Our EMR framework unifies core ASC objectives of maximizing patient safety, while leveraging cost-saving processes.
Remote Access & Real-time Insights
Enable clinicians to work, sign, and complete charts from any location. Access real-time patient info, case costing, and staff utilization. With LiveEdit™ technology, multiple users can access and chart on a single patient simultaneously and communicate changes made. Clinicians can do their job more efficiently without waiting for someone to release the record.
Fully Visible Patient Safety
Improve patient care by enabling your clinicians to promptly adapt procedures or treatments in response to real-time insights from another clinician’s documentation. This immediate exchange of critical information not only enhances patient safety, but also creates a collaborative environment that elevates the standard of care.
Our LiveEdit™ technology shows—in real time—all updates to the patient chart, ensuring continuous and cohesive communication among clinicians. Enhance collaboration on patient care and bridge gaps in information sharing, leading to more informed decisions and a unified approach to patient treatment.
Enhance Clinical workflow
Optimize clinical workflows by enabling clinicians to instantly adapt their approach based on comprehensive, up-to-date information from other clinicians, streamlining the decision-making process. Minimize administrative burdens, leading to a smoother, more efficient workflow that benefits both providers and patients.
Increase Speed to Revenue
An ASC’s success is often dependent on the efficiency and rapid turnaround of surgical cases. With paper heavy charting methods, ASCs get bogged down with slow, inefficient processes which delay payment. With HST eChart, speed, collaboration, and flexibility are built-in every step away, ultimately increasing your ASC’s speed to revenue.
100% Chart Completion
HST eChart streamlines chart completion with automated processes, helping to quickly identify incomplete charts and ensuring timely task assignments, including peer reviews. Through automated tasks based on pre-determined triggers, all clinicians will see tasks assigned when lab results need to be reviewed, operative reports are missing or incomplete, and more.
How It Works
1. Verify Patient Details
Ensure you’re charting the right patient with a quick glance at their image. Easily view vital stats like weight in KG, BMI, and Gender ID. With the flexibility to have multiple charts open at once, the pin icon streamlines navigation across all open charts.
2. Customize Your Charts
Input the patient’s height and weight in either standard or metric units and let the system auto-calculate the BMI. Experience real-time collaboration as multiple users can chart simultaneously. With LiveEdit™, you’ll see updates highlighted with a purple halo and the name of the contributor. Plus, customize your charting BLOCS to fit your needs.
3. Manage Incomplete Tasks
Meet your solution to never missing a record again with the Task Manager. With the Task Manager, get directed straight to missing data fields. If a task isn’t yours, effortlessly reassign it to the right staff member.
4. Track Patient Progress
