Hospitals today deal with a multiplicity of broad-reaching operational inefficiencies— a consequence of having many systems that can’t communicate with each other.
The need to extract data from multiple systems can create significant issues in submitting quality data to regulatory and quality organizations. In addition, patient throughout is slowed if clinicians have to wait for records to be retrieved from different systems. Even standard reports are often complex and time-consuming to generate. Ultimately, the time and resources spent repeatedly checking multiple systems for records and reconciling data between different systems don’t contribute to the quality of care.
FOTIS-HIS allows users to seamlessly combine data currently which may remain scattered across the enterprise into a simple, single user interface for viewing and analysis. Quality measures can be tracked in real time, and critical hand-offs between clinicians and other caregivers can occur more easily.
