Empower for Clinicians
Empower Inpatient+Ambulatory™ is the ONC Certified Comprehensive EHR which can serve as the clinical backbone to take your facility completely paperless in record time. By capturing 100% of clinical data for every patient and organizing it into documentation that is accessible to ALL hospital departments, successful EHR technology is easily within reach.
100% User Acceptance | All Users, All the Time
This is the only EHR with all physicians, and all clinical staff on computers, all the time, hospital-wide, from Day One. All clinical units benefit from a user-friendly, comprehensive clinical documentation repository which supports medical decision-making, improves the professional lives of clinicians, and supports Meaningful Use compliance…translating to user acceptance.
Total User-Friendliness | 8 Buttons for Doctors, 6 Buttons for Nurses
Documenting in empowerInpatient+AmbulatoryTM is intuitive and logical for physicians and nurses alike. They need only learn 8 and 6 buttons, respectively, in order to produce a complete medical record for every patient. Smart Technology ensures that the rest of the chart is complete with all necessary documentation.
Easy Physician Orders | One-Click Order Entry
empowerInpatient+AmbulatoryTM simplifies the Order Entry process significantly. Any time an order is entered, including verbal orders, they are highlighted to notify the physician to sign off on them. This means NO incomplete charts/medical records, NO unsigned orders, and translates to 100% physician acceptance.
SOAP Notes | One Time, One Place
The physician’s SOAP note is tremendously flexible and much faster than paper or inefficient electronic documentation. Available one time, frequently used in one place, assessment plans and templates can be built and easily edited, saving significant time.
Workflow Does Not Change | All the Pros Without the Cons
The clinical process is not altered—it’s enhanced and streamlined. For nurses, every aspect of documenting patient care is more efficient, and physicians can maintain their preferred method of documentation: transcription, Voice Dragon, or free-text can be used at any time for thorough but fast documentation.
Easy Trending + Filtering | A Nurse’s Dream
Empower automatically calculates fluid intakes and outputs (Is & Os, etc.) and performs automatic trending for your hardworking nurses and populates the patient’s chart with this crucial data.
Data at Your Fingertips | Unlimited Forms + Reports
The integrated form builder offers as many forms as clinicians want. All data is captured in structured fields, translating to unlimited MUAM, OPI, and QA reports for clinical staff and hospital administration.
Empower for IT Professionals
Empower Inpatient™ is an ONC Certified Comprehensive EHR with open system architecture designed for efficient maintenance and seamless integration with ANY Core Hospital Information System.
Stable Microsoft SQL Platform
Empower Inpatient + Ambulatory™ is built on an open systems architecture as a philosophical basis for the future of Healthcare IT. SQL is an incredibly robust, stable database that can store almost unlimited information. Proprietary systems, on the other hand, are not as stable, are more difficult and expensive to maintain, and require more downtime, unlike Empower, which requires almost no downtime.
Empower uses as few hospital resources as possible, requiring only 20 to 40 hours of work for all interfaces.

Hardware & Software
Empower Inpatient + Ambulatory™ works with virtually any Windows-based hardware, from desktops to wireless laptops to tablet PCs/iPads. Hardware selected by a hospital is a matter of user preference, depending on whether users prefer to point & click, tab, scroll, or employ touchscreens.
Non-redundant, seamless transfer of information between all hospital units, physician offices, and hospital networks.
Comprehensive Implementation Methodology
Empower Inpatient + Ambulatory™ has every step from User Training to GoLive to Interface Development down to a science.
Efficient Project Management
Empower Inpatient + Ambulatory™ employs real-time project management software to ensure that our team and the hospital’s team can quickly identify the status of tasks leading up to GoLive. In effect, Empower outsources to itself the func- tion of most traditional roles the hospital must fulfill on a project of this nature. This enables us to guarantee full deployment within an industry-leading timeframe, while most projects of this nature are still underway after many years.
Empower Inpatient + Ambulatory™ requires very minimal upkeep by the IT department, meaning your staff can be involved as much or as little as they want.
The Empower Partnership delivers unprecedented IT & Clinical Support 24/7/365 to ensure that we deliver on the promise of improved quality of care and patient satisfaction, reduced length of stay, and a truly integrated EHR.
