Scotland County Hospital to go live with Healthland’s EMR system

One patient chart for the entire community

By CBR Staff Writer

Healthland, a provider of healthcare information services, has announced that Scotland County Hospital will go live with its electronic medical records system.

Healthland said its services provides one patient chart for the entire community, which means data from a hospital visit, clinic appointment, long-term care stay or home health call are all stored electronically with the information available to attending clinicians in real time, regardless of their location.

The company has also said that the outcome of these integrated applications is increased operational efficiencies, improved departmental and organizational communication, and reduced cost by managing patient records and optimizing reimbursement while ensuring regulatory compliance.

The hospital is currently implementing the entire suite of Healthland’s electronic medical record (EMR) software applications including: order communications, laboratory, radiology, pharmacy, clinical documentation, physician access, transcription and physician practice documentation, and physician practice management for clinical operations.

The Healthland system’s instant access to aggregated patient data is expected to help Scotland County Hospital improve patient care by eliminating illegible hand-written notes, which can reduce the risk of medical errors. In addition, Healthland’s EMR tools are expected to offer safety features including special alerts to patient allergies and increased checkpoints prior to the administration of all medication.
