A good partnership can help a hospital excel on the road to value-based healthcare. Since 2000 Allscripts has managed IT services for Springhill Medical Center, a privately held, independent hospital in Mobile, AL. It is also one of the most advanced users of the Allscripts Sunrise platform.
Prior to outsourcing, Springhill felt it was falling behind in technology when compared with nine other hospitals within a 50-mile radius. Springhill needed to replace or upgrade almost every system. Allscripts (Eclipsys at the time) began to manage IT services, including hardware and software support for our clinical systems, strategic planning, telecommunications and integration across several clinical and business applications.
Today, these services support 2,000 end users at 15 locations, with 100+ applications on more than 350 servers. Under Mark’s leadership, IT has flourished at Springhill.
