Great Plains Regional Medical Center Teams with T-System to Provide Access to Patient Information and Contribute to HIE

T SystemEV enables interoperability to improve quality of care

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Great Plains Regional Medical Center (Great Plains) is delivering enhanced access to patient information across the facility and the greater medical community using T SystemEV®, the emergency department information system offered by T-System, Inc., the industry leader in clinical, business and IT solutions for emergency medicine.

With T SystemEV, Great Plains is now contributing emergency department (ED) health information to the Nebraska Health Information Initiative (NeHII), the nation’s first and most successful statewide health information exchange (HIE) organization. NeHII provides health information for more than 1.5 million patients in Nebraska, Iowa and Missouri to authorized physicians, hospitals, clinics and health insurance companies across the region. When Great Plains joined the initiative earlier this year, reports from T SystemEV were the first documents successfully transmitted from the hospital to NeHII. The participation of Great Plains and other healthcare organizations will help grow and strengthen this important initiative.

“With T SystemEV, ED records can be easily shared with other healthcare providers, improving communication and providing seamless patient care,” said James Smith, M.D., Vice President of Medical Affairs and Medical Director of the Emergency Department at Great Plains. “Without this tool, we just wouldn’t be able to provide patients with the same high level of quality care.”

In addition to contributing to NeHII, T SystemEV has helped Great Plains realize other ways to improve continuity of care including:

  • Provide immediate access to patient histories, lab results and historical medication lists
  • Import ED records into the inpatient hospital information system
  • Send the ED report to primary care physicians
