DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 11, 2018--As hospitals prepare for the landfall of Hurricane Florence, T-System, Inc. is making its T Sheets® episodic care documentation solution available free of charge to all hospitals and freestanding emergency departments in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Maryland. All hospitals, whether T-System clients or not, can access the T Sheets by contacting T-System at info@tsystem.com.

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.

“While we certainly hope for the best outcome for everyone in the path of the storm, it is likely that essential services, such as healthcare, will be disrupted in some areas. Hospitals and providers may be challenged to continue to deliver high-quality care while lacking essential resources such as electricity and internet connectivity,” said Dr. Robert Hitchcock, General Manager of Documentation for T-System. “Caregivers will face frightening and difficult circumstances in the upcoming days, especially as they continue to focus on patient care while also being concerned about their own friends and family. We will continue to offer assistance in the aftermath of the storm, and our thoughts and prayers will be with everyone affected.”

Hospitals that use the T-System EV TM emergency department information system (EDIS) automatically receive T Sheets as a backup for disaster relief and unexpected health crises.
