Texas-based JPS weighs creating $150 million electronic records system

Fort Worth Star-Telegram, April 16, 2009
JPS Health Network administrators say several patient safety issues could be addressed if the Texas-based, taxpayer-supported hospital district does away with handwritten records and combines its paper files and various computer systems under one electronic medical record system. But the estimated cost of the project is $150 million, about one and a half times the cost of building the 108-bed pavilion that opened last year. JPS board members are expected to vote soon on a strategic plan to overhaul medical records.
