PatientKeeper physician information system is selected to support Kentucky’s largest healthcare system

PatientKeeper : 26 September, 2007  (New Product)
Norton Healthcare, Kentucky’s largest healthcare system with more than 50 locations in the Louisville region, has selected PatientKeeper as its physician information system.
PatientKeeper will help to deliver an immediate competitive advantage to the organization, while providing the financial ROI and data-sharing infrastructure to support future expansion.

Rated one of the 100 top integrated healthcare delivery systems by Verispan, Norton Healthcare can now provide its 1,900 physicians with a broad range of software products from PatientKeeper that integrate with their existing systems.

“After an extensive review of the marketplace, we selected PatientKeeper for its track record of success and innovation,” said Steve Hester, MD, chief medical information officer at Norton Healthcare. “With PatientKeeper, we are giving our physicians an information system that provides mobile access to information and the tools to enhance Patient safety and care.”

Only PatientKeeper is designed to support a physician throughout the entire day, across all settings of care. PatientKeeper’s applications allow physicians to access their patients’ electronic records, write prescriptions, enter charges for services, document patient encounters, and securely send messages to other caregivers all in a single, integrated environment.

PatientKeeper supports any tablet or PC running a web browser as well as Palm OS and Windows Mobile devices. Physicians at Norton Healthcare will use:

- PatientKeeper Physician Portal to see a comprehensive view of a patient’s entire medical history from any web browser
- PatientKeeper Mobile Clinical Results to access patient information anytime, anywhere with PDAs and Smartphones
- PatientKeeper Charge Capture to quickly and easily record charges for services they deliver at the point of care, in the office, or anywhere in between
- PatientKeeper eSignature to sign clinical notes and orders anytime, anywhere from a handheld PDA, laptop, wireless tablet, or desktop PC
- PatientKeeper Tasks to streamline patient hand-off and sign-out by ensuring that no tasks are missed in the process.

PatientKeeper will also serve as a Meditech Downtime Solution, giving physicians uninterrupted access to patient information even when the Meditech system is down.

“We are proud to welcome Norton Healthcare as a partner and will work closely to address its current and future needs,” said Paul W Brient, president and CEO of PatientKeeper. “We look forward to expanding our partnership to find innovative ways to help Norton Healthcare continue to provide its physicians with the best tools possible.”

PatientKeeper’s physician information system has consistently garnered increased market share because of its innovative, integrated applications, in addition to direct and HL7 integration options for Meditech customers. In fact, since the beginning of the year, more than 80 Meditech hospitals have selected PatientKeeper as their physician information system, including two of Meditech’s largest customers, HCA and Christus Health System, a 42-hospital organization.

PatientKeeper has also integrated to all major hospital information systems and electronic medial records (EMRs), including Cerner, Eclipsys, Epic, GE Healthcare/IDX, McKesson, QuadraMed, Siemens, and others.
