In less than four weeks, the first phase of iSirona (115 monitors) was implemented into EPIC, the hospital’s existing infrastructure and network, resulting in more robust, timely and accurate patient records.
On August 4th at 4:30am, Cooper University Hospital reached a significant milestone in the journey of maturing the Electronic Health Record (Epic) by taking a giant step toward the goal of a paperless record. I’m pleased to report that all Physician Documentation within the hospital is now being done with the EHR, placing Cooper in the forefront of a paperless record not only within the Delaware Valley, but the entire nation.
(Camden, New Jersey) Cooper University Hospital has launched its new electronic health record system, EPIC, going “live” throughout the hospital on April 30, 2009. Cooper is the first hospital in South Jersey to adopt an electronic health record for all of its patients. This new, health-information system allows physicians to access all of their patients’ electronic medical records whether they are in the main hospital, the emergency department or one of Cooper’s four outpatient offices. It can be used for order entry, results review, prescription printing, discharge instructions, surgery scheduling and documentation, charging, nursing assessments and more.
