Prince George’s County Health Department Implements Integrated EHR and PHR System

Largo, Md. – January 23, 2013 – Prince George’s County Health Department is deploying a new electronic health record (EHR) system and Personal Health Records (PHRs) to further its goals of improved efficiencies in patient care and management.

The Largo, Maryland-based public health department is implementing WebChart EHR from Medical Informatics Engineering, Inc. (MIE) and an integrated PHR from NoMoreClipboard across all 25 of its clinics in three divisions — women’s health, epidemiology and mental health.  The first phase of the project was deployed in December 2012 with additional functionality being added in early 2013.

“We have always taken a progressive approach to healthcare,” said Ernest Carter, MD at Prince George’s County Health Department. “Our goal is to use health information technology as a way to improve efficiencies across the entire department which in turn, will lead to reduced costs and improved quality of care for all patients.”

Prince George’s County’s EHR system will be used for appointment scheduling, registration and medical record documentation.  The health department also plans to integrate the WebChart solution with Personal Health Records from NoMoreClipboard that will enable patients to collect and store their complete health history, and allow them to communicate electronically with their physicians.

“The PHR from NoMoreClipboard is an automatic extension of the EHR,” said Barbara Banks-Wiggins, IT Project Manager at Prince George’s County Health Department.  “Not only will it help patients better manage their healthcare, but it will give physicians a comprehensive view of all patient data available to improve the gaps that often exist between hospital-based and office-based care.”

The Prince George’s County Health Department is working with ZaneNet Connect on this project. ZaneNet Connect is a Maryland-certified management service organization that helps healthcare providers select and implement health IT solutions and connect to Maryland’s health information exchange.

Over 30 physicians, serving 12,855 patients, will have access to the EHR / PHR solution.

Washington D.C. Health System Implements WebChart from Medical Informatics Engineering to Manage Military Physicals and Maritime Medicine Worldwide

A Washington D.C. health system is utilizing a Web-based telemedicine application from MIE to collect, track and manage medical information gathered from military field physicals in the Middle East and maritime medicine worldwide.  The system is already reducing monthly costs by about $6,000, and will improve the quality of care for military personnel. Military personnel will also have the opportunity to set up a personal health record (PHR) to carry with them throughout their military career and well into the future.

Fort Wayne, Ind. – October 20, 2011 – In an effort to improve the quality of care and health outcomes for patients on eight U.S. Military bases throughout the Area Support Group – Kuwait while also keeping costs down, Medical Informatics Engineering (MIE) today announced that The George Washington University Medical Faculty Associates (GW-MFA) is utilizing MIE’s WebChart to collect, track and manage medical information gathered from field physicals in the Middle East and patient encounters.
In Phase One of the project, implemented in January 2011, MIE developed a Web-based system to help GW-MFA physicians in the Middle East easily and quickly record and manage medical information.  Patient encounters are also documented in the field and shared with physicians at GW-MFA.
Phase Two of the project, rolling out now, will give physicians the ability to collect medical data in the field even when they have limited internet access, and then automatically synchronize the information with WebChart when internet access is available.  In addition, MIE is creating an electronic telemedicine application in support of Maritime Medical Access – the flagship telemedicine service provided by The George Washington University Medical Faculty Associates.   The Web-based telemedicine application will assist GW-MFA Emergency Physicians when responding to and treating ill crew members at sea.  These patient encounters will be kept within WebChart and HIPAA-compliant information will be forwarded to the ship’s company to inform them of the treatment and follow up protocols.
“WebChart from MIE has greatly improved patient care for our Maritime Medical Access patients and has already started to reduce costs,” said Kyle Keenan, Director of Remote Medical, GW-MFA Department of Emergency Medicine. “Not only are we able to give our patients — all of whom are thousands of miles away on a ship — the best possible care, we’re also able to provide this care more efficiently.  MIE was able to scale its web-based system to provide quick point and click entry.  Since WebChart is internet based, we also don’t have to worry about servers being down and / or inaccessible overseas.”
“MIE’s WebChart is expected to save us approximately $3,000 per year in servers on the ships, and an additional $3,000 per month on bandwidth airtime on our big vessels,” continued Keenan.  “Further cost savings and improved patient care will also be realized if one of our crew members needs to be transferred to a port for further treatment.  Diverting a vessel at the last minute can be very costly.  WebChart gives us a big picture look at our patients so there are no surprises.”
As part of the application, MIE and The GW-MFA will also create a personal health record (PHR) for the patient and automatically transfer the information into the patient’s account.  Crew members will also have the option of setting up their own NoMoreClipboard PHR prior to deployment to allow the ship’s medical officer and the clinical staff, greater access to their full medical history.
“We are honored to be working with The George Washington University Medical Faculty Associates on these very innovative projects that will help improve the quality of healthcare for America’s military, while significantly reducing costs” said Bruce Lisanti, president and CEO of Medical Informatics Engineering.  “WebChart will help GW-MFA easily collect and manage medical information on remote patients that will help improve their medical care while in the military and then be available for them whenever they need it, either at a military or civilian facility.”
