South Jersey Healthcare Offers Sage Intergy EHR Electronic Health Records System to Community Physicians Through EHR Grant Program
Date:1/19/2009

Goal is to increase physician EHR adoption, interoperability with hospital systems for health information exchange

TAMPA, Fla., Jan. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- South Jersey Healthcare (SJH), an integrated healthcare system offering hospital services, ambulatory care services and home healthcare services to the residents of Southern New Jersey, has chosen Sage Intergy EHR electronic health records system to offer to physicians through eHealth Connection, SJH's EHR Grant Program.

"We've made a substantial investment in our hospital systems, implementing a clinical information system as well as hospital information systems. The hospital electronic medical records project is slated to begin later this year," said Tom Pacek, Chief Information Officer for SJH. "Our boards and administration feel strongly that to fully realize the efficiencies of these systems, our community-based physicians must adopt appropriate systems, too. Through our eHealth Connection, we will subsidize the cost of the electronic health records system and interfaces to our hospital clinical information system and HIE."

Mr. Pacek continued, "Our goal is to develop a health information exchange, or HIE, in our region, using interaction between our hospitals, other facilities, and community physicians as the catalyst."

According to Mr. Pacek, the eHealth Connection program will subsidize 85% of Sage Intergy EHR licensing fees for physicians on the SJH medical staff. It will also subsidize the cost to implement interfaces which will allow the practices to receive and send clinical information, lab orders and reports, and more, as discrete, mineable data for quality and outcomes analysis.

"Sage Intergy EHR was chosen for the program after a lengthy, in-depth search process," noted Mr. Pacek. "There were several key factors in the decision, including the integrated Sage Intergy practice management system, the Sage Practice Analytics business intelligence package for data analysis and reporting, and the company's extensive experience creating interoperability with hospital systems."

The system will be available either as an ASP system, with the hospital hosting the system, or as an onsite, client-server system.

"Since the relaxation of Stark regulations, more hospital systems are offering electronic health records to their community-based physicians," said Sharon L. Howard, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing for Sage. "These visionaries, like SJH, are moving our country's healthcare agenda forward toward a more quality-focused, evidence-based system of care."
