Oklahoma Specialty Hospital Selects the Evident Thrive EHR System

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 2 Mag 2019

Evident LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of CPSI (NASDAQ: CPSI) and a leading provider of electronic health record (EHR) systems and services, announced today that Oklahoma Spine Hospital, a specialty surgical hospital located in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, has selected the cloud-hosted Thrive EHR solution to replace their existing system through a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) payment model. They are expected to be live on Thrive by the fourth quarter of 2019.Oklahoma Spine Hospital started an EHR selection process when they were informed that their current vendor’s EHR was not certified to meet the requirements of the Promoting Interoperability Program. In order to meet their goal of attesting to CMS for the 2019 reporting period, they knew they had to explore other options. Once the search began, the team from Oklahoma Spine Hospital realized quickly that Evident was a good fit for them. The Evident Thrive solution will provide Oklahoma Spine Hospital with a level of external and internal interoperability they do not have, allowing providers to focus more on the patient and less on paperwork. Additionally, Evident’s proven track record with Oklahoma Spine Hospital’s sister facility, Black Hills Surgical Hospital, gave credibility to the Thrive EHR solution and the team from Evident.“While finding a certified EHR that would allow us to meet the 2019 reporting year requirements for the Promoting Interoperability Program instigated our search, we are gaining much more than that with Evident,” said Gary McCool, technology director of Oklahoma Spine Hospital. “We believe the functionality of the Thrive EHR will also lead to higher levels of patient satisfaction.” McCool added, “The deciding factor for us was being able to see the success that a similar specialty hospital is experiencing using Thrive. We are very happy with our decision and look forward to partnering with Evident for a long time to come.”

Make Hospital Facilities More Efficient, Productive, and Sustainable

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 7 aprile 2018

A new report from Navigant Research examines the pressures healthcare organizations face, and how the adoption of intelligent building solutions can increase efficiencies and patient satisfaction. Demands for improved economic performance are pushing healthcare organizations to look for new ways to create profit and reduce costs while also increasing the quality of patient care. Intelligent building solutions can help accomplish these goals through the use of connected devices, intelligent analytics, and enterprise platforms. Click to tweet: According to a new report from @NavigantRSRCH, integrating disparate systems with intelligent building solutions can make hospital facilities more efficient, productive, and sustainable.“Integration in hospitals refers to the integration of various systems, such as building automation systems, real-time location systems (RTLSs), nurse call, and admission, discharge, and transfer (ADT) systems,” says Christina Jung, research analyst with Navigant Research. “When these systems communicate, hospitals can both reduce operating costs and deliver better patient care.” Navigant Research recommends that hospitals integrate business planning and technology strategies to capture the value of their intelligent building solutions, while also leveraging available data to gain competitive advantages against emerging players in other industries. Meanwhile, according to the report, vendors should promote the advantages of intelligent building solutions beyond energy and operational efficiency, such as enhanced occupant comfort, improved space utilization, and more.The report, Intelligent Building Solutions Bring Competition, Profitability, and Benefits to the Healthcare Industry, examines the opportunities presented by a more value-based, efficient practice of medicine. The study looks at the pressures healthcare organizations face and the subsequent adoption of intelligent building solutions. It also discusses how these solutions will increase energy efficiency and patient satisfaction by integrating building and clinical systems. Recommendations are provided on how to communicate the advantages of intelligent building solutions and how best to benefit from these solutions. An Executive Summary of the report is available for free download on the Navigant Research website.

Phoenix Health Systems Ranked First by Black Book Research for Comprehensive Hospital IT Outsourcing

