CSC Helps Fletcher Allen Health Care Implement Phase One of Electronic Health Records System in 15 Months
Date:9/22/2009

FALLS CHURCH, Va., Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- CSC (NYSE: CSC) today announced the successful implementation of the first phase of Fletcher Allen Health Care's comprehensive electronic health record (EHR) system, PRISM (Patient Record and Information Systems Management), after a 15-month planning and implementation period. PRISM is now operational in the hospital's inpatient areas as well as the Emergency Department, Walk-In Care Center, and inpatient pharmacy. Fletcher Allen is now positioned to meet the regulatory requirements of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009. Under ARRA, hospitals will receive monetary incentives if they demonstrate "meaningful use" of EHRs by 2011.

Benefits of the new EHR system from Epic include ease of viewing all patient information in one place; accessibility of patient information from remote locations; ability for multiple parties to concurrently check patient information; and instant access to medical orders. To date, Fletcher Allen's providers are entering 92 percent of all medical orders electronically (and 96 percent of all medication orders), reducing the turnaround time for receiving medications and tests, and enhancing the accuracy of clinical documentation.

"We adopted an electronic health record to improve safety and quality of care for patients," said Sandra Dalton, senior vice president of Patient Care Services and chief nursing officer at Fletcher Allen. "With CSC's healthcare expertise and track record in clinical systems implementation and improvement, we have succeeded in completing the first phase of our project
