South Nassau Communities Hospital selects Eclipsys

Aug. 5, 2010

ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Eclipsys Corporation today announced that South Nassau Communities Hospital (South Nassau), a 435-bed teaching hospital located in Oceanside, NY, has selected the company’s Sunrise Enterprise suite of integrated clinical solutions. South Nassau’s technology initiative, which includes Eclipsys’ leading computerized physician order entry (CPOE) solution, will support creating a unified electronic system throughout departments to transform care delivery processes for safer care, greater efficiency and improved outcomes. The investment in advanced technology also will support South Nassau in its goal to meet the recently finalized “Meaningful Use” requirements of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 to qualify for stimulus funds.

South Nassau’s plans call for deployment of Eclipsys’ CPOE solution to support evidence-based practices and clinical decision making, along with the company’s integrated pharmacy solution, Sunrise Pharmacy. Working in concert via a single database, the solution enables integrated handoffs between clinicians and pharmacists resulting in fewer errors and accelerated time to medication treatment. Deployment of Eclipsys’ clinical documentation solution, e-prescribing and orders reconciliation solutions will contribute to further clinical efficiency, medication safety and care team collaboration. In combination, these new solutions will create a single electronic health record (EHR) across care venues to improve care team efficiency and clinical decision making.
