Noarlunga Hospital Activates Allscripts Electronic Health Record System

Stocks in this article: MDRX

CHICAGO, Aug. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Noarlunga Hospital has implemented the Allscripts (NASDAQ: MDRX) Sunrise Clinical Manager (SCM) Electronic Health Record (EHR) system. The activation kicked off on Sunday, August 25 th and involved more than 100 clinical and administrative staff.

Sunrise Clinical Manager is an integrated single platform EHR and patient financial accounting system. The new system will help Noarlunga's physicians and clinicians to electronically access patient information at the bedside and throughout the hospital, supporting continuity of care for its patients.

When implementation is complete, SCM, SA Health's Enterprise Patient Administration System (EPAS), will be operational in all metropolitan hospitals, GP Plus Health Care Centres, GP Plus Super Clinics, SAAS headquarters and Mount Gambier and Port Augusta Hospitals. The EPAS will replace a number of incompatible, costly and outdated patient administration systems and consolidate them into a single, state-wide system.

"For the first time, our physicians and clinicians will have access to information in one system that will allow them to review critical patient information when and where it's needed," said Hon. Jack Snelling, Minister for Health and Ageing, South Australia.

The launch of the new EPAS system at the Noarlunga Hospital is the culmination of a comprehensive staff engagement, design and implementation process involving more than 350 clinical and administrative staff over the past 18 months.

"I am pleased with the activation at Noarlunga Hospital and the joint effort of the hospital's physicians, clinicians, information system department and administrative staff and the Allscripts team," said Paul M. Black, President and Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts. "Our Open solution will enable Noarlunga and the SA Health system to extend the power of Sunrise and allow them to scale for future innovation. We are committed to helping SA Health provide the best care for all of its citizens."
