Virginia Mason Signs with Carefx to Implement Fusionfx Solution Suite

Medical Center Leverages Fusionfx Solution Suite to Improve Patient Experience

Scottsdale, AZ (Vocus) June 30, 2009 -- Carefx announced today Seattle-based Virginia Mason Medical Center, a nationally recognized non-profit provider of integrated health services, has chosen the Fusionfx Solution Suite to deliver interoperability between its multiple information systems. The Fusionfx Solution Suite synchronizes patient data across existing systems, departments and facilities and provides Virginia Mason staff and clinicians with an easier, more efficient way to schedule patients across the medical center.

A "Leapfrog Top Hospital," Virginia Mason works to continually improve the patient experience, which is why it chose to implement an innovative scheduling system and supporting processes that streamline activities for patients and caregivers alike. For Virginia Mason staff and clinicians, the new system will make it easier for those in the call center and other departments and facilities to schedule patients without having to make duplicate entries or manually convey information across systems. On the patient side of the equation, it will be more convenient to book, remember and keep appointments.

Virginia Mason selected Carefx's Fusionfx Solution Suite because of the powerful clinical context and workflow technology of Fusionfx, as well as the complete identity management solution, including single sign-on and provisioning for Virginia Mason's key clinical systems. Equally important to the medical center's decision was Carefx's clinical expertise, adherence to industry best practices and long-standing relationships with IBM, GE and Cerner, all key business partners of Virginia Mason.

Virginia Mason physicians, nurses and allied health professionals will be able to obtain rapid access to patient scheduling information from diverse systems, including Cerner's PowerChart and Clinical Information System, GE Centricity's Business Web and RIS, and Phillips iSite PACS System.

"Carefx presented a cost-effective approach that will take Virginia Mason fewer than six months to implement and will provide indispensable flexibility and scalability for our ever-changing environment," said Steve Tsukuno, Director of Information Systems at Virginia Mason. "Our entire organization, as well as our patient population, will benefit from streamlined workflows, highly efficient scheduling capabilities and rapid access to patient information from multiple systems delivered through the Fusionfx Solution Suite from Carefx."

"Carefx is proud to support Virginia Mason's strategy of always putting the patient first and leveraging technology solutions to improve patient care quality," said Andrew Hurd, Carefx's Chairman and CEO. "We pride ourselves on delivering solutions that are open, flexible and scalable, while empowering care providers to improve the staff and patient care experience. We look forward to partnering with Virginia Mason to fulfill its business and clinical mission and advance healthcare in the Seattle area."
