Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI), a Denver-based healthcare system, has selected PatientKeeper, a provider of integrated physician information systems, to support its ongoing physician affinity and medication safety initiatives.
Under the contract, CHI hospitals will leverage PatientKeeper’s physician information system to allow physician access to patient information by consolidating information from disparate health information systems, according to the Boston-based PatientKeeper. CHI hospitals will be able to leverage their existing HIS investments while providing physicians an improved interface and access to patient information in any location, the company said.
CHI includes 73 hospitals; 42 long-term care, assisted and independent living and residential facilities; and two community-based health organizations located in 19 states. The health system represents approximately 66,000 full- and part-time employees.
