Dublin Methodist Hospital in Ohio, part of OhioHealth, is opening an all-digital, full-service community hospital, using McKesson’s EHR system, Horizon Clinicals suite.
Cheryl Herbert, RN, president of Dublin Methodist Hospital, said that the hospital “designed IT into the building as an essential component of care and committed early on to 100 percent system adoption by physicians, nurses and the rest of the care team. This is in keeping with our partnership in the Pebble Project, a national group of healthcare organizations focused on following best practices in design that have proven to enhance not only quality of care, the patient experience and financial performance, but ultimately patient outcomes.”
McKesson said it incorporated its technology within the framework of the “high-tech, high-touch” approach that the new 94-bed facility is bringing to its patients. Doctors, nurses and medical staff will have online access to patient information when and where it is needed at the point of care, McKesson said.
OhioHealth is a family of 15 hospitals, 20 health and surgery centers, home-health providers, medical equipment and health service suppliers throughout 46 counties.
