ICA scores Kentucky hospital EHR install
Lourdes Hospital in Paducah, Ky., has selected the A3Align EHR from Informatics Corporation of America (ICA) of Nashville, Tenn.

"We selected ICA's A3Align Solution for its ability to build upon our existing acute and ambulatory systems to align our hospital with physician practices. Its aggregation capabilities will give our providers easy access to a patient's longitudinal record, with real-time access to results," said Steven Grinnell, president and CEO of Lourdes Hospital. 

In the initial phase of the agreement, ICA will aggregate patient information from existing clinical systems, including Meditech Magic, Chart Maxx, PICIS, MIDAS, OBIX, Allscripts, Ulrich and Fuji. Subsequent phases are slated to extend the solution's functionality beyond aggregation, according to Grinnell.
