Building a bridge succesfully to Healthcare IT in the Cloud

Inpatient EHR

Choice Hospital Systems Cloud Based Inpatient EHR Hosted on AWS....

Physician Documentation

Physicians enter notes directly into the Choice-HS EHR via the keyboard, voice recognition, or dictate into the system which integrates transcription features Physicians can easily record patient problems, enter medication orders based on the latest formulary, and order lab tests and other departmental services. They see drug and allergy alerts immediately. Time-consuming tasks related to medication reconciliation, patient instructions and education materials, and discharge notes are streamlined by pulling in data from the entire Choice-HS patient record.

Smart Elements embed related clinical information into the appropriate documentation, reducing the time required for physicians to complete and sign notes. Because the entire Choice-HS EHR is available on their iPads, physicians can sign discharge orders and summaries conveniently and securely from any location.

Workflow logic incorporates information from earlier encounters, reducing needless searching for important patient information, and ensuring that clinical decisions are based on a complete view of the patient’s historythat clinical decisions are based on a complete view of the patient’s history

Smart Elements can be shared across specialties, or with other individual physicians, maximizing the benefits of standardized care throughout the facility.

Nursing documentation

Nursing tasks are fully automated in the Choice HS EHR – triage, assessment, charting allergies, vitals, I&O, and documentation such as 24 hour flow sheets and discharge plans. These routine activities are pre-populated with required fields and compliance logic. Nurses and physicians view the electronic chart with full nursing documentation and integrated data from existing systems immediately – i.e., lab results, medications, clinical history. .

Nursing workflows can be customized to reflect existing processes so your busy nursing staff doesn’t have to change how they take care of patients. Built-in compliance ensures complete and accurate documentation.

Choice-HS is not just "easy to use", but also easy to learn, and integrate into clinicians’ workflows. The familiar user interface makes the difference.

Smart Elements prevent duplicate entries and ensure that information is presented at the appropriate time, to the appropriate user, in the right context.

Smart Elements track clinicians’ work, showing completed steps with a clear visual indicator, and automatically taking the user to the appropriate next step.

Rich medical content reduces free-text errors and enforces standardization, where appropriate.

Patient lists are easy to use and navigate, based on defined tasks, and organized by departments and/or user types. No more hunting for patients or information about them.

Nurses and physicians have complete and comprehensive medical information in an easy-to-read, linear view of each patient’s most current encounter.

Emergency Dept documentation

Emergency services are fully integrated with the Choice-HS EHR. The Emergency Department System (EDS) allows immediate access to the patient's medical history. Designed for the management of busy emergency rooms the Choice-HS EDS provides simplified registration, supports faster triage, and provides easy access to information to improve care, reduce wait times, and streamline patient processing.

The Choice-HS EHR improves patient care and patient outcomes while increasing efficiency across your healthcare organization. Through the use of its innovative technology, Choice-HS delivers an affordable solution that rivals the much more expensive offerings of legacy EHR vendors. With a patient-centric view physicians, nurses, and other clinicians see the complete patient history -- labs, radiology, medications, physician and nursing documentation – in a single, easy-to-navigate view.

- Integrated Electronic Health Record (EHR)
- Nurse documentation and charting
- True integration of all clinical functions across departments
- Clinical decision support
- Specialty workflow within the hospital
- Computerized provider order entry (CPOE)
- Results reporting
- Patient discharge


Scheduling features of the Choice-HS EHR manage schedules across the entire organization. Schedules can be customized for the unique needs of each department and resource type. Remote access via the Web allows clinicians to request specific times and resources, improving patient satisfaction by accommodating patients with special needs or preferences. Pre-admission forms and special requests can be easily managed through the Choice-HS EHR. Scheduling administrators will be alerted to special requests, conflicts, cancellations, and other anomalies, so they can manage their resources efficiently with minimal disruption to customer service and patient care.


The Choice-HS EHR supports telemedicine with interactive features that utilize the newest technologies and telecommunications. The Choice-HS telemedicine solution allows patients to visit with physicians via live video for immediate care through personal interaction. Patient information is recorded in the EHR during the telemedicine visit, and the physician can enter details of the exam real-time. The Choice-HS telemedicine module allows a hospital to extend its reach into the community and beyond by giving access to high quality care to remote areas and or patients with limited mobility.


Our cloud-based solution gives your organization the full functionality of an on-site EHR solution without the IT headaches and upfront costs.

You get a great EHR that doctors and nurses love because it improves the quality and efficiency of care delivery, improving patient satisfaction, and reducing staff turn-over. All at dramatically reduced operating costs, which makes everyone happy.
