Mason, Ohio (PRWEB) May 24, 2012

eMerge Health Solutions today announced that Tri-State Gastroenterology Associates has selected its software eMerge|ENDO™ for procedure documentation and workflow for their endoscopy center.

Located in Crestview Hills, KY, 75 employees support Tri-State Gastroenterology Associates including 7 physicians, and 3 mid-level providers (nurse practitioners/physician assistant). The practice specializes in Gastroenterology and associated digestive disease disorders; and serves as a site for national clinical research protocol development.

“We evaluated several solutions, and after determining the efficiencies we will gain using the eMerge|ENDO™ solution, we decided that partnering with eMerge Health was the right decision,” stated Dr. Jack Rudnick, Jr., COO of Tri-State Gastroenterology Associates. “Quality, efficiency, and continuity of care are among the pillars of healthcare our practice has been built on so this software will help us serve our patients better,” Rudnick added.

eMerge|ENDO™ is a hands-free intra-operative documentation and workflow software system that allows physicians and nurses to document procedures in real-time by utilizing keyword driven voice commands specific to the GI industry. All of the procedural notes, pathology documentation, and billing codes can be captured and distributed accordingly throughout the medical facility. It also encompasses a comprehensive workflow solution from pre-op, through the procedure, and into recovery and post-op.

“Tri-State is a prime example of a rapidly growing, bottom-line oriented medical practice that needs the best documentation and workflow solution,” said Trent McCracken, President and CEO of eMerge Health. “By having the images, video, coding, and documentation generated at the moment of care, the physicians and nurses are able to spend more time with their patients.”
