Eclipsys Corp. is deploying its Sunrise Clinical Manager XA with Critical Care at Pennsylvania Hospital, one of University of Pennsylvania Health System's three teaching hospitals.

The project builds on previous Sunrise Clinical Manager installations at UPHS's other two hospitals -- the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP) and Presbyterian Medical Center. As with HUP and Presbyterian, Eclipsys said it will remote host Sunrise Clinical Manager XA with Critical Care for Pennsylvania Hospital from Eclipsys' Technology Solutions Center located in Mountain Lakes, N.J.

UPHS said it intends to move Pennsylvania Hospital and its sister facilities closer to the ultimate goal of becoming paperless hospitals. "The unified database that we're deploying across these three facilities will help us in fulfilling the government's objective of providing EHRs for most Americans within the decade," said George Brenckle, CIO.

In related news, Eclipsys is set to deploy its Sunrise Clinical Manager XA with Disease Manager-Oncology, Sunrise Record Manager, and Sunrise Surgical Manager at Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI).

Automating oncology clinical trials, protocols and regimens, Eclipsys' Disease Manager-Oncology software includes an electronic patient record, a complete order entry system, a clinical data repository and rich clinical content. The system provides more than 100 patient order sets that oncologists can customize to support the way that they treat and manage patients, said Eclipsys.

The Sunrise Surgical Manager integrates the surgery department with the healthcare organization to provide decision support for clinicians during surgical procedures.
