Bethesda selects Sunrise Critical Care solution to enhance patient care

Eclipsys : 04 June, 2007  (New Product)
Eclipsys' Sunrise Critical Care solution has been selected by Bethesda Memorial Hospital, Boynton Beach of Florida, USA, to help improve patient-care outcomes.
Sunrise Critical Care will help provide clinicians and other key staff with immediate and simultaneous access to patient information and advanced documentation, order entry, and content to support care for patients in the hospital's critical care units.

Sunrise Critical Care also provides a comprehensive audit trail for released documents, which Bethesda Memorial Hospital will use to support its quality initiatives and help ensure regulatory compliance.

With Sunrise Critical Care, Bethesda Memorial Hospital's clinicians will be able to improve their ability to monitor and assess the condition of patients during what is called the 'window of opportunity' - the six to eight hours of time after admission when rapid therapeutic intervention can have the most- positive impact on a patient's condition.

In real time, Sunrise Critical Care continuously cross-checks incoming test results and information from patient-monitoring devices against the patient's age, condition, gender, treatment history and evidence-based standards of care to quickly alert clinicians to potentially dangerous downward trends in a patient's health.

'We selected Sunrise Critical Care over the competition because it was built to handle the specific needs of a critical care department and has a very user-friendly interface', stated Raina O'Connor, Bethesda Memorial Hospital's Director of Critical Care.

'The solution will give our physicians a clear and concise view of patient information at the touch of a button, which we anticipate will lead to increased Patient safety and improved outcomes'.

Recently, Bethesda Memorial Hospital enacted organization wide quality initiatives designed for each unit to achieve a ranking in the top 10 percent for care delivery.

O'Connor said that the selection of Sunrise Critical Care is an important foundation for the critical-care units to reach this milestone and help the department receive the Beacon Award for Critical Care Excellence.
O'Connor noted, 'Eclipsys' track record of consistently achieving industry leading levels of solution adoption in high-acuity care settings was another important factor in our selection of Sunrise Critical Care'.
'For the solution to help us improve patient-care outcomes, it was important for us to select a vendor with a proven implementation methodology for getting physicians and other key staff to use the solution once it's activated'.

Sunrise Critical Care's electronic Medical record is easily accessed by multiple users simultaneously, enabling a variety of clinicians to proceed with treatment rather than waiting on the availability of a single paper record.

Additionally, by automating so many paper-intensive processes, Sunrise Critical Care delivers not only improved care quality and operational efficiencies but also reduced supplies and storage costs.

'We empower each department's staff to determine which clinical information solution best works for them', said Geralyn Lunsford, Bethesda Memorial's vice president of Patient Services and Chief Nursing Officer.

'This requires tremendous coordination between our Information Systems (IS) and Patient Services departments, and we feel it will deliver the best results for our organization'.

'Eclipsys Sunrise Critical Care met both of these requirements by demonstrating it can deliver real value for a critical care unit as well as seamlessly integrate with other clinical information solutions'.

Sunrise Critical Care's seamless integration is due to its open XA architecture and its ObjectsPlus/XA technology.

They provide an application-development model for achieving high levels of interoperability among disparate systems, enabling hospital IS staff to easily integrate Sunrise Critical Care with their other clinical information solutions.

This helps ensure consistent, real-time access to data for those who need it, and smooth handoffs of patient care and information across systems, caregivers, shifts, departments and even facilities.

'Eclipsys continues to win new customers due to our solutions' proven ability to deliver improved patient-care outcomes in high-acuity care environments, and our track record of delivering on-time, on-budget implementations with superior rates of clinician adoption', said Jay Deady, Eclipsys executive vice president, Client Solutions.

'This new contract win against our major competitors also demonstrates that the flexibility of our XA architecture makes our clinical information solutions attractive to healthcare organizations taking a best-of-breed approach to automate their high-acuity clinical areas'.
