Clinical Browser Delivers Value at Daughters of Charity Health System
October 1, 2008, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Dick Hutsell, VP and CIO. The health system reestablished itself in 2002 with little capital to make up for many years of under-investing in clinical information technology. A clinical browser was the first investment; providing clinician access to the legacy ancillary applications while allowing the health system to incrementally build a comprehensive clinical system strategy. Budget limitations and implementation issues have delayed the overall strategy, but we continue to add more data to the browser increasing its value as a clinical tool in our quest for improved patient safety and outcomes. This parallel investment in the browser as well as incrementally automating clinical processes lets DCHS deliver more clinical data without waiting until the ultimate solution is in place.
