Camden-Clark Memorial Hospital Selects Eclipsys To Meet Clinical Excellence And Business Transformation Goals
Eclipsys Corporation (NASDAQ: ECLP), The Outcomes Company ®, today announced that Camden-Clark Memorial Hospital (Camden-Clark), a 273-bed community hospital located in Parkersburg, WV, has signed a multimillion dollar agreement to support clinical excellence and business transformation goals. New client Camden-Clark will pursue becoming a top performing hospital by replacing legacy competitor technology with the entire Sunrise Enterprise™ integrated suite of clinical and revenue cycle solutions, along with Eclipsys’ Enterprise Performance Management solution suite. Once complete, the sweeping electronic health record (EHR) and administrative software initiative will serve to improve care team efficiency, clinical decision making, while enhancing administrative processes, patient safety and throughput. The community hospital also will be positioned to achieve the expected “Meaningful Use” requirements of the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA) of 2009. To that end, Camden-Clark will use Eclipsys’ “speed to value” implementation approach to accelerate the activation timeframe to help meet the specified timeline requirements of ARRA in order to maximize stimulus payment opportunities.
Achieving ARRA Guidelines and Improving Outcomes across the Care Continuum
“Our hospital chose Eclipsys because they share our vision to achieve top decile performance in patient quality and satisfaction and are committed to help us achieve this vision,” said Michael A. King, president and chief executive officer of Camden-Clark Memorial Hospital. “This initiative will equip our physicians with real-time access to up-to-date patient information and maximum clinical effectiveness. This investment also will improve each caregiver’s ability to make more informed decisions. The technology tools will enable a more collaborative, streamlined care environment across all our departments and disciplines. Most important, the patients and the community we serve will receive the ultimate benefit of improved healthcare for their lifetime.”
Key Solutions to Meeting Expected ARRA “Meaningful Use”New technology solutions include Eclipsys’ leading computerized physician order entry (CPOE) system and other integrated clinical software solutions that document and automate care at the bedside, critical care units, laboratory, radiology department and the emergency room. An integrated pharmacy system will set the stage for closed loop medication administration processes and expedite more accurate handoffs between clinicians and pharmacist to reduce the chance for medication errors. To further support patient safety, Camden-Clark selected Eclipsys’ Knowledge-Based Medication Administration™ to help ensure the right patient receives the right medication via a handheld device caregivers will use to scan medication bar codes at the bedside. Web portal technology also will give Camden-Clark physicians secure, Internet access to patient information, such as test results and vital signs to enable quicker, more informed patient care decisions, regardless of whether the physician is at the hospital, home or office.
