Elsevier CDS solutions will be installed in 25 Texas hospitals within CHRISTUS Health, which is composed of more than 40 hospitals, inpatient and long-term care facilities, as well as multiple clinics, physician offices and healthcare services.
"CHRISTUS Health has been on its Journey to Excellence since 2000, and adoption of multiple Elsevier CDS solutions will enable progress in each of our directions of excellence: clinical quality, service delivery, business literacy and community value," said Thomas Royer, M.D., President and CEO of CHRISTUS Health. "CHRISTUS Health's ability to continue our Journey means providing our physicians, nurses, pharmacists and associates with advanced clinical decision support tools to deliver absolute excellence."
Other factors influencing CHRISTUS' decision to adopt multiple Elsevier solutions included its need to consolidate resources, save on costs, integrate solutions and allow physicians, nurses and pharmacists to navigate effortlessly between CDS products. For example, a clinician can move seamlessly from MD Consult to Clinical Pharmacology, without logging in and out of multiple programs, saving time and effort.
"CHRISTUS is convinced that online decision support solutions play a vital role in fulfilling the system's mission," Royer said. "The implementation and use of Elsevier's multiple solutions will help us to create services, process and structures that improve the health of individuals and local and global communities."
