Forerun Inc. is a rapidly emerging leader in Emergency Department workflow and supporting information system technology. The Forerun-EDTM provides the emergency room clinician with a state-of-the-art patient clinical viewer, physician and nurse documentation, and a fully equipped discharge module including multi-language patient instructions, medication reconciliation, and prescription writing. Of course, Forerun also provides an electronic tracking board to replace the all-too-common ED grease board
As Forerun was completing its first successful deployment of the Forerun-ED in 2007, the company engaged J2 to perform code analysis and troubleshooting on the various Ensemble interfaces that integrate the Forerun-ED to the hospital’s ADT, laboratory, radiology, and pharmaceutical information systems. In the years since that initial engagement, Forerun has continued to rely on J2 to provide integration services for over a dozen different customer sites. J2’s work has helped Forerun establish a predictable, low-cost model for bringing new sites live. J2 has also played a role in enhancing and extending the capabilities of the Forerun-ED application itself, most notably an online dictation / transcription feature for clinicians.
