SAN FRANCISCO, June 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Neighbors Emergency Center, a nationwide leader in 24-hour emergency care, has selected Presidiohealth to streamline their operations and further improve their patients' experience. Presidiohealth will roll out their innovative technology suite called FSEC FOUNDATION,™ a collaboration between T-System and Presidiohealth designed to meet the needs of patients and providers in freestanding emergency centers (FEC). FSEC FOUNDATION™ combines T-System's full electronic Emergency Department Information System (EDIS) solution with Presidiohealth's suite of practice management tools.
"We look forward to helping Neighbors Emergency Center provide exceptional care to their patients," says Presidiohealth founder Douglas Evans, M.D. "We make sure caregivers have the right tools to focus their full attention on caring for patients – not paperwork – and making sure patients can focus on getting well instead of filling out forms and dealing with billing confusion and worrying about payments."
Neighbors Emergency Center is the largest independent provider of freestanding emergency centers in the country with locations in Texas, Colorado, and Rhode Island. This new partnership will allow clinicians and staff to digitally access a single patient record, no matter where that patient is in the system, and will streamline operational systems across Neighbors' 33 facilities.
"Our core mission is to be a patient-centered organization that focuses on personalized care offering the highest quality emergency medicine to the thousands of patients that depend on us each day. This partnership will give us the infrastructure we need to do just that," says Neighbors Emergency Center CEO Setul Patel, M.D., MBA.
Presidiohealth's practice management and business intelligence tools include: PerformPOS for patient registration, eligibility, propensity to pay, paperless forms, bedside mobile payments, patient financial services; PerformMD for enhanced coding and automated charge capture; and PerformCycle™ with integrated business information from point of service, coding, billing, and the EMR for enterprise-wide business analytics. T-System's best-of-breed EDIS solution set includes nurse documentation, physician documentation, tracking, computerized provider order entry (CPOE), as well as fully integrated labs and diagnostics.
T-System and Presidiohealth will also integrate their applications with ImagineSoftware, the vendor recently chosen by Neighbors Emergency Center to assist with billing and accounts receivable.
Neighbors Emergency Center and its patients will begin to experience the benefits of FSEC Foundation in the fall of 2017.
