Advocate Health Care implements Carefx solution

Aug. 4, 2010

SCOTTSDALE, AZ – August 3, 2010 – More than 5,000 physicians at Advocate Health Care, the largest fully integrated not-for-profit healthcare delivery system in Illinois, will have streamlined access to patient information across Advocate’s 11 Chicago-area hospitals with the implementation of Fusionfx, a portal-based work flow solution from Carefx Corporation.

Advocate is deploying the Fusionfx physician portal at the recently acquired Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, IL. Scheduled to go live in October, Fusionfx also will help streamline Condell’s hospital-wide transition from McKesson Horizon to Cerner, the Advocate-endorsed system, internally branded “Care Connection.”

The physician portal is the second collaboration between Advocate and Carefx. In April 2010, Carefx deployed an obstetrics portal at Advocate’s Illinois Masonic Medical Center (IMMC). The obstetrics portal provides an aggregate view of information housed in the Cerner EMR and Phillips OB TraceVue. Having immediate access to a unified view of mother/baby records minimizes errors and ensures the safety of more than 3,600 mothers who deliver their babies at IMMC each year.
