DSS, Inc. Implementing cyberREN Renal Patient Care Management System at VA Puget Sound Health Care System
In 2017, DSS was awarded the Dialysis Electronic Medical Record Software and Maintenance Electronic Health Record (EHR) Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract by the Veterans Health Administration (VHA).
As part of this IDIQ, the company will now be implementing the cyberREN Renal Patient Care Management System, a comprehensive EMR and clinical data analysis and reporting system for Nephrology, at the VA Puget Sound Health Care System in Seattle, Washington.
Through this implementation, the VA Puget Sound Health Care System will be able to leverage a uniform mechanism to capture and report dialysis data. The facility will also have access to the necessary software for electronic reporting to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) mandated web-based dialysis quality collection system.
The cyberREN Renal Patient Care Management System, developed by Cybernius Medical Ltd. (CML), a DSS teaming partner on this contract, is integrated with VistA using the DSS integration toolkit and overall Integration Framework.
With two major modules for Hemodialysis and Chronic Kidney Disease – and other modules available – the solution will enable providers to deliver the best possible renal care for Veterans.
This mature dialysis EMR has been installed in the commercial market since 1996, and is currently being deployed within the VHA at thirteen facilities.
