Houston, TX (PRWEB) April 02, 2014
Houston Methodist Hospital, the largest transplant center in Texas, hosted the sixth annual TeleResults User Conference on March 27 and 28. Dr. Osama Gaber, Director of Transplantation at Methodist J.C. Walter Jr. Transplant Center in Houston, opened the session and stressed that the value of the transplant application is in tracking patient status during the various phases of transplant and for outcome studies.
The annual TeleResults User Conference has become an anticipated event where professionals in the transplantation and organ disease management fields, including clinicians, coordinators and technology experts, can gather to assess solutions to the complicated and ever-changing world of organ transplant and disease management. The focus of this year’s conference was on introducing product enhancements to the TeleResults Presidio EMR system and on facilitating best practices among transplant and organ disease management centers. TeleResults was also able to present new and innovative solutions to enhance the functioning of these clinics.
“We are happy to host this year’s conference and showcase how we are able to use Presidio in our large transplant center. Presidio has impacted our operations to make them more efficient. The collaboration among different transplant centers at the User Conference to identify best practices in using Presidio is very beneficial as well,” said Susan Zylicz, Transplant Administrator Houston Methodist Hospital.
Presidio is the latest TeleResults application and is the premier organ disease and transplant management information system. It is designed to enhance patient care while helping medical centers increase efficiency and meet regulatory compliance. During the User Conference, TeleResults revealed enhancements and new features to its Presidio application. New features included the new Intake Module, Roadmap feature, Online Living Donor Portal, Physician Order screen, E-Prescribe and Accounting features. Also, TeleResults announced improvements to its Clinician Mode, Task Module, Patient Communication, Presentation Reports, Insurance, Scheduling feature, Medication screen, HLA and DSA with MFI scores, Flow-sheet, Encounters, Daily Log and Notification Center.
Houston Methodist Hospital introduced the Intake Module, which was successfully developed for its transplant center by TeleResults to aggregate and streamline the intake process. This module enhances the overall intake experience for both patients and providers and was very warmly received by conference participants.
“The Intake Module is an excellent addition to Presidio and I can’t wait to have it at Hopkins,” said Scott Anderson, System Development Manager at The John Hopkins Hospital.
“We are very excited about the Intake Module and Clinician Mode, which both have easier data entry screens. They provide the opportunity to implement greater efficiencies that we’ve not had,” said Jennifer Peattie, Clinical Applications Manager, Baylor Scott & White Health Care System.
Sharing best practices is one of the keystones of the TeleResults User Conference and it facilitates a sense of camaraderie among participants from different centers. The Johns Hopkins Hospital was able to share their successes with spearheading Presidio’s Online Living Donor Portal. Thomas Jefferson University Hospital discussed their experience with migrating to the Presidio platform.
“It is very useful to hear the presentations of what works from other centers. The shear networking at the User Conference is extremely beneficial,” said Christine Reid, Transplant Data Analyst from the University of Maryland Medical Center’s Department of Transplant Surgery.
“We are currently implementing Presidio at our center. We can learn from others who have gone through a similar journey and challenges,” said Jennifer Peattie, Clinical Applications Manager, Baylor Scott & White Health Care System.
Many of the top transplant centers in the nation were represented at the conference including clinicians, transplant coordinators and IT experts, all of whom are TeleResults users. Nationwide, TeleResults systems manage over 20,000 wait list patients and over 62,000 transplanted patients.
