Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC Recognized for Deepest Use of Electronic Health Records for a Pediatric Hospital in Nation
Date:8/28/2009

PITTSBURGH, Aug. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC has been recognized by KLAS, an independent healthcare research organization, as the leader in its use of healthcare information technology among pediatric hospitals in the United States.

KLAS interviewed leaders at virtually every hospital in the United States that reported physicians and nurses actively using commercially available software to order and chart under an organized program sponsored by the hospital, said KLAS Founder Kent Gale during a presentation this week at Children's Hospital.

"That achievement makes Children's Hospital one of the nation's leaders in healthcare technology adoption. This is only the third time in 12 years that KLAS has recognized a specific healthcare organization for the depth of adoption of electronic health records."

The new Children's Hospital, which opened in May, is one of the most advanced digital hospitals in the country and among the first with a fully integrated electronic health record. Children's Hospital began its implementation of an electronic health record in 2001 when it became one of the first hospitals in the nation to adopt a computerized provider order entry (CPOE) system.

"This recognition is a real tribute to the hard work and ingenuity of the physicians and employees of Children's Hospital, the UPMC information technology teams, and our partners at Cerner Corporation. The automation of clinical information across the continuum of care is a highly complex and challenging undertaking that can only be accomplished through outstanding teamwork," said Christopher Gessner, president, Children's Hospital.
