T-System Announces Licensing Agreement With Prognosis Health Information SystemsT-System's New Licensing Offering Allows EHR Vendors to Purchase Its Clinical Terminology, Expanding the Company's Role in the HIT Industry (February 29, 2012)
DALLAS, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 02/29/12 -- T-System, Inc. today announced an agreement to license its clinical terminology, a component of its gold-standard emergency medicine content, to Prognosis Health Information Systems. This non-exclusive licensing agreement permits Prognosis HIS to incorporate into its ChartAccess® Comprehensive EHR the more than 200,000 T-System chief complaint-based emergency department clinical phrases.
The industry leader in clinical, business and IT solutions for emergency medicine, T-System content has been used in more than 1,700 EDs, or 40 percent of U.S. hospitals, during the past 15 years. It has been tested and honed across more than 250 million ED visits and remains the most in-depth, industry validated content to support premier emergency care. T-System content encompasses six primary elements: design and presentation; clinical terminology; clinical decision support rules; order sets; the clinical phrase builder; and encoding support for ICD and CPT codes.
"We are pleased to offer T-System's clinical terminology to our rural and critical access hospital clients because it is the most comprehensive and refined emergency medicine terminology available," said Ramsey Evans, Prognosis HIS president and chief executive officer. "This knowledge will strengthen our solution because it supports the ED care process with emergency medicine content, and using market leading content -- rather than building it from the ground up -- will help us expand capabilities faster to better meet the needs of our target market."
Under the licensing contract, T-System will provide updates, both routine and as-needed, to its clinical terminology to ensure continued regulatory compliance and the use of industry best practices involving medical safety and provider efficiency.
"We're thrilled to expand T-System's market presence by incorporating our clinical terminology into Prognosis EHR solutions," said Sunny Sanyal, T-System chief executive officer. "This agreement promotes our mission to integrate T-System everywhere emergency medicine is practiced, and it upholds the Prognosis HIS mission to help providers improve the quality, safety and efficiency of patient care."
