Orion Health has released version 20.2.0 of its complete hospital solution, Enterprise.
Enterprise is a functionally rich hospital information system that provides end-to-end management of hospitals across patient administration, clinical, departmental management, ancillary departments and back office.
In Enterprise 20.2.0 we have introduced several new features across departmental applications, back office and pharmacy. We have also enhanced the clinical documentation features that already exists in Enterprise with the ability to integrate seamlessly with third-party solution Quippe™, in order to support our customers' journey to HIMSS EMRAM accreditation.
The new features and enhancements included in the latest release focus on patient workflow and will enable hospitals to process patients through their system more efficiently and accurately.
These customer-focused innovations that will help users to work smarter include:
- Improved outpatient clinic management
Users are now able to make changes to sessions more efficiently with the introduction of session template edits. This improved functionality allows users to amend the session set up, define when any changes will take effect from and easily reschedule any patients impacted by the changes.
- Theatre management workflow enhancements
The ability for users to create a ‘Surgical Request' has been implemented as part of the surgical booking workflow. Users can utilise this new feature in order to keep track of the processes that need to be completed for a patient and hospital to be ready for surgery, prior to the booking being made. These requests can be created and managed in isolation or linked to an admission request or admission. Requests can then be booked into theatres, cancelled or deleted, with a viewable audit trail.
- Increased capabilities in back office for patient billing
Users are now able to edit single invoices that are part of a multiple invoice split provided they are in temporary status. Prior to this update, users were required to void all invoices in a split if any of them required editing. This feature will help to improve operational efficiencies and supports electronic invoice submissions. It is also a critical feature for billing insurance companies.
- Added safety checks in pharmacy module
Pharmacy products can now be configured to include the requirement for a co-signature upon administering medication to a patient. It is also possible to configure the requirement of a co-signature upon checking medication ordering for high risk pharmacy products. This new feature provides an additional layer of safety by ensuring medication is administered correctly and enhancing the monitoring of high-risk drug orders.
- Seamless integration of Quippe™ into patient chart and web clinicals
Customers can now seamlessly integrate Quippe™ into Enterprise using a single sign on with a consistent user interface look and feel. This integration enhances the creation of reports and clinical findings for display in the Overview tab. Quippe™ supports customers on their journey to HIMSS EMRAM accreditation through automatic coding of clinical documentation which enables better reporting and analytics.
In addition to these key enhancements and new features, the latest release of Enterprise also makes improvements to many other existing features and functions.
