CMR, a market- leading Emergency Department Information System (EDIS), today announced Priority Emergency Room, a free-standing ER located in Katy, Texas, has selected CMR as its information technology system.
As more freestanding ER facilities open up across the country to help alleviate ER overcrowding and offer patients better access to services and care, many are deploying the same information technology solutions utilized in large hospital affiliated emergency departments. By having immediate access to electronic medical records, lab results, allergy alerts and other critical information, ER physicians and nurses see this technology having a positive impact on providing the best and most efficient care possible to their patients.
“Wanting to leverage innovative healthcare technology to provide a quick and efficient working environment, we looked for a system that was user-friendly and intuitive to the unique needs found in an emergency room setting,” says Winnie King, MD and a co-owner of Priority Emergency Room. “In addition to meeting our system functionality requirements, the CMR support team has been by our side from day one, even staying overnight to ensure the implementation process went smoothly.”
“Working with Dr. King and the other ER physicians at Priority has been a great pleasure,” says Robert Tassin, MD, physician support director of CMR. ”We are delighted to provide our product and services to assist them in offering the highest quality of care to those with urgent and critical medical needs.”
