Garden City Hospital in the US state of Michigan has upgraded its electronic health record solution in its emergency department to enhance patient safety.

Emergisoft’s CCHIT Certified 08 Emergency Department EHR solution will streamline clinical processes in the department and contributes to the hospital’s aim of acheiving “meaningful use” status, the company said.

The new solution will help maximise patient safety and increase physician productivity at the 323-bed community hospital.
