Hartford Health Care Corporation Hartford, Conn. University of Connecticut
"We are very excited about being an early adopter of the integration between the Allscripts acute and ambulatory applications, a significant element of our mission of providing true continuity of care across our network of hospitals and physician groups," said Stephan D. O’Neill, Vice President of Information Systems for HHCC, which includes 1,141 licensed beds, 150 employed physicians, 11,000 employees and more than 165,000 annual emergency department visits. "In line with our expectations, the project is on schedule. The clear benefit is that this will ensure that our providers have the information they need to deliver the safest and best patient care across multiple venues of care."
With the power of one network, one platform and one patient record, HHCC’s clinicians in the physician’s office, Emergency Department and hospital will have immediate access to identical, comprehensive records on a patient who, for example, visits his or her local physician, then visits the ER and is ultimately admitted to the hospital. Shared, integrated patient information empowers providers to make safer, more informed care decisions, work as a more efficient team to coordinate care, and deliver superior outcomes.
