To complete the project, NTT DATA partnered with EPOWERdoc, an industry leader in Emergency Department documentation solutions. Montgomery County Memorial Hospital can now expect greater flexibility and seamless coordination among disparate Information Sources and the NTT DATA Optimum™ solutions currently installed in the hospital.
