Memorial Hermann Baptist Beaumont Hospital upgrades to MEDHOST's full suite
MEDHOST’s powerful yet easy-to-use software suite will further elevate patient care and enhance Texas hospital’s administrative accountability
ADDISON, Texas – Jan. 23, 2007 – Since going live with MEDHOST’s patient tracking and nurse charting modules, Baptist Beaumont has benefited from the only true touch ED solution, and because of current success and acceptance by its clinicians, the hospital was eager to further automate the ED with additional software from MEDHOST. MEDHOST’s unique bedside order-entry solution will enable Baptist Beaumont’s physicians to quickly initiate care at the patient’s side or from anywhere in the ED, which will remove delays in care. The highly intuitive physician documentation module integrates with nurse charting to provide a complete patient chart without redundant data.MEDHOST, provider of the leading Emergency Department Information System (EDIS), today announced that Memorial Hermann Baptist Beaumont Hospital has upgraded to a full suite implementation by adding the company’s physician documentation and order entry software modules. Baptist Beaumont’s clinicians will now utilize more innovative technology to increase patient safety and decrease patient wait times.
"MEDHOST has dramatically improved the level of record-keeping in our ED," said Dr. Victor Ho, Medical Director of Memorial Hermann Baptist Hospitals. "The patient records I view are now more accurate, thorough and legible than the hand-written records we previously kept. Our ED clinicians also appreciate MEDHOST’s graphical interface, which makes the system easy to operate and facilitates quick and complete documentation."
"The best validation MEDHOST can receive is when visionary hospitals like Baptist Beaumont Hospital adopt our full-suite of services after having significant success with other MEDHOST modules," said Craig Herrod, CEO of MEDHOST. "Hospitals choose MEDHOST not only because our powerful solutions are simple to use, but because MEDHOST implementation and support teams include emergency clinicians who know first-hand what caregivers need to make their jobs more efficient and productive while staying squarely focused on providing the best patient care possible."

MEDHOST is the preferred EDIS provider of VHA Inc., a national cooperative serving more than 2,400 not-for-profit healthcare organizations.
