Wisconsin Hospital System Signs with Eclipsys

United Hospital System (UHS) located in Kenosha, Wis., announced that it has selected a wide range of clinical, ambulatory and performance management solutions from Eclipsys Corp. to improve patient care. As part of the net-new client agreement, UHS is implementing a suite of Eclipsys' clinical applications, which reside on the Eclipsys XA extended architecture platform, along with the company's PeakPractice PM practice management solution. By transitioning from disparate information systems to an integrated technology platform that extends into its emergency department and outpatient settings, UHS expects to achieve expanded, enterprise-wide clinical workflows and a seamless care environment for physicians and patients in support of improved efficiency, clinical decision making and patient satisfaction.

In addition, the applications will aid in creating a closed-loop integrated medication management environment in support of efficient, safe dispensing of medications within the hospital pharmacy and at the bedside.
