JACKSON, Miss.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--American HealthTech (AHT), a wholly owned subsidiary of CPSI (NASDAQ: CPSI) and a leading provider of electronic health records (EHR) for the post-acute and senior living markets, is pleased to announce the general availability of their new user experience and two new licensable products that are designed around key clinical workflow.
With its well-organized and intuitive layout, the latest release of the AHT EHR is easy to learn and guides caregivers through patient care tasks in a meaningful way. In commenting on the announcement, Chris Read, RN, Nursing Informatics Specialist, Cedars Nursing Care Center, said, “The latest release of the AHT EHR has a faster, more responsive and intuitive design. Our caregivers can quickly access only the patient information they need, saving us valuable time and clicks.”
AHT also announced the release of two new licensable products – the AHT Communication Center and e-Referral, which are designed to improve caregiver communications and patient care transitions. The new AHT Communication Center provides a caregiver security when using the HIPAA-compliant texting feature. Along with integrated chatting, emailing and faxing, this new product makes communicating easier and frees up more time to be spent with patients.
Jerry Haynes, Director of Nursing, Jefferson Park at Dandridge, said, “The AHT Communication Center is solving the missing communication link we had in our facility. We have peace of mind knowing our communications are secure, efficient and effective.”
In addition, AHT e-Referral allows post-acute facilities to electronically receive discrete information within the AHT EHR from an incoming Consolidated Clinical Document Architecture (CCDA), allowing for a faster and more comprehensive admission process.
Boyd Douglas, president and chief executive officer of CPSI, stated, “At American HealthTech, our clients are more than just a number to us. We listen to them and invest in their ideas. The process by which we have developed and tested our new user interface and products to ensure they improve clinical workflows illustrates our commitment to meeting our clients’ expectations. Our continued investment in product innovation is centered around helping to make the job easier for post-acute caregivers’ and giving them more time to deliver quality patient care.”
