The University of Virginia Health System (Charlottesville, Va.) has implemented Addison, Texas-based Medhost’s Emergency Department Information System (EDIS) to automate process, streamline workflow and improve communication and patient care, the company says.

The solution enables University of Virginia (UVA)’s ED clinicians to quickly document patient data and access decision support tools at the bedside, resulting in increased patient safety, it touts.

The UVA Health System consists of four components: the University of Virginia Medical Center, an integrated network of primary and specialty care; the University of Virginia School of Medicine; the University of Virginia School of Nursing; and the Claude Moore Health Sciences Library.
