“There are four pharmacists building in the TEST Pharmacy module for CPOE. All of the affected Pharmacy dictionaries will be moved to LIVE. Also, for the CPOE Project, we did a sync for the Nursing Dictionaries: Intervention, Intervention Set, Intervention Header, Diagnosis, Plan of Care, and Goal.
We had a new withholding in the Payroll Module. We did a Sync for the Payroll Withholding dictionaries, Earning dictionary, and the Table and Table Value dictionaries from LIVE to TEST. We built the new withholding in TEST and did the testing there.
The synchronization of the NMI Value Mapping dictionaries and the HL7 Administrative Site Entry dictionary was the best use of SyncSolve® with SyncIT to date. SyncSolve® saved me at least 40 hours of work.”

“SyncSolve® has been a great help to us! We have always struggled, like so many others, with making sure all TEST and LIVE dictionaries match. SyncSolve® can help with the monitoring and maintenance of the many modules.

“In the past, Meditech allowed the moving of a CDS, and it would ‘overwrite’ the CDS in the destination dictionary. First, it would ask if that is really what you want to do.
Now, if I have a CDS in TEST and LIVE that is ‘waiting’ to be implemented, and a change is required at the last minute, the change does not always get moved. Spelling errors that are found and corrected in TEST have to be made in LIVE manually. Basically, the queries that exist on the CDS in the destination dictionary are not altered by the move. SyncSolve® makes the changes to these queries. Meditech is making SyncSolve® become more of a necessity.”

Jeffery Boomer and other staff at Southern Illinois Healthcare Services installed and began using SyncSolve® in March, 2015. Jeffery admits that using the product has been a “big eye opener in making us aware of all the discrepancies out there. The Pharmacy is very happy that their strings can be moved by the SyncSolve® application rather than having to be rebuilt manually. Those are very complicated. This is really the only product I have seen that takes the background work out of it.”
When asked if the SyncSolve® application was more difficult to use or more work than anticipated, he responded, “It’s not more work than I anticipated, and it’s more comprehensive than I would have given it credit for. I made the assumption that this product would do what other products do, which is have you develop your own scripting and then perform the synchronization. We tried working with another product to help us keep the rings synched. Two of us tried to figure out how to script for Pharmacy and we couldn’t do it.” “This is not a pure scripting tool. It opens up the background and works with the information there. Without a tool such as this, you could easily have a FTE (full time equivalent) involved to keep the rings synched,” Jeffery says.

Cindy Dodds shares, “We began speaking with The HCISolution, Inc. was because they said it could be done. We sent them the specifications for the project and they confirmed it could be done. The sales and programming staff there seemed like they wanted to help us and wanted to partner with us. One of the main reasons we decided to go with The HCISolution is because they said they would give us all the functionality we wanted. We liked the clinical and business functions, and frankly we were surprised when they told us the clinical could be done as well.”
