Further, University Hospitals will install the Allscripts suite of software in five hospitals it has bought in recent years. UH also will expand use across the delivery system of the vendor’s dbMotion interoperability and data aggregation software.

The goal, says Jeffrey Sunshine, M.D., CMIO, is to have a single patient record across the continuum of acute care. “The continued collaboration between Allscripts and University Hospitals to achieve an integrated Sunrise platform will help improve clinical outcomes for our patients,” he added.
