Product Features

Compelling Reasons Why Clients Choose the Empower ED™ Product

Compelling User Acceptance

As ED leadership knows all too well, if an Electronic Health Record slows down documentation of patient care either at the bedside or at the end of a shift, both physicians and nurses will logically request technology alternatives. Empower ED™ users are proficient on Day One and hone their skills faster than with competing products.

Fully Comprehensive

Many EHR solutions provide robust functionality, but often don't allow for comprehensive documentation of the full continuum of care within the ED. Empower ED™ requires comprehensive documentation on every patient chart, every time. This supports expert patient care and reduces liability.

Designed by Clinicians

Despite the best intentions, non-clinical programmers simply cannot replicate the subtle workflow needs of an ED clinicians. Empower ED™ was developed and continues to be led by practicing Board Certified physicians and registered nurses. This translates to the most user-friendly, intuitive EHR available to ED users today.

The combination of 2014 Edition ONC Complete EHR Certification with 100% User Acceptance on Day one translates to fully comprehensive documentation and a more efficient Emergency Department. ROI is attained by complete, accurate billing, delivery of efficient patient care documentation, and successful MU attestation.
