EMO i-HIS – Free HIS for Hospitals
iPhysician Hub’s Hospital Information System (EMO i-HIS) has several unique advantages over other existing legacy HIS systems. EMO i-HIS focuses on four functional areas – care management, day-to-day operations management, finance management and inventory management. Care management handles out-patient as well as in-patient care management – starting from registration, inpatient care, and discharge. Out-patient module handles the department specific and doctor specific schedules, patient registration, patient appointments as well as billing. EMO i-HIS also has the provision to generate prescription orders, clinical summary, and patient registration card (this also helps during emergency as emergency card).
In-patient module can handle the department specific, ward specific, nursing station specific parameters including inter-department, intra department transfers (moving from one ward to other ward, ward to operation theater, etc.). Doctor’s instructions can be recorded for each patient during doctor consultant rounds. The nursing station can view and follow the doctor’s instructions irrespective of the shift changes.
Finance management brings the required flexibility in the overall system with variable costing, billing options based on the “point of service”. Inventory management mainly helps the in-house pharmacies to have single comprehensive view of medications as well as the other consumables. Medications or the consumables indented, consumed, returned can be tracked and easily reconciled.
While maintaining independence of each EMO i-HIS module, the integrated workflow brings substantial value-add to operations & administrative management, including payment collections for each shift /day, shift roaster, and inventory status. Also, appointment snapshot, including potential choking area can be easily identified and addressed by designated hospital administrative staff. Other value-add services include transition of care between different providers, patient referrals, information exchange, and care management, with little or extra efforts for either party.
