Beauregard Memorial Hospital in the US state of Lousiana will implement a new electronic health record (EHR) solution to provide automated patient care and improve communication.

Medsphere’s OpenVista EHR solution will improve patient care by providing a portfolio of clinical transformation services tailored according to the specific needs of Beauregard, the company said.

The deployment will also make Beauregard eligible for federal stimulus funds as outlined by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

The 60-bed acute and primary care hospital provides general medical and surgical care for inpatient, outpatient and emergency room patients.
