San Diego-based CliniComp Intl., a global provider of mission critical clinical documentation systems, today announced that seven U.S. Air Force, Army and Navy military treatment facilities implemented Essentris EMR in second quarter 2010. The company’s Essentris system is a multidisciplinary EMR suite encompassing inpatient documentation, reporting and clinical surveillance for enterprise-wide workflow support to acute care hospitals, academic medical centers and integrated delivery networks. Essentris streamlines clinical workflows, simplifies access to unified patient data and helps organizations build a longitudinal patient health record.