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 4 ottobre 2017

Phoenix Health Systems, the leading independent provider of hospital IT outsourcing and consulting services, has been recognized by market and public opinion research firm Black Book Research as first among the top 20 non-EHR centric hospital IT outsourcing companies. From a field of 68 qualified IT outsourcing organizations, Phoenix Health is one of only seven vendors who were recognized for “exceeding expectations” on all 18 Black Book key performance indicators. For Black Book’s 2017 survey, the company polled 1,587 users of IT outsourcing solutions, including 807 hospital CIOs and IT leaders, as well as 89 CFOs, to assess their confidence in partnering with outside IT support contractors and determine which partners they found the most professional and reliable.
“We are honored and humbled to be recognized by such a prestigious organization, especially given Black Book’s reputation for impartiality and data-driven assessment,” said Ronald L. Gue, Ph.D., president of Phoenix Health. “As Black Book says, engaging firms with insufficient healthcare experience or knowledge of industry issues is risky, which is why our fundamental concern is eliminating risk for our clients. At their core, the Black Book rankings are recognition of how professional and knowledgeable the Phoenix Health team is, and I’m grateful every day for how good they are. This confirmation that our clients also recognize our hard work is especially satisfying and inspiring.” Recognizing that “Movement toward patient-centric and value-based approaches is fueling the growth of infrastructure outsourcing,” the Black Book survey noted that shifts among healthcare organizations to ‘as-a-service’ infrastructure models has left many less than satisfied with their outsourcing experience. The strongest contributor to dissatisfaction came from the 77 percent of organizations that used vendors with limited experience in healthcare IT outsourcing.This dip in satisfaction has not, however, reduced outsourcing; around 82 percent of hospitals—“a record number,” per Black Book—have either signed IT outsourcing contracts since mid-2016 or are currently considering an outsourcing vendor, illustrating the current complexity of the healthcare IT marketplace and the need for proven, seasoned partners.Black Book also says that 83 percent of providers with more than 100 beds have made complex IT outsourcing a priority this year, and 34 percent plan to increase IT outsourcing over the next two years; in both cases, return on investment and immediate access to trained staff and needed technology are the primary motivators.

African Partnerships for Patient Safety (APPS) has launched the second wave of Europe-to-Africa hospital partnerships to improve patient safety in five countries. APPS proposes a unique partnership model translating policy into action to improve patient safety in hospitals in the African region. Hospitals in Africa are teamed up with counterparts in Europe to allow the sharing of tools, processes and learning based on three core objectives: partnership strength, hospital patient safety improvements, and patient safety spread. Building on the success of the “first wave” of partnerships established by APPS in 2009, new partnerships between hospitals in Africa and the UK are being launched in a “second wave”. Representatives of the five partnerships between UK and African hospitals (in Ghana, Mozambique, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Zambia) met at WHO Headquarters this week to kick off their new partnerships and to establish work plans to improve patient safety in their respective hospitals and further afield. http://www.facebook.com/WorldHealthOrganization?v=wall

Serata in favore della vita

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 20 dicembre 2010

Roma 21 dicembre p.v. alle ore 21:OO presso la discoteca Heaven a, su iniziativa dell’associazione “Il Capitale Umano” si terrà una serata  evento a sostegno della vita. Lo dice in una nota il Segretario Provinciale della Uil Fpl di Roma Paolo Dominici.  Nel corso della stessa i partecipanti, attraverso il libero versamento di una quota di partecipazione, potranno degustare prodotti della tradizione enogastronomica laziale. L’intero incasso verrà devoluto alla Associazione ONLUS  “Piccoli guerrieri della home in hospital” presso l’Ospedale G.B. Grassi di Ostia.  Il progetto di assistenza presso l’Ospedale G.B. Grassi di Ostia accoglie solo 4 bambini ed è un progetto pilota che va avanti tra innumerevoli difficoltà burocratiche. Noi vorremmo – continua il segretario provinciale della Uil Fpl di Roma – che il progetto potesse essere allargato ad ogni nosocomio di Roma e della provincia e che le Istituzioni si facessero carico dell’assistenza in regime di ricovero  garantendo l’accoglienza nelle strutture sanitarie competenti di questi sfortunati bambini. Questo consentirebbe tra l’altro, il recupero sociale e professionale dei nuclei famigliari che, in questa situazione, sono inevitabilmente posti in una condizione di esclusione dalla vita sociale, lavorativa e professionale.
Parteciperà alla serata il Presidente dell’associazione “Piccoli guerrieri della home in hospital” sig. Valter Mazza che porterà la propria diretta testimonianza, come genitore di uno dei tanti bambini sfortunati. La UIL FPL di Roma parteciperà alla serata attraverso amici ed iscritti, rappresentanti di base e  Segreteria romana. Sarà una occasione, conclude Dominici, per pensare e  riflettere tutti insieme, alle azioni da adottare per creare  un sistema di welfare che non tagli fuori sempre e puntualmente i piu’ deboli. (Paolo Dominici)

