D&E Medical Center eThomas Training Steven P. Monato CMGT410 March 30, 2013 Arthur Ward D&E Medical Center eThomas Training D&E Medical Center will be implementing a new Electronic Medical Record keeping system. This system will be an upgrade from their current software in place, dThomas. The eThomas system integrates all the familiar features found in the dThomas system, but expounds on the functionality of the software by implementing a Graphical User Interface. The goals of upgrading the current system, dThomas, are as follows: • Increase in Patient visits • Accurate Financial reporting • Ability to digitally duplicate eprescriptions • Decrease in scheduling conflicts Management at D&E Medical Center has conferred with Genius
Using IT to Manage EHRs (Electronic Health Records) in Military X Environment Charles Rose Keller Graduate School of Management MIS 535 Dr. Flores September 19, 2013 Subject/Thesis I propose the implementation of a series of medical informatics software to manage health care files throughout the Department of Defense healthcare systems. It is an opportunity to participate in a project that will bring considerable efficiencies to many thousands of healthcare providers and their patients. Business Problem Statement The business problem to be solved is how to improve day to day operational efficiencies. Currently paper records are still being used in over 50 % of the military hospitals across the nation. The benefits of

Overview of Meaningful Use Managing and documenting through health information technology (HIT) and electronic hospital records (EHRs) allow improvement in the quality of care that we provide each patient. The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) devoted millions of dollars and formed financial incentives as part of their support for adapting EHRs and the meaningful use of EHRs. There are two concepts that are used when trying to define meaningful use. “The concept of meaningful use rested on the '5 pillars' of health outcomes policy priorities, namely: 1) improving quality, safety, efficiency, and reducing health disparities, 2) engage patients and families in their health, 3) improve care coordination, 4) improve public health and population, and 5) ensure adequate privacy and security protection for personal health information” (Meaningful Use, 2012, para 2). “Ultimately, it is hoped that the meaningful use compliance will result in: better clinical outcomes, improved population health outcomes, increased transparency and efficiency, empowered individuals, and more robust research data on health systems” (Meaningful Use Definition, n.d., para 1).
Department Organization- The HIM department at Providence Holy Cross has a total of 34 employees which include 4 RHIT’s, 2 RHIA’s, 4 outpatient medical coders per-diem, 6 inpatient medical coders, and 2 clinical data specialist. The CDS is the liaison between clinical and physician record their role is to improve the physician documentation for accurate coding. The HIM department uses the terminal digit filing system, each patient receives a unique unit record number that follows them each patient visit adds to that record. The chart format is tabular charting the unit record is sorted by intervention. Chart tracking for the paper record is tracked by color coded index tabs.
The facility uses a design called a procedural platform that places emergent response departments, including emergency, trauma, operating, surgical, and imaging units in close proximity to each other, which improves teamwork, cohesiveness, communication, and speed of access (McConnell, 2008). Patients rooms are 30 percent larger and nursing stations are closer to the patient’s rooms. The facility offers flat-screen T.V.’s, internet access, and family kitchens to make the hospital more comfortable for patients (Lourdes Health Systems, 2008). The 36,000 square feet medical clinic uses medical equipment that integrates with electronic charting, automated alert communication of critical patient’s vitals, and managed systems for pharmaceuticals and other medical supplies at the patient’s bedside (McConnell, 2008). Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center has invested in 28.5 million in technology that supports the expanded medical records system (McConnell, 2008).

Results reporting, Data repository, Decision reporting, clinical documentation and order reporting are the other components of EHR. There are numerous benefits in implementing the EHR system. James Silcone in the article Eye on EHR writes that since his group practice has transitions from paper 5 years ago to reduce the inefficiencies of paper record, he has seen a profound impact on patient care. He states that he now has 24/7 access to patient critical patient information, with the help EHR if one his patients run out of medication he can now check labs and other critical information needed to reorder the medication. Before EHR he would have to wait one to two days for the results of lab work.
