ALISO VIEJO, Calif., July 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- TAGNOS, a developer of workflow orchestration software for hospital operations, today announced that it was awarded Epic Integration certification and that it is now listed on the Epic App Orchard.
"With Epic being one the most popular EHRs on the market, we are proud to now enable customers to automatically transmit to Epic the timestamps we capture around patient movements and surgical milestones," said Sheila Minton, president and chief operating officer of TAGNOS. "Our Epic integration not only reduces manual data entry; it also offers critical benefits: Real-time updates to documentation and absolute data accuracy."
Over the years, TAGNOS has developed a state-of-the-art orchestration platform designed to improve the efficiency and safety in healthcare organizations and to reduce per capita health care costs. Its modules allow hospitals to optimize operations by reducing time-to-treatment, increasing room and asset utilization and creating predictive models to solve common issues such as slow room turnover, on time starts or inaccurate scheduling, to name just a few. Now, the TAGNOS Epic Integration Module extends the benefits of the TAGNOS orchestration platform to another key component of the operational stack.
"The Epic vetting process was very thorough and as part of the process they audited patient safety and data safety requirements and procedures. It was a great experience working with a very professional and diligent team," said Jag Padala, chief technology officer of TAGNOS. "We had two clear goals: performance and ease of use. Today, the ability to tag patients within Epic screens, transfer timestamps of patient movement from TAGNOS to Epic as well as the ability to transfer intra-op milestones such as surgical incision and surgery close times back to Epic which reduces the number of systems that staff have to log into to do their job. In addition to providing efficiency and reliability, this bidirectional integration also delivers on the sometimes-elusive dimension of the 'Quadruple Aim', improved working conditions for healthcare personnel."
