David Grant USAF Medical Center (DGMC) at Travis Air Force Base, Calif., has gone with San Diego-based

CliniComp Intl.’s Essentris inpatient clinical documentation solution.

The deployment includes Essentris CPOE, GDR (Global Data Repository) and OnWatch (clinical surveillance) in the medical/surgical, intensive care and medical health units. The 84-bed hospital plans to implement Essentris in the ED, perinatal, same-day surgery and post-anesthesia care units in the near future, according to the company.
