Creating a unified patient record at Rochester Regional Health
Several mergers have occurred within Rochester Regional Health. Therefore, aggregating and accessing data quickly and easily was essential. The health system needed to connect disparate systems, improve its diabetes care and reduce readmission and duplicate services all while running a hospital.
With Allscripts, Rochester Regional Health:
- Created a single patient view from four internal EHRs, other clinical systems and regional and statewide health information exchanges (HIEs)
- Developed the Community Diabetes Collaborative, which considerably reduced the number of patients with uncontrolled blood sugar levels
- Utilized data from multiple EHRs to give clinicians a comprehensive view of the patient record.
