Open Text Corporation has announced that Sharp Healthcare, a major medical network in San Diego, has successfully deployed Vista Plus Suite, Open Text’s enterprise information management product.
The Sharp network is comprised of about 2,400 physicians and more than 13,000 employees. It serves more than three million people at four acute care hospitals, a women’s healthcare facility, several medical and radiology groups, as well as medical clinics, urgent care centers and nursing facilities.
The Vista Plus Suite implementation has enabled Sharp to retire its legacy systems, reducing costs in maintenance and software licensing fees, system administration and floor space.
With all current and archived information now accessible via a centralized electronic repository, the medical network has been able to streamline business processes and meet compliance regulations for medical documents.
The Vista Plus system combines electronic report management with document print management. Sharp’s previous method of printing and distributing financial and clinical information has been replaced with a more effective method of viewing reports in an electronic format, eliminating storage and retrieval costs associated with paper-based archives.
Sharp is now looking to expand the Vista Plus implementation to the entire organization.
