Arlington, Texas-based Emergisoft has announced that the University Physicians Hospital (UPH) in Tucson, Arizona will implement EmergisoftED, the company’s emergency department information system, with services including patient tracking, nursing and physician documentation, real-time management reporting, and discharge instructions.

Emergisoft's emergency department software is a completely Web based solution that automates every step of the patient management and patient documentation process in the emergency department. With the implementation of EmergisoftED, UPH hopes to streamline processes, increase patient care, and enable the hospital to meet meaningful use requirements for stimulus benefits under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

UPH is a nonprofit corporation created in 1985 as the medical practice of the physicians of the UA College of Medicine. Together, UPH, The University of Arizona, and University Medical Center combine to care for patients, educate medical students, train young physicians and conduct clinical research. With over 400 physicians and 2000 staff, UPH is Arizona's largest physicians group.
