Latest Content Release for The T SystemEV EDIS Supports Clinicians in Providing Quality Care for H1N1 Patients
Date:10/8/2009

BALTIMORE, Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- BALTIMORE CONVENTION CENTER / BOOTH #616 - T-System, Inc., the nation's leading provider of emergency department (ED) clinical documentation solutions, today announced that its latest content update for its T SystemEV® electronic Emergency Department Information System (EDIS) incorporates the latest Centers for Disease Control (CDC) information to facilitate the diagnosis and treatment of H1N1, as well as the seasonal flu, for both adult and pediatric cases. The announcement was made at the 2009 Emergency Nurses Association Annual Conference in Baltimore, Maryland.

The new content updates for T SystemEV will assist healthcare providers in the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of patients presenting with potential H1N1 influenza symptoms, as well as seasonal flu. The update to content version 906 of the T SystemEV will include both modified upper respiratory templates for physicians and nurses that will make it easier to document flu cases and flu exposure, as well as new influenza-specific templates for doctors and nurses for both adult and pediatric flu cases.

"The new templates will help to streamline the documentation associated with history taking, examination, testing, diagnosis and treatment of suspected influenza conditions as we head into the peak of flu season," said Tom Ward, MD, Chief Medical Officer and Senior Vice President for T-System. "The new templates design will assist providers with their differential diagnosis and medical decision making for these flu-like symptom cases."

For facilities that have yet to upgrade to version 906 of the T SystemEV content, the new upper respiratory and influenza-specific content will be included in this version going forward. For facilities that have already upgraded to content version 906, the influenza content updates will be provided as part of an enhanced release.

T-System has been at the forefront of integrating H1N1 content guidelines from the CDC into its T-Sheets(®) paper templates product, providing free up-to-date templates to all healthcare providers even as the guidelines have changed daily. This integration into the T SystemEV EDIS will allow facilities that rely on electronic medical records systems to more effectively incorporate the H1N1 information into their streamlined patient record-keeping, computerized physician order entry (CPOE), prescription ordering and lab interface systems to further improve efficiency and quality of care.

"When H1N1 first hit, T-System responded by promptly providing tools and updated paper templates that our physicians began using right away," said Randy Pilgrim, MD, FACEP, President and Chief Medical Officer for The Schumacher Group, a leading emergency management firm. "Also, as H1N1 and seasonal flu cases escalate, the integration of the most current H1N1 information and guidelines into T SystemEV EDIS truly supports our physicians in delivering the highest quality patient care."

"The Schumacher Group has been working with T-System for over ten years now," added Dr. Pilgrim. "These timely updates demonstrate why they're such an important partner of ours as they continue to generate important solutions to our daily challenges for the practice of emergency medicine."

As expected, the numbers of H1N1 cases have been rising in recent weeks, with mounting cases of season flu expected in the coming months. According to Dr. Ward, it is important for facilities to be prepared for the influx of cases of both H1N1 and seasonal flu.

"Although the severity of H1N1 is not what we initially expected, H1N1 has been spreading rapidly and with sometimes unexpected severity," said Dr. Ward. "As we await general availability of the H1N1 vaccine, medical facilities can expect to see increasing numbers of cases. With our new content updates, we're helping clinicians to better manage these cases."

T-System will demonstrate the new H1N1 content during the 2009 Emergency Nurses Association Conference from its exhibit at Booth #616 in the Baltimore Convention Center.
