Free Documentation Tool to Help Hospital Emergency Departments

Dallas, TX - To help hospital emergency departments (EDs) prepare for the height of flu season and the associated overcrowding, T-System is offering T Sheets® flu documentation templates free of charge to all hospitals and healthcare providers. Providers can download the documentation tool.

The severity of the 2012-2013 flu season was a reminder of how unpredictable influenza can be. EDs across the country operated at capacity and were forced to set up secondary treatment areas in parking lots, hallways, conference rooms and clinics to meet demand.
“With the extreme resource and space strains that hospitals faced last year, we felt it was critical to offer our assistance again this season,” said Corinne Tso, T-System’s vice president of marketing. “Providers can find their usual documentation tools too onerous to keep pace with the volume of patients presenting to EDs during a major outbreak. T Sheets offer an easy and structured way to document care both onsite and offsite more efficiently.”

The T Sheets paper templates are updated to reflect diagnostic and treatment protocols specific to the virus strains identified this season. The templates support consistent charting and critical patient health information capture, while ensuring hospitals meet regulatory and reimbursement needs. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports flu activity is currently increasing, particularly in the Southeast and South Central regions of the country. Continue>
