Centura Health is the largest healthcare network in Colorado. Dedicated to delivering advanced care to more than a half million people, Centura strives for the highest quality and continuous innovation. To accomplish this, the organization needed to address its transformation and connectivity efforts across patient, people, processes and technologies — the essential ingredients when optimizing clinical performance.
Centura understands that by mastering clinical image data across its care network it will enable clinical improvements, optimize electronic medical record (EMR) investments and drive the organization’s interoperability strategy. The key requirements necessary for Centura to adequately consider a VNA solution:
- A roadmap for the single/unified environment to store and disseminate image data while addressing the legacy individual cardiology systems currently in operation at the 13 hospital locations
- Recommendations to enhance interoperability and operational efficiencies of imaging beyond radiology and cardiology for referring physicians across all enterprise departments
- Best Practices to harness and streamline clinical image data to improve clinical decision support and clinical cost-effectiveness
The roadmap and recommendations will allow Centura to unify cardiology and other clinical systems to the overarching IT strategy of connectivity and interoperability. In addition, the organization is developing a Cardiovascular Information System (CVIS) initiative, to consolidate the multiple siloed systems supporting the cardiology services lines. Ultimately, Centura is building a healthcare architecture for the future financial and operational health of the organization. With the help of Ascendian’s expertise, Centura is equipped with the required information that will ensure the best possible solution is delivered.
