Provena Health selects Misys solutions to enhance patient safety and improve clinical data

Misys Healthcare Systems : 08 January, 2008  (New Product)
Provena Health, a 1,800 physician health system in Illinois and Indiana, USA, is planning to utilise Misys products to improve patient safety at the point of care and maintain more accurate data via instant access to electronic medical records.
To encourage wide-spread adoption among its affiliated physician group, Alliance Health, and to alleviate costs associated with implementation and support, Provena has agreed to host Misys EMR and Misys Tiger through Provena Saint Joseph Medical Center in Joliet, Illinois, USA. As a complement to the clinical capabilities of Misys EMR for physician practices, Provena Health has also purchased Misys Homecare, which will be used among its network of home health nurses.

“Automating and deploying clinical and Practice management solutions is an important first step in connecting healthcare communities, reducing costs and improving patient care,” said R L (Vern) Davenport, executive vice president and general manager of Misys Healthcare Systems. “Provena and Alliance Health caregivers are demonstrating a real commitment to improving healthcare in their region and we are very pleased to be their partner of choice.”

Provena Health and affiliated Alliance Health physicians and medical executives will use Misys EMR to improve the care process by having access to patient data at their finger tips, across all care settings. Misys EMR, which integrates with Misys Payerpath capabilities for billing and claims transactions, will allow Southwestern Chicago area physicians to more accurately and efficiently document care delivery and results, a key component of pay for performance initiatives.

“Having more than 20 years experience using Misys clinical tools, I am confident that Misys EMR will provide the platform that our physicians need to improve clinical and practice workflows for optimal patient care,” said Lon H McPherson, MD, chief medical officer, Provena Saint Joseph Medical Center. “Provena and Alliance Health selected Misys EMR for its comprehensive functionality and seamless integration with Practice management and billing solutions in a user-friendly format. Additionally, several of our affiliated physicians already use Misys within their own practices and have experienced the benefits first hand.”
