As hospitals in Florida, Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina prepare for the landfall of Hurricane Michael, T-System, Inc. is making its T Sheets episodic care documentation solution available free of charge to all hospitals and freestanding emergency departments in Florida, Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina. All hospitals, whether T-System clients or not, can access the T Sheets by contacting T-System at [email protected].
The Disaster Relief T Sheets are available as a pack containing templates for adult medicine, adult trauma, pediatric medicine and trauma, and nursing documentation. The paper-based solution will help hospitals in the hardest hit areas with limited resources to continue providing care to community residents. By giving the solution to affected hospitals, healthcare organizations are better able to send physicians and nurses to help in hurricane-impacted areas.
As another hurricane nears landfall, hospitals and providers in the affected areas are preparing for the possible disruption of healthcare, so they can continue to provide high-quality care, possibly without electricity or internet connectivity. By delivering our paper solution at no cost, we are helping provide a basic need to hospitals, said Bob Wilhelm, president and CEO of T-System. The coming days will likely present caregivers with difficult circumstances, as they work to focus on patient care while also being concerned about their own family. We will continue to offer assistance in the aftermath of the storm, and our thoughts and prayers will be with everyone affected in the Gulf Coast region.
Hospitals that use the T-System EVTM emergency department information system (EDIS) automatically receive T Sheets as a backup for disaster relief and unexpected health crises.
