CodoniX makes EMR application available free to Hurricane Katrina Healthcare Providers
Potomac, MD. September 9, 2005. CodoniX, Inc. an industry leader in electronic medical record software for emergency departments, urgent care clinics, and physician offices announced today that it will make its CodoniXnotes application available free to any healthcare provider or site that is treating evacuees from Hurricane Katrina.
The CodoniXnotes application is a full featured electronic charting and coding application that can be accessed over the Internet. No hardware or software other than a workstation and a broadband Internet connection are required to use the system. Patient charts are stored on a HIPAA compliant secure server and can be accessed from anywhere there is an Internet connection.
"The diaspora caused by the evacuation of Gulf Coast residents has created a major health challenge" said Bill Boles President and CEO of CodoniX. "People are receiving health care around the country far from their regular doctors with no centralized way of storing the records of these visits. CodoniXnotes provides a fast and easy way of documenting allergies, medications, vaccinations, and past medical history as well as treatments and plans. These patient records are stored safely and securely on our secure systems." He went on to say "At any time, these charts can be sent electronically to any other provider or payer in an industry standard format that any PC can read. Charts can also be printed locally and given to the patient for their records"
The CodoniXnotes application is an intuitive and easy to use system that requires little training to use. An actual test drive of the system is available via a link on the CodoniXnotes website (www.codonixnotes.com) where an actual patient can be charted. Web based training videos give step by step instruction on how to use the application and help screens guide the user through the charting process. Most clinicians are able to chart a patient with only an hour or two of practice.
The CodoniX application has generated well over two million charts and is used in hospitals, urgent care clinics, and physician offices across the country. Anyone involved in providing healthcare to the Katrina evacuees can contact CodoniX at firstname.lastname@example.org for instructions on how to set up their site and access the application.
