, a market-leading Emergency Department Information System (EDIS), announces the expansion of CMR EDIS as the information system of choice for freestanding emergency departments (EDs). Priority Emergency Room’s newest location in The Woodlands, Texas, as well as Physician ER’s Conroe and Wallisville locations have recently implemented the intuitive information system.

In today’s healthcare environment, more freestanding ED facilities are emerging to help alleviate ED overcrowding and offer patients better access to services and care. As such, many are deploying the same information technology solutions utilized in large hospital-affiliated emergency departments. By having immediate access to electronic medical records, lab results, allergy alerts and other critical patient information, ER physicians and nurses see this technology having a positive impact on providing the best and most efficient care possible to their patients.

All three freestanding emergency departments will benefit from the system’s inherent functionality and usability, while gaining instantaneous access to patient information. Through effective documentation of clinical activities, facilities will gain improved workflow, patient care and safety. Browser-based to ease demands on IT departments, CMR integrates seamlessly with administrative, lab and clinical enterprise systems for enhanced care coordination, reporting and analytics.

“Meeting the growing demands of instant access to quality care in any emergency setting, Priority Emergency Room and Physician ER are joining the technological wave of facilities with specialized EDIS solutions to improve patient care, safety and department efficiency,” says Robert Tassin, MD, physician support director of CMR. “We are pleased with the opportunity to provide our product and services to assist them in offering the highest quality of care to those with urgent and critical medical needs.”

CMR is an integrated, intuitive EDIS enabling emergency medicine professionals to instantly access medical information and efficiently document patient care. Browser-based to ease demands on IT departments, the CMR information system integrates seamlessly with both administrative and clinical systems in the hospital for enhanced care coordination, reporting and analytics. Started in 1998 by Cris Mandry, MD, founding program director of the Louisiana State University Emergency Medicine Residency, CMR was designed to meet the needs of all healthcare professionals directly involved with the care of patients: ED physicians, nurses, ancillary care and administrative staff. Its ease of use enhances department workflow; improves clinicians’ access to critical information; increases patient throughput; boosts eligibility for stimulus and reimbursement dollars; and reduces opportunities for medical errors.
