Companies mentioned in this article: MEDHOST, Inc.

FRANKLIN, Tenn. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- MEDHOST, Inc., a provider of market-leading enterprise, departmental and healthcare engagement solutions, today announced that Estes Park Medical Center (EPMC) has implemented the MEDHOST Emergency Department Information System (EDIS) to help streamline workflows and overall ED processes while also helping to enhance care provided to the community of Estes Park, Colorado.

The 25-bed critical access hospital selected MEDHOST EDIS because it is clinically driven, developed specifically for the ED, and offers unique features such as onsite customization, built-in risk mitigation and ePrescribe capabilities. The solution’s intuitiveness and usability has already led to high clinician adoption, and as such, the facility expects more immediate enhancements to ED clinical and operational processes. The flexibility of the MEDHOST EDIS will also help EPMC better manage the influx of patients during the summer when the ED has its highest patient volumes.

“MEDHOST provided excellent guidance on solution and business best practices, which greatly prepared our entire ED staff to leverage the solution to its fullest potential and establish better clinical workflow and processes right from the start. This support, combined with the usability and flexibility of the solution, will play a key role in helping us continually create efficiencies and enhance the care we provide,” said Dr. Christopher Daley, emergency department physician at Estes Park Medical Center. “I am excited to see the continued benefits the MEDHOST EDIS will bring to the hospital, the ED staff and, most important, to our patients.”

EPMC’s clinicians worked closely with hospital leadership during the selection process and embraced the MEDHOST EDIS early on. In fact, every ED physician was fully engaged throughout implementation and training, which has contributed to the ED’s early success in streamlining workflow.

“Estes Park Medical Center’s entire ED team worked hand-in-hand with MEDHOST from implementation to training and beyond, which led to a smooth go live. The hospital’s involvement says a lot about its commitment to leveraging technology as part of its overall goal of providing the best care available,” said Craig Herrod, president of MEDHOST. “We are proud to partner with Estes Park Medical Center, and we look forward to continuing to align with their goals.”
