February 14, 2008 - Washington, D.C.-based Sibley Memorial Hospital selected the QuadraMed Corp. Computerized Patient Record (QCPR) as part of its initiative to build a longitudinal electronic health record (EHR).
“Our research has shown that QuadraMed’s CPR is a robust, clinician-oriented information system,” said Lorraine Fordham, Sibley’s CIO. “Our nurses and physicians are very pleased with the advanced functionality of the applications, which allow us to easily access important clinical data and customize the solution to accommodate an individual’s workflow needs.”
Sibley concluded the QuadraMed’s enterprise-wide, computer-based patient record system would leverage its previous investment in QuadraMed’s solutions, while also contributing to its goal of vendor consolidation to integrate and streamline data flow. QCPR also met the hospital’s functionality requirements including computerized physician order entry, clinical decision support tools and electronic medication administration. Sibley, which is upgrading from QuadraMed’s Affinity to QCPR, plans to integrate that solution with QuadraMed’s Patient Registration, Revenue Cycle Management and Electronic Document Management applications.
