Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital Hires Electronic Health Record Vendor
May 10 -
Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital in Lebanon, N.H., is pleased to announce the engagement of Greenway Medical Technologies of Carrollton, Ga. to begin developing an electronic data management system that will establish Electronic Health Records for clinic patients. The project, estimated to cost over $1 million, will kick off early in May.
“Electronic Health Records have many benefits; they will allow us to improve efficiency and better serve our patients, helping us coordinate data sharing between providers on our campus and offices statewide,” says Lorraine Nichols, Director of Information Services.
Dr. Sheila Feyrer, Medical Director of Informatics, explains: “Our goal is to make it easier to update and access patient information across all areas of their care. We’ll be better able to track individual pieces of information such as laboratory reports and complete medication lists, which will give us a much more efficient and accurate set of records.”
The system will be funded in part by a $720,000 bequest from the estate of the late Mary T. Burke, a long-time Auxiliary member and friend of the hospital who served as a trustee, volunteer, and incorporator.
