MEDHOST Releases Tools to Help Providers Effectively Identify Novel Coronavirus

Screening tools have been made available to MEDHOST customers nationwide to help identify Novel Coronavirus disease and distribute information to their patient populations


MEDHOST, Inc., a leading EHR (electronic health record) and healthcare IT solutions provider, has made available Coronavirus disease (COVID-19 or 2019-nCoV) screening for its solutions based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendation. During the last week of January, the new screening tools were made available to MEDHOST customers.

New travel-related screening questions are available within the MEDHOST Enterprise EHR and Emergency Department Information System (EDIS) workflows and MEDHOST customers can use these screenings in the inpatient or emergency department settings. 

“Quickly providing our customers with the tools needed to facilitate the identification of at-risk patients for outbreak risks that have been identified by CDC is a top priority for MEDHOST,” said Bill Anderson, Chairman and CEO at MEDHOST. “We are monitoring the situation and will provide updates to our customers as we get revised guidance from CDC.”

Today, more than 1,000 healthcare facilities are partnering with MEDHOST and enhancing their patient care and operational excellence with its clinical and financial solutions, which include a fully integrated EHR solution.
