Riverside Health System Expands MediServe into Rehabilitation Facilities.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- MediServe Information Systems Inc. announced an agreement with the Riverside Health System (Newport News, Va.) to deploy MediLinks(R) Rehabilitation software at the Riverside Rehabilitation Institute (RRI). The Riverside Rehab Institute is a CARF and JCAHO accredited inpatient rehabilitation facility (IRF) licensed for 50 beds. RRI will also be using MediLinks within its Shoreview Outpatient Clinic.

The Riverside Health System has utilized MediLinks in both Respiratory Care and Rehabilitation for over eight years in its flagship medical facility, the Riverside Regional Medical Center. This expansion to RRI will be Riverside's first use of MediLinks in an IRF environment.

"Riverside Rehabilitation Institute anticipates significant results from improved IRF-PAI documentation and scoring across all disciplines resulting in optimized efficiency and maximized revenue from the MediLinks implementation," said Renee K. Rountree, VP/administrator at RRI.

"MediLinks has capabilities that are directly in line with Riverside's goals to increase documentation efficiency and accuracy through automation," said Sherry Maynard, manager of clinical systems for the Riverside Health System. "Previous experience using MediLinks at Riverside Medical Center, a sister hospital of the Riverside Rehabilitation Institute, established confidence in its efficiency and ability to support both the staff at Riverside Rehabilitation Institute as well as Shoreview, Riverside's Outpatient clinic."

MediServe's clinical, mobile, and wireless software solutions & services enable health care organizations to deliver more effective care from their departments and manage more efficient business units. MediLinks is MediServe's point-of-care application that supports clinical information management activities of the health care organization. MediServe clients are increasing the quality of patient care and dramatically reducing operating costs by using MediLinks to plan, manage, and evaluate the cycle of clinical care.
