Share Article

The fifth annual TeleResults User Conference 2013 was successfully hosted at Johns Hopkins University Hospital on March 18 and 19 and hosted more than 40 participants from over 18 transplant centers from around the country. It was jointly held by Johns Hopkins University Hospital’s Comprehensive Transplant Center and TeleResults, an innovator in organ transplant and organ disease EMR solutions.

It is exciting to see all the new products TeleResults has created such as the Presidio VAD program. These products can really improve efficiency.

The yearly conference has become a forum where participants exchange ideas, look for solutions and present best-practices to the ever-present challenges of managing a complex transplantation center. TeleResults also presented its latest vision for the future and demonstrated recently developed enhancements and new beneficial features and applications.

“Johns Hopkins is proud to have hosted the annual TeleResults User Conference. This event brought together representatives from several hospitals across the country, resulting in a wonderful sharing of information about how to maximize technology in transplant programs. It has also been exciting to see all the new enhancements that TeleResults has built over the past year. We are excited to start using some of these new features!” Brigitte Sullivan, Administrative Director Comprehensive Transplant Center, Johns Hopkins University Hospital.

TeleResults revealed enhancements and new features to its Presidio application. Presidio, the latest TeleResults offering, is the premier organ disease and transplant management information system designed to enhance patient care while helping medical centers increase efficiency and meet regulatory compliance. Participants were excited and eager to upgrade to the new application. Presidio’s ease-of-use and simple report generation capabilities, utilizing Microsoft Word formats, were seen as huge incentives to entice physicians to more readily use the application.

TeleResults also generated a lot of excitement with the demonstration of its new disease management applications, Presidio VAD for ventricular assist device programs, Presidio HCC (Hepatocellular Carcinoma) for liver disease management, as well as other healthcare management products.

“It is exciting to see all the new products TeleResults has created such as the Presidio VAD program. These products can really improve efficiency.” Susan Zylicz, Transplant Administrator, The Methodist Hospital, Houston, TX.

“It was clear to me at the conclusion of the 2013 TeleResults Conference in Baltimore that TeleResults continues to place itself on the vanguard of not only transplant-specific software innovation, but also organ disease management in general.    In what has become an increasingly competitive arena, TeleResults continues to place itself in the trailblazer column while their nearest competitors seem to fight for each inch moving forward, still years away from realizing similar success.     There are some great EMR platforms out there these days, and it’s comforting to have so many great choices from which to choose, but when it comes to transplant, there remains only one viable option for the foreseeable future.” Raymond Cogan, Titus Analyst, UCSF, San Francisco, CA.

TeleResults’ new Living Donor Portal also garnered a lot of enthusiasm from participants. The portal allows donors to register online. Patients can complete a screening form, which then notifies the coordinator via e-mail. This form could be reviewed and the data easily transferred directly and securely to the Presidio database without the need for double entry.

One of the greatest benefits of the TeleResults User Conference is the sharing of best practices and the camaraderie created among participants. Several TeleResults partners were able to share their practices or experiences. Topics covered included bridging to lab systems, UNOS Connect Module, creating administrative reports, improving patient care through technology, transplant programs financial attributes, organ acquisition accounting and successfully implementing Presidio.

“The conference was very informative. It was great to work with all the other attendees, who were so willing to share their knowledge.” Kristine Dahl, Quality Coordinator, The Methodist Hospital, Houston, TX.

Many of the nations’ top transplant centers were represented at the conference including clinicians, transplant coordinators and IT experts, all of which are TeleResults users. Nationwide, TeleResults systems manage over 20,000 wait list patients and over 62,000 transplanted patients.
