SNCH uses Forerun’s ED software to improve care delivery processes

Patients to get the benefit as the software claims to cut waiting time

By CBR Staff Writer

InterSystems and Forerun have announced that South Nassau Communities Hospital is using Forerun’s Emergency Department or ED software to improve care delivery processes, while cutting wait time in a hospital’s ED.

The Forerun ED application runs on the InterSystems Ensemble integration and development platform. Ensemble is a high-performance software platform and advanced messaging engine that is used to develop and integrate mission-critical applications, leverage previous software investments through composite applications, and establish an enterprise service bus or SOA infrastructure. Ensemble-based projects are deployed in healthcare, commercial and government organizations to solve many demanding HL7 integration problems.

InterSystems said that Forerun chose Ensemble as the Forerun ED platform in order to enable integration with hospital-wide applications such as diagnostics, registration, and laboratory systems that provide critical information to ED clinicians.

Using Ensemble’s integration and development environment, Forerun technologists built the necessary HL7 message interfaces needed to integrate all relevant South Nassau Communities Hospital (SNCH) applications and data repositories

Gary Greenwald, ED chief of SNCH, said: ED is a software tool that provides clinicians with the information they need to identify delays in real time. With this data, you can find out how long patients are waiting and where processes are being held up. Those processes can then be optimized to cut wait time as much as possible.

Forerun, an InterSystems application partner, provides integrated clinical support systems, tools, services and devices that enable the clinical team to deliver high quality outcomes.
