Nashville, TN-based Ardent Health Services has selected Epic as its strategic partner for a single, integrated EHR across all of its hospitals and clinics. The move will replace 80 information systems currently in use across all facilities in an effort to streamline its registration, billing, clinical applications, ehealth and population health initiatives.
In doing so, Epic’s EHR will provide caregivers with more time at the bedside to offer consistent, high quality health services and a better patient experience for the patients they serve. Patients will be able to use Epic’s MyChart software to message doctors, attend e-visits, complete questionnaires, schedule appointments, manage their medications and be more involved in managing their health.
“This investment is a significant step in our journey to deliver high-quality clinical care and exceptional customer service more efficiently,” said David T. Vandewater, president and CEO of Ardent Health Services in the announcement. “With Epic, we will improve our clinical quality and patient outcomes. We will enhance our work environments for our physicians, nurses and staff, and we will provide our patients and their families with increased convenience through one medical record and a single bill for all of our services.”Read More On hitconsultant.net
