University Hospitals in Cleveland extends Allscripts clinical platform collaboration


Clinical platform

University Hospitals (UH), in Cleveland, Ohio, US, has extended its collaboration with the Allscripts clinical platform until 2024 to improve patient care and augment population health management.

UH will expand its Allscripts Sunrise Clinical Manager platform in nine hospitals, which currently use the platform, to incorporate additional Sunrise modules including surgery, anaesthesia, radiology and mobility, providing a single clinical platform and integrated workflows across all stages of acute patient care.

Additionally, UH will install the Sunrise clinical platform in five of its recently acquired hospitals.

The Sunrise clinical manager platform features an integrated suite of solutions to address emergency, acute, ambulatory, revenue cycle and patient administration.

It is a configurable solution that offers workflows that can be customised to the clinician's requirements to help drive adoption of clinical decision support paving the way to improved outcomes.

"Having a robust, single patient record across the continuum of our acute care will provide our physicians with the information they need to make crucial decisions regarding patient care."

UH chief medical information officer Jeffrey Sunshine said: "Having a robust, single patient record across the continuum of our acute care will provide our physicians with the information they need to make crucial decisions regarding patient care."

Additionally, UH will increase its use of Allscripts dbMotion interoperability and data aggregation solution which will facilitate the connectivity across the Northeast Ohio healthcare community.

The system collates information from separate clinical systems and brings the actionable data to the point of care to facilitate UH's coordination across the care units.

The dbMotion Solution is counted as the key component of Allscripts CareInMotion population health management platform which allows healthcare organisations to attend to health priorities including care coordination, transitions of care and patient engagement.
