New York’s St Barnabas Hospital has successfully activated Eclipsys’ Sunrise Ambulatory Care in the pediatric divisions at all three of its ambulatory care centers, in a bid to better manage patient care across outpatient facilities.
Following an on-time, on-budget activation of Eclipsys’ first ever standalone activation of Sunrise Ambulatory Care, St Barnabas Hospital’s clinicians are now using the technology to electronically document care and view patient information in an electronic medical record (EMR).
St Barnabas Hospital’s patient population tends not to develop a relationship with a single healthcare provider, making it imperative that all of their health records are available wherever they present, including a full medical history. With Sunrise Ambulatory Care now live, the hospital’s clinicians have instant access – from their home, office, clinics and other locations across the healthcare organization – to a concise overview of a patient’s previous visits.
This helps clinicians better manage the treatment of the more than 300,000 ambulatory patients who visit St Barnabas Hospital and its associated facilities each year.
The activation went more smoothly than I could have ever imagined, said Dr Harry Shuman, senior vice president at St Barnabas Hospital. With 100% of our physicians using Sunrise Ambulatory Care where it is activated, we will soon be able to begin documenting how the solution’s automated clinical documentation and EMR is helping us improve patient-care, cost, and satisfaction outcomes.
