West Calcasieu Cameron Hospital Chooses Wellsoft EDIS to Streamline Emergency Department Workflow and Billing Efficiencies, and Improve Quality of Care
Somerset, NJ – January 28, 2019 – Wellsoft Corporation, a Best in KLAS award-winning Electronic Health Record (EHR) provider for Emergency Departments, is pleased to announce West Calcasieu Cameron Hospital (WCCH) in Sulphur, Louisiana has selected Wellsoft EDIS (Emergency Department Information System). A 107-bed hospital in southwestern Louisiana, WCCH cares for approximately 33,000 emergency department (ED) patients annually.
WCCH selected Wellsoft for its comprehensive Emergency Department-specific EHR that is easy-to-use and fully tailorable to fit the hospital’s specific needs, workflow and goals. The new system will replace non-electronic documentation in the ED and will integrate with the hospital’s current Allscripts® Paragon Hospital Information System.
“As part of our goal to provide exceptional healthcare to our community, we continuously recognize the ever-changing needs of healthcare and technology available for our emergency department,” said Brenda Quesnel, Chief Nursing Officer and Chief Clinical Officer at WCCH. “After a thorough review process, we chose Wellsoft not only for their proven track record of successful implementations and support, but also because our team felt their Best in KLAS EHR was the right solution in terms of its feature set, robust charge capture and billing capabilities, and advanced analytics. This innovative technology will help streamline our workflow and financial management, as well as further strengthen the quality of care for our patients.”
Dr. John Santmann, President of Wellsoft Corporation, commented, “In this current and everchanging healthcare environment, it is more important than ever for hospitals to find a health IT partner they can trust – and that has the ability to integrate seamlessly with other systems. We are thrilled WCCH has chosen us as that partner, and we are deeply committed to delivering healthcare solutions that will serve the hospital and its community now and in the future.”
Implementation planning is underway, with anticipated go-live in early to mid-2019.
