HSHS Chooses Epiphany's Cardio Server for 13-Hospital Enterprise ECG Management System

MIDLOTHIAN, Va., April 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hospital Sisters Health System (HSHS) is a multi-institutional health care system that sponsors 13 hospitals in 12 communities across Illinois and Wisconsin.  When considering new technology for its 13 hospitals, HSHS has historically used a "best-of-breed" approach to select devices at each site.  In recent years, they are migrating to an integrated information system and enterprise solution for the 13 sites.  Epiphany's Cardio Server ( was chosen as the enterprise-wide ECG management system for HSHS.

"Our IT solutions can be leveraged across multiple hospitals, allowing us to replicate and enterprise our solutions to a central management strategy," states Kevin Groskreutz , Division CIO at Hospital Sisters Health System in Western Wisconsin.  HSHS pulled together a cross-functional team of physicians and directors in the Cardiovascular line, looked at what devices the hospitals within HSHS were currently using, and chose Epiphany's Cardio Server as an enterprise solution for ECG management.

"One of the major components for choosing Epiphany was the ability to manage a multiple modality integration into our enterprise solution.  The transition to the Epiphany model was a fairly easy one.  It really allows for much more integration than we had before with previous vendors who were much more proprietary in this aspect," Kevin adds.  "We have less IT architecture to maintain with Epiphany.  We have the various EMRs from different sites integrated through one single solution.  And on the clinical side, leveraging a consistent workflow is important.  For example, if I am a provider at St. John's and also practice at another hospital, I can walk in and my workflow is the same from one hospital to the next.  It just gives a consistency of operations between our facilities."

"Our facilities also range drastically in size.  St. John's is a large teaching hospital and trauma center and then we have sites that are critical access hospitals.  Levels of complexity and workflow are much different between different sized locations like that.  Epiphany has been able to match workflow at a very complex teaching hospital and manage their needs, as well as make workflow as efficient at a small critical access hospital."

When considering Epiphany's Cardio Server in comparison to other solutions on the market, Kevin mentioned that HSHS considered Epiphany to be much more economical to own and operate.  As an organization, they've gained a substantial ROI from migrating to Epiphany.  Kevin concludes, "I have been very happy with the project management component while working on this migration.  I'd give them an A+ in project management and implementation services."
