medical center.

Jennie Stuart Medical Center began its extensive search for a CDI vendor in 2010 and while numerous traditional consultant-based models were evaluated, all required lengthy and expensive engagements. As a community hospital with roughly 200 beds and limited resources, this medical center needed a unique approach.

"Within the first 15 minutes of the ChartWise demo, we knew we were seeing something that could provide a solid foundation for our clinical documentation program," states Starla Stavely, RHIA and HIM Director at Jennie Stuart Medical Center.

ChartWise's new and innovative clinical documentation software establishes a proactive method for Jennie Stuart Medical Center to improve work efficiency, compliance, and the quality and completeness of their documentation. The focus of the ChartWise software is to provide an immediate solution to clinical documentation specialists, case managers, quality teams and caregivers, by assisting in improving documentation via a clinically intelligent and easy-to-use web-based tool.

"ChartWise is a complete departure from traditional CDI programs," declared Stavely. "Our facility is no longer dependent on long term, cumbersome and expensive consulting engagements to obtain improved documentation."
