Pennsylvania Hospital has selected Allscripts’ web-based Canopy care management solution to help manage and coordinate care for patients throughout their stay at the hospital.
The 500-bed Philadelphia hospital is a major teaching and clinical research institution and is one of three hospitals owned by the University of Pennsylvania Health System (UPHS). All three UPHS hospitals now utilize Canopy to streamline their care management workflow, manage insurance claims, monitor length of stay and each patient’s health status from the moment they are admitted to when they are discharged.
The web-based, application service provider can be installed quickly with minimal IT support and, once installed, streamlines and automates utilization, case, discharge and quality management processes.
In addition, Canopy Connect provides seamless, secure online communications with payers, physicians and others, enabling hospitals to quickly and easily communicate care management information such as clinical reviews, post-acute placement requests and physician referrals.
Pennsylvania Hospital will interface Canopy with its other information systems, including its Eclipsys computerized physician order entry system and Medview hospital portal, to provide a real-time feed of the essential patient information needed for the care management process.
The hospital’s nearly 900 staff and affiliated physicians will access Canopy data via Medview, enabling a seamless handoff from the hospital to the physician’s office.
