After a "perfect" implementation, Fusionfx from Carefx gives Enloe clinicians rapid access to patient data from multiple information systems
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., March 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Clinicians at Enloe Medical Center in Chico, Calif. can now quickly and easily access patient data from four separate hospital information systems thanks to Fusionfx. This interoperability platform from Carefx aligns relevant patient data across multiple applications to provide clinicians with a complete view of a patient's health history.
Enloe is a 382-bed hospital serving more than 400,000 residents in a six-county region of Northern California. It chose Fusionfx for its ability to synchronize data from diverse systems - including laboratory, pharmacy, medical records and radiology - into a complete, multidisciplinary view of a patient's record. As a result, Enloe's more than 1,600 employees and physicians who use the system can deliver and coordinate patient care more efficiently.
"Clinicians who were once bogged down by multiple user IDs, passwords and redundant queries for information now save precious time with the streamlined workflow delivered through Fusionfx," said Jim Hauenstein, Chief Information Officer at Enloe. "Clinicians can now more quickly and easily make informed patient care decisions because Fusionfx gives them a concise, complete look at relevant patient data, where and when they need it."
In addition, Carefx implemented Fusionfx without any workflow disruption, on budget and on schedule, even as Enloe underwent two major computer system upgrades during the implementation period.
"Never before have we had a technology project go live without numerous help desk calls. The Carefx implementation was perfect right out of the gate," said Hauenstein. "By implementing Fusionfx, Enloe decreased clinician's frustration of logging into multiple applications and searching for patient data between systems. Enloe has seen a significant increase in the number of clinicians accessing the Enloe applications. Fusionfx has allowed Enloe to integrate our existing systems while keeping overall system cost down."
Enloe searched for more than a year for a solution that would utilize existing information infrastructure and not disrupt existing hospital workflows. After considering several options, Enloe chose Carefx for its flexibility and ability to tailor a solution to meet the unique needs of Enloe's care providers.
"Carefx's scalable and service-oriented workflow platform will help Enloe clinicians more quickly and easily access patient information by managing the transition of information across their enterprise," said Randy Hamamoto, Vice President of Sales for Carefx. "Helping Enloe enhance patient care was an important goal for us at Carefx and one that we are proud to have achieved."
Carefx will explain its Fusionfx suite of solutions at the Carefx HIMSS booth (#3637), April 4-8, 2009, in Chicago.
