SSM Healthcare-St. Louis launches integrated electronic medical record system

St. Louis Post-Dispatch, April 16, 2008

Over the next three years, SSM Healthcare-St. Louis will spend $330 million to connect all of its hospitals, physician clinics and patients through one information technology platform in an effort to ease administrative duties and improve patient safety. With the new system, physicians can access patients' information from home through a secure Web-based portal, through their office computers or in the hospital. Each hospital will choose the hardware nurses, doctors and other staff will use at the facility.
