Emergency Department Systems 2008

July 2, 2008

Hospital executives now recognize that ED automation is almost essential for today’s healthcare environment. ED automation helps solve many of the problems that ED environments face today including increased patient volumes, clinician shortages, and compliance with patient safety standards.

As hospitals realize the effectiveness of ED automated solutions to fill many of their pressing needs, adoption rates as well as individual site usage have steadily increased and will continue to do so.

The ongoing debate regarding feature/function versus enterprise/integration continues. However, improved interfacing among standalone vendors has given them more opportunities to win contracts, and compelled providers to look more thoroughly at features and functions than they may have previously.

Best-of-breed EDIS vendors generally deliver more robust functionality, are easier to use, and are more customizable, but need to interface to third-party clinicals. On the other hand, enterprise EDIS vendor products are maturing, with more focus on making the solution match ED clinician workflow. They continue to enjoy significant wins as a result of being part of larger enterprise decisions.

  • Allscripts HealthMatics ED
