Kentucky hospital rolls out ICA solution
Informatics Corporation of America (ICA) has deployed its ICA solution at Lourdes Hospital in Paducah, Ky., to assist physicians in providing community-wide care.

The 379-bed hospital, part of the Catholic Healthcare Partners network, contracted with ICA to aggregate data from a multitude of in-place healthcare information systems and provide a tool allowing physicians to monitor, assess and treat patients across the various treatment settings in and around the Paducah area, according to the Nashville, Tenn.-based ICA.

The solution collects data from the hospital’s core information system, as well as laboratory, radiology, quality-assurance, ambulatory EMRs and other supporting clinical systems, yielding a longitudinal patient record.
