Memorial Hospital (Belleville, Illinois), a 313-bed acute care hospital, and Medicity (Salt Lake City), a clinical software company, reported that they have completed a contract for the implementation of Medicity's MediTrust interoperability platform.
The platform includes Medicity's ProAccess suite which offers physicians options for electronic access to patient data, including web, fax and dedicated printer. Access of clinical data through handheld devices and integration with office EMRs via the Medicity EMR Gateway are components slated for later phases of the project. Patient information will be accessible from any Internet-enabled location while office staff will also be able manage incoming patient results to their office printers and fax machines. Security features and audit capability protect patient privacy as data moves to users.
Memorial's said its "primary objective" in this project is to create efficiencies for its physicians and their practices. Medicity's Clinical Integration Platform is designed to streamline physician workflow in both the inpatient and outpatient settings. Electronic applications like e-signature, and lab-result trending give physicians new convenience and effectiveness.
