Ochsner, iRise revamp health system's EMR
Ochsner Health System has completed an EMR renovation project with an assist from enterprise visualization company iRise.

Using iRise's enterprise visualization technology, Ochsner software specialists were able to create interactive simulations of the improved EMR, a system that is used by 700 doctors and more than 4,000 clinicians across Ochsner Health System facilities, according to El Segundo, Calif.-based iRise.

Ochsner Health System has leveraged visualization from iRise on projects that include:

  • Re-engineering a system used for electronic delivery of patient test results;
  • A design for a major new part of the EMR;
  • Changes to the e-prescribing module of the EMR; and
  • Changes to the EMR’s diagnosis navigator.

The estimated nine-month project—an upgrade to a key module in the EMR system used by nearly 40 health centers—was finished in three months, according to project managers at Ochsner, Southeast Louisiana’s largest multi-specialty healthcare delivery system.
