Estes Park Medical Center Selects Summit Healthcare to Integrate Meditech HCIS and MEDHOST EDIS System

Braintree, Mass. (PRWEB) December 11, 2013

Estes Park Medical Center (EPMC) has selected Summit Healthcare as their vendor partner to streamline integration between their Meditech HCIS and MEDHOST EDIS. EPMC is a 25-bed critical-access acute-care hospital located in Estes Park, Colorado.

Health information technology has dramatically improved the quality of healthcare delivery, increased patient safety, and decreased medical errors. However, to accomplish these improvements, organizations must find the strongest system integration possible. Estes Park Medical Center uses Meditech 6.0 as their main hospital information system (HCIS) and is implementing MEDHOST as their emergency department information system (EDIS), with a planned go-live of March 4, 2014. The different systems pose unique challenges related to the integration of emergency department data with the hospital’s electronic medical record. Information such as orders, results, and medications administered must be integrated between the HCIS and the EDIS to give clinicians rapid access to critical patient data.

EPMC looked to Summit Healthcare as an integration leader and for Summit’s experience with Meditech and MEDHOST to handle this unique integration. Leveraging the Summit Interoperability technology platform and expertise, Summit Healthcare will be tasked with ensuring the integration is seamless between the systems. The Summit EDIS integration solution goes well beyond simply establishing and managing EDIS integration projects by providing increased efficiencies, better patient outcomes, and helping to create a complete electronic medical record.

The integration process between the systems will be near real-time including the ability to process critical messages between the systems within one minute of being received. The first focus will be to integrate Laboratory results, Radiology reports, and in/outbound ADT feeds.

“As we embark on integrating our Meditech HCIS with our MEDHOST EDIS, working with Summit Healthcare is the clear solution with their strong technology offering and unique expertise. We look forward to working toward a successful live date,” said Gary Hall, Chief Information Officer, Estes Park Medical Center.

“As EPMC faces the challenge of integrating their Meditech HCIS with their MEDHOST EDIS, Summit Healthcare is eager to step up to the challenge of this unique project,” said Ted Rossi, CEO, Summit Healthcare. “This tighter level of integration will allow for better patient care and safety which are crucial factors for all hospitals today. Summit Healthcare is committed to helping organizations continue to march forward in supporting all levels of integration.”
