St. Joseph’s picks Cerner for unified health, wellness records

Here is Health Data Management’s weekly roundup of health information technology contracts and implementations.

  • St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center, serving parts of New Jersey, will implement the Cerner Millennium electronic health record, revenue cycle management software and the vendor’s HealtheIntent population health management product across its acute, long-term care and ambulatory facilities. HealtheIntent will enable establishment of a longitudinal record with a unified view of a patient’s health and care experiences.
  • McPherson Hospital in Kansas, a 49-bed acute care facility, is getting the Thrive electronic health records system from CPSI as well as TruBridge revenue cycle management software. The ability to quickly integrate patient and business office records for the hospital and its clinic was a major factor in the selection, according to Clinton Terry, director of information systems.

The organization considered to other vendors, determining that one did not have adequate technology and the other had issues doing granular data recovery, says Carl Seabold, director of information technology.
  • Estes Park Medical Center, a critical access hospital near Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado, is live on high-resolution portal and room-based digital radiography systems from Carestream Health. The hospital is an existing customer of the vendor, already using its Vue PACS and Vue Archive products. Estes Park treats patients for conditions common in mountain regions such as altitude sickness, hiking accidents, lightning strikes, heart attacks and pulmonary embolisms.
  • Advanced Diagnostic Imaging Center in Orangeburg, S.C., is live with a radiology information system, PACS and speech recognition software from eRAD, and will add the vendor’s patient and physician portals before summer. The applications are cloud-hosted, negating the need for multiple logins, and the practice wanted one call number for support, says Lewis Warren, manager at ADIC.
