“Clay County Hospital’s move in November to veEDIS for the Emergency Department is a part of its commitment to continuous improvement of patient care that is provided to the communities,” says Linda U. Jordan, Administrator.

Just prior to the New Year, veEDIS Clinical Systems, LLC successfully implemented its EHR, Emergency Department Information System (EDIS), in Clay County Hospital, located in Ashland, Alabama. Utilized by nurses and physicians to document patient care, veEDIS is a key ingredient in modernizing technology and patient record-keeping, as well as the authorized, confidential exchange of patient information at this facility. Through the veEDIS technology, designed in accordance with clinical workflows and best practices, veEDIS facilitates improved documentation, risk mitigation, and overall improvement in patient outcomes. Additionally, the veEDIS EMR software is compliant and has been certified by an ONC-ACB in accordance with the applicable certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and will assist the hospital towards its own Meaningful Use requirements.

veEDIS may be deployed locally or in the “cloud” and is a content-complete EHR system. These features, coupled with talented clinicians and support staff, enable client hospitals to experience hassle-free, efficient implementations, completing the training and go-live process in less than thirty (30) days. In addition, through the CareTRAK module, veEDIS offers the most “intelligent” clinical surveillance, decision support, and risk mitigation tool on the market. Furthermore, CareTRAK monitors, tracks, and provides clinicians with real-time feedback to ensure the requisite Clinical Quality Measures are being met at the point of care, making it the only tool of its kind, marrying CDS and CQM’s, (real-time and at the point of care).

“Clay County Hospital’s move in November to veEDIS for the Emergency Department is a part of its commitment to continuous improvement of patient care that is provided to the communities,” says Linda U. Jordan, Administrator. “Patients may notice ER physicians and ER nurses using a state-of-the-art electronic medical record to document the treatment and care provided in the Emergency Department. It is the goal of our ER to treat patients as quickly as possible, given the fact that more serious conditions are given priority. The veEDIS system, created by ER physicians and nurses, allows our ER staff to document patient care more effectively and efficiently. Other hospitals in Alabama and across the nation have found veEDIS to be adaptable to their current methods of patient care and have benefited from using a software system that is more clinical rich than many other systems found in larger facilities. Clay County Hospital is proud to have a business relationship with veEDIS.”

“We look forward to demonstrating the veEDIS difference and the positive impact it will have on patient care for the community of Ashland,” said Executive Vice President, Amy L. Crawford. “Our talented team of professionals is working alongside the Hospital’s clinical team to optimize program utilization. In the short time since implementation, we are already seeing improved documentation, enabling the Hospital’s to achieve an immediate return on investment. We are proud to partner with Clay County Hospital in providing the very best in emergency care.”

Clay County Hospital, a general medical/surgical acute care hospital with 53 licensed beds, serves Clay County and the surrounding areas. With annual ER visits of 5400, inpatient admissions of 1300, and outpatient visits of 15,600, Clay County Hospital provides an array of inpatient, outpatient and support services, and is actively involved in a variety of community health related activities.