The creation of a University Hospital Institute

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 23 Mag 2010

Nantes. With support from Nantes Métropole urban council and the Pays de la Loire Regional Council, Nantes University Hospital and the University of Nantes have joined forces to push for the creation of a University Hospital Institute (Institut Hospitalo-Universitaire, IHU) provisionally entitled the “European Centre for Transplantation Sciences and Immunotherapy”. The French government is to set up a total of 5 IHUs, following a rigorous tendering process. The institutes will be funded from the proceeds of the country’s National Bond Scheme. Over the last 10 years, the city of Nantes’ healthcare cluster has forged a reputation as one of the best in France. It is gaining an international reputation in many fields (including immunology, transplantation, oncology, cardiology, gastroenterology, human nutrition, cell & gene therapy and biomaterials). The cluster constitutes a key element in the Pays de la Loire region’s economic attractiveness and is a driving force for regional research efforts. Its success is based on close collaboration between Nantes University Hospital, the INSERM national medical research institute, the University of Nantes, other research providers and biotech companies, with the support of the local authorities and the French State. The Nantes-based IHU project focuses on the role of patient-centred translational research and medical care in understanding and curing disease. The IHU project is being led by Professor Jean-Paul Soulillou (one of the field’s leading physicians and researchers) and currently involves over 1100 staff (including almost 200 researchers- one of the French government’s criteria for the future IHUs). It is set to be Europe’s leading programme in the high-priority field of transplantation science.

Un italiano leader dei trapianti di fegato in uk

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 10 luglio 2009

New York. “Sono stato il primo chirurgo a introdurre in Inghilterra il trapianto di fegato da donatore ‘a cuore fermo’ e con la nostra equipé abbiamo raggiunto l’obiettivo, che ci siamo posti nel 2002, di eseguire il 10% degli interventi con questa procedura. Un risultato importante per far fronte alla scarsità dei donatori nel Regno Unito, e che in Italia non è al momento realizzabile”. Paolo Muiesan, 48 anni, chirurgo bresciano esperto di trapianti di fegato, è uno dei cervelli emigrati all’estero 17 anni fa. Ha lavorato come “Consultant Surgeon in Hepato-Biliary Surgery and Transplantation” prima al King’s College Hospital di Londra e poi al Queen Elizabeth Hospital di Birmingham (UK), entrambi centri prestigiosi, ai primi posti per numero di trapianti in Europa. Ha eseguito più di 550 trapianti di fegato ed oltre 100 pubblicazioni sulle più prestigiose riviste scientifiche internazionali portano la sua firma. A New York, a dimostrazione dell’eccellenza raggiunta dalle sue ricerche, sarà invitato a tenere una lettura magistrale durante il Congresso della ILTS (International Liver Transplantation Society), la più importante società scientifica al mondo dei trapianti di fegato. “Attualmente – spiega il prof. Muiesan – il maggior numero dei prelievi viene eseguito da donatore deceduto per morte cerebrale. Ma la penuria degli organi disponibili ha portato a implementare anche quelli da donatore per morte cardiaca, una procedura più rischiosa in cui gli organi da espiantare ‘soffrono’ maggiormente perché la circolazione del sangue si interrompe prima rispetto ai casi di morte cerebrale. Nel nostro centro abbiamo ottenuto risultati nei trapianti da donatore ‘a cuore fermo’ comparabili a quelli raggiunti con i donatori deceduti per morte cerebrale”. “Abbiamo messo a punto una tecnica particolare per il prelievo – continua il prof. Muiesan -, con una attenta selezione degli organi migliori, in grado di funzionare dopo il trapianto. E le nostre percentuali di successo sono più alte di quelle riportate negli Stati Uniti”. Il monito però è quello di non sovvertire il sistema. “La preferenza va sempre data ai casi di morte cerebrale perché garantiscono organi di alta qualità e solo in situazioni precise si può passare alla donazione ‘a cuore fermo’”. Nostalgia del nostro Paese? “Certo e molta – conclude Muiesan – anche perché la mia famiglia vive in Italia, però in questo momento all’estero si continua a lavorare bene e ci sono opportunità. Io non sono un caso isolato, e soprattutto nel mio campo, ci sono bravissimi chirurghi italiani in tutto il mondo che danno risalto al nostro Paese”.
