HATBORO, Pa., Sept. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- InfoLogix, Inc. (Nasdaq: IFLG), a leading technology provider of enterprise mobility solutions for the healthcare and commercial industries, announced today that it has been awarded a contract by Albert Einstein Healthcare Network, a private, not-for-profit healthcare system serving the greater Philadelphia area, for the development of web-based eLearning software to support a large-scale Electronic Medical Record (EMR) implementation.
As Albert Einstein Healthcare Network prepares to roll out 17 modules of the Cerner Operating System across multiple facilities, InfoLogix eLearning will be developing customized web-based software to support the successful EMR implementation, training and adoption across the Albert Einstein network. The engagement is estimated to last approximately six months.
"Implementing an advanced clinical information technology solution will give care givers throughout the Albert Einstein Healthcare Network access to evidence-based information allowing them to more easily provide the highest quality care to our patients. A successful implementation of this complexity is dependent on thorough training of our employees and physicians. We look forward to partnering with InfoLogix as they develop a custom-built training process," said Ken Levitan, Einstein vice president and CIO.
Over the past decade, InfoLogix has developed hundreds of customized eLearning programs for hospitals across North America, including organizations using Cerner, MEDITECH, Siemens, Epic, Eclipsys and other EMR packages. By providing customized, on-demand training modules that are tailored for each organization's unique needs, InfoLogix helps hospitals save hundreds of thousands of dollars in expenses, while improving material retention by up to 50% and ensuring that staff is able to realize the maximum potential from the hospital's EMR investments.
"While the ARRA stimulus act has put the spotlight on EMR implementations across the country, it's important to note that the ultimate success of any EMR endeavor is dependent on the ability of the hospital's clinicians and employees to utilize it properly," says Tom Kreuzberger, vice president of eLearning at InfoLogix. "We're proud to help organizations such as Albert Einstein Healthcare Network, which has been locally and nationally recognized for quality of care, with web-based training services to achieve the maximum return from their EMR investments."
