Bassett Healthcare Picks McKesson for Unified EHR

September 28, 2007 - Bassett Healthcare, located in Cooperstown, NY, recently selected a wide range of McKesson technology solutions as part of an initiative to help create a single, secure electronic health record (EHR) in its four hospitals and 23 community health centers.

Bassett will deploy a combination of Horizon Clinicals solutions including computerized provider order entry and clinical decision support (CPOE/CDS), bar-code medication administration and a Web-based business intelligence tool. The technology will bring together a wide range of patient information into a single electronic format that may be accessed by authorized staff.

Once the systems are deployed, caregivers at Bassett will reportedly be able to chart care electronically at the bedside and review the most current information and clinical data available. In addition, McKesson’s CPOE/CDS solution will provide evidence-based guidelines at the moment of decision making, while the bar-code scanning solution will prompt nurses to check for the “five rights” of medication administration – right patient, right drug, right dose, right time and right route.

Bassett also will roll out Horizon Lab to automate the entire laboratory process including order entry, specimen management, analytic operations, information distribution, billing and business performance management.
