We are proud to recognize the six winners of the third annual T-System Client Excellence Awards, chosen from more than 1,900 facilities nationwide that use T-System solutions.
The awards recognize hospitals and primary and urgent care clinics that have partnered with T-System most effectively to improve their quality of patient care,
operational processes and financial results.
The award recipients are:
Louisville, Ky. – winner for Multi-Stakeholder Impact with an EDIS
The organization skillfully executed electronic health record (EHR)
implementations at five emergency departments (EDs) in 15 weeks. In 2011, Baptist successfully attested to Stage 1
™ to obtain $13 million in federal stimulus funding
. Additionally, the health
system’s five EDs decreased the patient length of stay by 6 percent and the admit decision to disposition time by 21 percent on average.
Bowling Green, Ky. – winner for Bottom Line Transformation
Kearney, Neb. – winner for Community Health Leadership
Also a 2010 T-System Client Excellence Award winner
for Nursing Care Efficiency, the Good Samaritan Hospital ED is recognized once again. The ED is spearheading a project to reduce alcohol-related trauma and abuse
by documenting on T Sheets® the time and location of a patient's most recent
alcohol consumption. The ED's collaboration with local law enforcement and community agencies will identify and raise awareness of establishments that serve alcohol to
minors or over serve patrons.
Livonia, Mich. – winner for ED Risk Mitigation
In addition to improving revenue with RevCycle+ coding services,
NetMD Business audited physician documentation with T Sheets to provide objective peer
review and targeted education and training. Expected benefits and outcomes of the program include improved physician documentation, patient satisfaction and
opportunities for increased reimbursement, which is expected to reduce medical malpractice.
Elizabethtown, Ky. – winner for Superior Patient Volume Management
Three months after going live with EV, Hardin Memorial Health reported substantial
success with key performance indicators. With 100 percent physician adoption, the ED decreased its average door-to-room time by 22 percent
(45 minutes to 35 minutes) and the average length of stay by 13 percent (216 minutes to 187 minutes).
Southport, N.C. – winner for Rapid Process Improvement with an EDIS
This critical access community hospital successfully used reporting and analytics tools to streamline ED processes and improve clinical documentation.
In addition, the hospital used EV to monitor its key performance indicators to improve patient care and benchmark its performance.
As part of the 2012 Client Excellence Awards program, T-System will make a donation to a hospital foundation or charity on behalf of each organization.
Winners will also receive a commemorative plaque and special recognition at the 2013 T-System linkED emergency care conference.
Congratulations to our winners!
