Summit DRS 4.3 Delivers Enhanced Auditing

Summit Healthcare, an industry leader in healthcare system integration and automation solutions, has released the latest version of the Summit Downtime Reporting System (DRS). Summit DRS 4.3 will continue to be the downtime technology selection for hospitals to support their hospital EHR, ancillary systems or network during downtime situations.

The Summit Downtime Reporting System offers a sophisticated, streamlined solution that provides immediate access to critical data during downtime whether scheduled or unscheduled. Hospital organizations continue to adopt the Summit DRS technology at a rapid pace to ensure they are prepared for any situation that may arise. Patient safety continues to be of utmost importance. Ensuring all staff, from clinicians to department managers and leadership, can quickly and securely access data during downtime can no longer be an afterthought.

Security and auditing features are further enhanced in the latest version of the Summit Downtime Reporting System. Hospital organizations are faced with tighter restrictions and industry regulations tied to protecting electronic patient health data, as outlined in the HIPAA Omnibus Final Rule. For example, the robust auditing features in Summit DRS will now include patient level detail such as account number and medical record number. This allows tracking by hospital quality and control departments to be quick and efficient.

Printing of critical information such as the Medication Administration Report (MAR) often occurs during downtime situations. The ability to identify original versus printed copies is now available including which user printed the patient information. This additional level of auditing will provide added security during the situations when organizations make use to the Summit DRS during downtime.

"The release of the Summit Downtime Reporting System version 4.3 was a direct result of working closely with our trusted client base, listening to their needs, while paying close attention to the driving industry regulations they continuously face. Any downtime situation can be disruptive to hospital organizations affecting the staff and patients in multiple ways. Having a robust technology like Summit Downtime Reporting System in the background can allow clinical and IT leadership assurance that they are prepared during any type of downtime situation," said Paul Actis, CTO, Summit Healthcare.
