Our Hospital is struggling with the decision to select a Best in Class EDIS or use the ED module provided by our HIS provider. What would be the primary reasons for selecting an EDIS and EPOWERdoc over a HIS ED module?
Most HIS ED modules have their origins in clinical settings very different from the Emergency Department. Many HIS systems bring EMR products from either the inpatient floor or another outpatient setting into the Emergency Department and customize it to fit the ED. Typically, these systems lack the proper workflow and clinical content to provide a comprehensive EDIS. EPOWERdoc’s system is designed specifically to match the workflow of your Emergency Department. The speed and navigation tools within the system, along with our robust clinical content, make it a vast improvement over a HIS module.
