When it comes to EHR deployments, Catholic Health Partners defines big. Spanning 24 hospitals in Ohio and neighboring states, the Cincinnati-based health system began an enterprise rollout in early 2010 with the ambitious goal of a five-year completion. A key player in the effort is Stephen Beck, M.D., charged with not only promoting adoption of the EHR among physicians and other providers, but guiding the overall strategy for improved clinical outcomes. He leads a team of nine clinical staff who participate in the design, build and deployment of clinical I.T. Currently, half the hospitals in the health system have gone live with the EHR, from Epic, on the inpatient side, while all 1,000 physicians employed by the health system have adopted the technology on the ambulatory side.
