Version 188.8.131.52 of ALERT® EDIS went live on August 22, 2012, at San José Tec de Monterrey Hospital in Mexico.
Established in 1969, this private hospital has been awarded several accreditations and certifications, which make it one of the most important and prestigious healthcare facilities in Mexico: international accreditation by the Joint International Commission since 2007, certification of their Centre of Multi-organ Transplants by the Ministry of Health of Mexico and recognition by the White House, Washington, USA, for complying with requirements when providing healthcare to the President of the USA, and by the Spanish Embassy for also complying with requirements when providing healthcare to the Spanish Prime-Minister.
With over 40 years of experience, San José Tec de Monterrey Hospital provides a wide range of excellent clinical services. The hospital offers emergency services, outpatient appointments, operating rooms, a blood bank, hemodialysis, audiometry, cardiology, endoscopy, breast treatment, hemodynamics, imaging services, lab tests, radiology, radiotherapy and 40 medical specialties. All these services will be supported by ALERT® PAPER FREE HOSPITAL (PFH), which will be implemented until the end of 2013.
The hospital's emergency services include 80 professionals, including administrative staff, ancillary, nurses and physicians. San José Tec de Monterrey's emergency services are connected to other hospital services (which integrate a further 150 professionals) and to other external physicians (over two thousand) who use the services made available by the facility. Over two thousand professionals are already registered to work with ALERT®.
ALERT® EDIS has been integrated with other information systems of the hospital, such as SAP, PYXIS, WINLAB and CARESTREAM. The implementation of this ALERT® PFH module follows the implementation of ALERT® PRESCRIPTION and ALERT® PHARMACY, which are systems for the management and pharmacological monitoring of the hospital's medication and material.
ALERT® PFH is a clinical solution for hospitals that produces comprehensive and integrated clinical records and also provides management tools that promote more efficient hospital operations.
