Bronx-Lebanon, the largest voluntary not-for-profit health system serving the South and Central Bronx, will implement Eclipsys' Sunrise Clinical Manager integrated platform, including the modules Sunrise Acute Care(TM), Sunrise Emergency Care(TM), Sunrise Ambulatory Care(TM), Sunrise Critical Care(TM), Sunrise Pharmacy(TM), Knowledge-Based Medication Administration(TM), and Knowledge-Based Charting(TM).

To help ensure that patient information flows seamlessly from registration and scheduling to the point of care, Bronx-Lebanon will also implement Eclipsys Sunrise Patient Registration(TM) and Sunrise Enterprise Scheduling(TM), both of which are integrated with Sunrise Clinical Manager.

"When the Eclipsys program is fully implemented in the next two years, we will have the important advantage of a fully integrated electronic medical record system for the inpatient, ER and outpatient areas; thereby enabling us to keep pace with the latest technological advances in the field," stated Steven Anderman, chief operating officer, Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center Health Care System.

Integrated Platform to Better Connect Care Providers

Eclipsys integrated clinical solutions will connect caregivers so no matter where a patient presents - across the enterprise or in the community - each clinical team member has access to the up-to-date health records. It will leverage the evidence-based order sets in Eclipsys Knowledge-Based CPOE(TM) solution to help improve efficiency and drive adherence to standard practices. Eclipsys' user-friendly interface will enable Bronx-Lebanon physicians to build their own order sets, thereby engaging them in the implementation process, and helping to drive high rates of solution adoption.

"Bronx-Lebanon has a long history of using clinical information solutions to improve the quality of care delivery. As the organization looked for a modern platform, the selection of Sunrise Clinical Manager reflects on the quality of our XA architecture and our proven ability to help our clients achieve outcome improvements," said Jay Deady, Eclipsys executive vice president, Client Solutions. "Eclipsys and Bronx-Lebanon both share an organizational commitment to continuous improvement. Our Outcomes Methodology incorporates this philosophy into our implementation process, and we look forward to working with Bronx-Lebanon to help refine its clinical workflows so that rapid clinician adoption and outcome improvements are achieved and then consistently improved."

Taking Order Reconciliation to the Next Level

By connecting its care teams with a shared database and electronic medical record (EMR), Sunrise Clinic Manager will help clinicians deliver medications safely to patients anywhere in the healthcare system, or in the community. As patients move from one setting to another, clinicians will have access to previous medication orders, the opportunity to review them alongside new orders and plans for care, and a chance to reconcile any differences in a proactive manner. From the physician placing the orders, to the pharmacist dispensing the medication, to the nurses administering medications incorporating the "five rights," Eclipsys provides an end-to-end solution that connects the care team and helps prevent errors.

Using Content to Help Transform Care Delivery

With Sunrise Clinical Manager's care transforming content, clinicians will receive actionable knowledge at the point of decision making to help improve care delivery. Eclipsys' executable clinical content will help maintain high standards of care by providing clinicians easy access to the latest clinical evidence and increasingly complex regulatory requirements.

The Eclipsys solutions will be remotely hosted by the ISO 9001:2000- certified Eclipsys Technology Solutions Center in Mountain Lakes, NJ.
