Holy Cross Hospital utilises Allscripts EHR to integrate 85 South Florida physicians

AllscriptsMisys Healthcare Solutions : 27 February, 2008  (New Product)
Holy Cross Hospital has implemented the Allscripts Electronic Health Record to communicate and connect its 85 Medical Group physicians in 28 South Florida offices.
The Allscripts solution will automate everyday clinical tasks for Holy Cross's physicians, while electronically connecting the group to South Florida's premier healthcare provider, Holy Cross Hospital, a 571-bed, non- profit Catholic hospital.

Holy Cross Medical Group is a fully-owned subsidiary of Holy Cross Hospital. Holy Cross's multi-specialty physicians will use Allscripts to access real-time test results and other clinical data on their patients in Holy Cross Hospital by integrating with the hospital's Meditech inpatient system.

'This initiative with Allscripts will reinforce our 'One Patient - One Chart' philosophy for our medical group and our patients. We feel certain we can deliver higher quality and safer care to our patients,' said Patrick Taylor, MD, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Holy Cross Hospital.

The Electronic Health Record delivers instant access to patient information anywhere at anytime, whether providers are in the clinic, at the hospital, or on-call at home. The solution provides physicians with robust tools for documentation and orders, preloaded connections to a wide range of medical devices, and seamless support for pay-for-performance and quality initiatives.

To support high quality patient care, Allscripts also provides ready-to-use templates that deliver best practice guidelines for more than 1,200 different clinical situations and automated health management plans that are customised for each patient.

'Large healthcare organizations can't afford to rely on paper as the primary means of storing and transmitting clinical information when most patients are seen in both the hospital and outpatient settings,' said Glen Tullman, chief executive officer of Allscripts. 'By implementing our Electronic Health Record, Holy Cross Medical Group is providing their physicians with the information they need and taking the next step in healthcare quality and patient safety.'

Holy Cross selected Allscripts after a review of the leading electronic health records involving numerous site visits. 'We believe Allscripts is a strong company that has the technology, and the will to support our continued growth,' said Cristina Mata, MD, assistant medical director. 'After speaking with Allscripts client physicians and comparing the technology, we believe this is the leading-edge electronic health record with very strong support, and the most user friendly system you can find.'
