Opelousas General Health System Expands Interlace Health Solutions with Addition of Electronic Informed Consent at the Bedside and ED
Opelousas General Health System (OGHS) is a 197-bed full service, smoke-free, medical center as complete and as inclusive as any referral hospital in the state of Louisiana. The main campus, six-story facility is located in St. Landry Parish which boasts a population of 91,528.
The current Interlace Health customer will be implementing Interlace Health’s Electronic Informed Consent Solution at the bedside in acute and the ED.
Informed Consent by Interlace Health does away with paper, clipboards, scanners – and even electronic signature devices. Staff can quickly and easily select the correct form within the patient’s EHR, so it’s always accurate. Content can be standardized, and fields marked as required, reducing risk and ensuring compliance. The patient reads and signs the form on a tablet or computer, at the bedside or office.
Staff then self-signs the form and date-time stamps are automatically applied. The signed consent is archived into the EHR – making documentation instantly visible to the care team.
