The New York/New Jersey Veterans Healthcare Network (VISN 3) has selected San Diego-based CliniComp’s Essentris ED and Essentris Critical Care solutions to improve quality, safety and outcomes at its emergency departments, intensive care and post anesthesia care units, the company says.

VISN 3, one of Washington-based U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ 21 Veterans Integrated Service Networks, will deploy the solutions at several of its facilities, including the James J. Peters VA Medical Center, Northport VA Medical Center, and East Orange Campus of the VA New Jersey Healthcare System, says CliniComp.

The company claims the suite will replace paper flowsheets in the medical and surgical ICUs, and will interoperate with VistA Computerized Patient Record System and Bar Code Medication Administration. CliniComp’s solutions will assist VA clinicians in extracting real-time data and waveforms from physiologic monitors, infusion pumps, ventilators and other bedside devices, and will help create a more complete picture of the patient’s condition, it touts.
