T-System, a provider of paper and electronic systems, is licensing its clinical terminology to Prognosis Health Information Systems (HIS).

T-System content encompasses six primary elements including design and presentation; clinical terminology; clinical decision support rules; order sets; the clinical phrase builder; and encoding support for ICD and CPT codes.

As part of the agreement, Prognosis has gained rights to incorporate into its ChartAccess Comprehensive EHR the more than 200,000 T-System chief complaint-based emergency department clinical phrases.

Under the contract, T-System will provide updates, both routine and as-needed, to its clinical terminology to ensure continued regulatory compliance and the use of industry best practices involving medical safety and provider efficiency.

Prognosis HIS president and chief executive officer Ramsey Evans said they are pleased to provide T-System’s clinical terminology to the company’s rural and critical access hospital clients because it is the most comprehensive and refined emergency medicine terminology available.

"This knowledge will strengthen our solution because it supports the ED care process with emergency medicine content, and using market leading content — rather than building it from the ground up — will help us expand capabilities faster to better meet the needs of our target market," Evans said.
