Houston, Texas-based Emergency Health Centre (EHC), an emergency care facility designed around a concierge ED model, has implemented Mission Viejo, Calif.-based Patient Care Technology Systems' (PCTS) Amelior ED patient tracking and charting system.

The company says the Amelior ED system provides information management from patient triage to disposition, and core modules include patient tracking, nurse and physician charting, computerized provider order entry, clinical decision support and patient disposition management.

Earlier this year, PCTS announced its partnership with Sonitor Technologies (Oslo, Norway) to integrate ultrasound locating with its tracking and charting systems. EHC is the first emergency care provider in the nation to implement an emergency department information system that integrates ultrasound-based automatic patient and asset tracking, says PCTS.
