University Health System In South Texas Selects Allscripts For Community Connectivity

CHICAGO and SAN ANTONIO, March 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  University Health System, the lead trauma center for South Texas, will use Allscripts Community Record™, powered by dbMotion, to share patient data with its facilities and the University of Texas (UT) Health Science Center San Antonio. The Allscripts solution will help provide a single patient record for the many physicians and patients who use both facilities.


Anchored by a 498-bed University Hospital, University Health System is a nationally recognized academic medical center that partners with UT. University Health System, which since 2003 has used Allscripts Sunrise Enterprise™ acute care Electronic Health Record and Sunrise Ambulatory™ EHR in the hospital and for its nearly 700 employed physicians at 24 locations, desired a way to enhance the transitions of care between each of its facilities as well as between its facilities and UT.

"Extending our Allscripts solution will enable us to provide continuity of care for our patients, many whom use both facilities," said Bill Phillips, Vice President and Chief Information Officer at University Health System. "We believe one integrated patient record will save time for providers and patients, as well as reduce duplicate tests."

Allscripts Community Record will enable sharing of patient information between University Health System's Allscripts solutions and the systems deployed at UT San Antonio. The Allscripts solution will aggregate and harmonize data from University Health System's 24 locations and data from UT.

"We're committed to helping our clients enable smooth transitions of care for patients," said Glen Tullman, Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts. "University Health System will soon be able to make patient information available to its physicians, nurses, and caregivers wherever and whenever the patient needs care, which will improve quality, better manage costs, and enhance patient satisfaction. This is the kind of win-win that healthcare has been searching for."
