Emergency department information systems vendor MEDHOST Inc. has introduced executive level decision support software to address inpatient flow and bed management issues.

The OpCenter module is designed to pull data from the Addison, Texas-based vendor's ER system and other information systems to analyze incoming admissions, patient acuity and hospital bed saturation levels. This will enable executives to better use available resources to avoid delays in patient care and improve ER throughput, according to the vendor.

Good Shepherd Medical Center in Longview, Texas, and Tomball (Texas) Regional Medical Center were beta sites. More information is available at medhost.com.
