  • CHRISTUS Health bought the hosted analytics and benchmarking tools of Valify to identify savings opportunities within their purchased services spending. Users can build and track savings projects to monitor monthly performance and verify they are getting the expected value by comparing their purchasing patterns with more than 300 other hospital clients of Valify.
  • Pikeville Medical Center has picked Medsphere’s OpenVista electronic health record for the 261-bed regional referral center in Kentucky for use at the hospital and its clinics. The affordability of the EHR enables the hospital to invest in other projects that might have been put on the back burner if another vendor was selected, says Walter May, president and CEO at Pikeville.
  • Neighbors Emergency Center, a freestanding ER network operating in 12 locations across the nation, will implement the emergency department information system of T-System Inc. The EDIS supports nurse/physician charting with emergency-specific content and workflow, clinical decision support, CPOE, electronic prescribing, and reporting and analytics, among other features.
  • Capital Area Pediatrics, with six sites in northern Virginia, bought the healthcare business and clinical analytics software of PrecisionBI. The technology will automate reports that previously required data from multiple information systems to identify gaps in care and ease NCQA recertification, among other uses.
