IDS to Launch Physician Verbal Order Solution at HIMSS 2011

Provides Medical Centers with a Simplified Way to Expedite and Authenticate Physician Orders

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Integrated Document Solutions (IDS), a pioneer in delivering cross-platform healthcare information applications, announced that it will launch its next-generation verbal order authentication solution at the upcoming HIMSS 2011 conference in Orlando, FL (Booth #1243).

The module, based on the company’s eForms technology, replaces hand-written forms with a distributed electronic workflow process to facilitate the authentication of physician verbal and telephone orders.

Using electronic replicas of a facility’s paper forms, a physician’s instructions are digitally recorded and placed into a secure workflow allowing doctors to electronically authenticate within the CMS mandated 48-hour timeframe using a web-enabled computer or mobile device.

“This addresses a significant and nagging problem facing hospitals: the timely authentication of a physician’s verbal order,” said IDS president Yaniv Dagan. “CPOE only goes so far. There will always be a need for physicians to verbally communicate instructions, so we’ve created a simple process for doctors, staff and the administrators.”

The verbal order authentication module features:

Customized Workflows: Facilities can create custom workflows to support different order types (such as medication, lab and respiratory orders) so that specific people are made part of the process and are properly notified. For example, facilities can decide how rejected orders should be handled, where they should be routed and who should receive automated notifications.

Physician Notifications: Doctors are notified of pending orders via e-mail or text message, and can receive repeated notices at various intervals. Upon logging in, physicians can view a worklist and electronically sign their orders.

Administrative Tracking Tools: Using AbbaDox®, IDS’ online workflow portal, administrators can monitor the status of all pending and completed orders and create customized reports.

Integration with HIM Systems: Images of the completed orders and a full audit trail can be sent via interface to the HIM system, and all data collected from the physician order eForms are available for meaningful use reporting.

Cross-Platform Availability: The verbal order solution supports PC and Mac® computers, iPad™, iPhone™, Android™ and Windows Mobile™ smartphone devices. Users can also access the system via their preferred Web browser.
