The first of three Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals (TJUH, Philadelphia) is live with its Emergency Department Information System (EDIS) from Somerset, N.J.-based Wellsoft.

Since going live in March, the Center City Campus of Thomas Jefferson University Hospital has realized several benefits, including: “at a glance” patient status, risk management alerts and threshold notifications, real-time graphical ED status “dashboard,” automated data collection, reporting and simultaneous access to electronic patient charts by clinicians and consulting specialists. The facility provides emergency care for over 59,000 patients each year.

TJUH plans to rollout Wellsoft’s EDIS to its other two locations, Methodist Hospital and Jefferson Hospital for Neuroscience.

The Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals now have 957 licensed acute care beds, with major programs in a wide range of clinical specialties.
