ED PulseCheck

Powering performance in the emergency department, helping clinicians drive clinical excellence, fiscal sustainability, and facilitate improved quality of care across the care continuum

Essential requirements for a high-performance ED EMR include:

Complete clinical documentation and advanced decision support

  • Robust functionality coupled with ease of use and customizable processes mapped to clinicians’ preferred workflow
  • Rules processor and decision support content for operational and charge rules,
  • Advanced risk mitigation and clinician-defined clinical rules content to help proactively identify high risk patients
  • Enhanced allergy handling together with centralized storage of patient allergy information
  • Dose checking against reference ranges, including parameters such as weight, age and gender to help avoid risk of incorrect or missing information being entered in the system
  • Smooth transition from ICD-9-CM (clinical modification) to ICD-10-CM including a “dual use” transition period

Help achieve ED target goals and performance tracking• 

  • Easy-to-view dashboards for tracking key ED metrics focused on operational efficiency, financial health, and clinical quality for recent time periods, shareable between all stakeholders

Integrated charge capture documentation providing full, optimal reimbursement for all patients — those that stay in the hospital and those that go home

  • Integration of Optum™ LYNX ED Charging Application (formerly LYNX E/Point) with ED PulseCheck® to ensure consistent, compliant facility visit level calculation

Seamless interoperability with the rest of the hospital network

  • Standards-based Continuity of Care Document (CCD) connectivity, including LOINC-coded lab results, with HIEs and other compliant systems
  • Viewing a Continuity of Care Report (CCR) with historical visit information received from a HIE repository
  • Proven working interfaces, facilitates medication administration and reconciliation, ease of order management and integration with EHR and other clinical documentation
  • Interoperability packages for major hospital information systems (HIS) to enable full interoperability with the patient at the center of this information-sharing process
  • Intuitive web native architecture
  • Improved mobile access via the iPad to facilitate key events in a patient’s visit such as medication and ancillary order entry, discharge instruction and prescription entry, and disposition

Integrated visibility into hospital resources

  • Integrated view of ED resources, enables EDs and hospitals to define and manage their own workflow rules improving cross departmental intercommunication, patient admissions and ED throughput
  • Patient experience prioritized through improved tracking and sharing of patient data within the hospital and with the external healthcare community at large
  • At-a-glance tracking of key performance metrics tried to ED operational, financial, hospital’s clinical goals

ONC-ATCB certified to help hospitals meet meaningful use requirements

  • Picis ED PulseCheck has been certified for a total of 23 individual meaningful use criteria and is a key driver in the meaningful use strategy of many hospitals
  • Near real time clinical documentation, review and modification of list of patient problems
  • Exchange of problem list of current and active patient diagnoses to and from external sources via ADT message or continuity of care documents (CCDs)
  • Attach ICD-9 or ICD-10 codes to complaints, data capture and reports to enable consistent and accurate charge capture during transition period (Learn more)
