Somerset, NJ – December 22, 2011 – Wellsoft Corporation is pleased to announce that Pikeville Medical Center, in Pikeville, Kentucky, is live with Wellsoft’s Emergency Department Information System (EDIS). Pikeville Medical Center, a 261 bed hospital, provides cares for more than 38,000 ED patients each year and was named National Hospital of the Year by American Alliance of Healthcare Providers for 2010 – 2011.
A key feature of this implementation includes the integration between Wellsoft EDIS and the hospital information systems to support Emergency Department workflows.
