Daou builds physician portal at Salem Hospital
Daou Systems Inc. has inked an agreement with Salem Hospital Regional Health Services in Salem, Ore., to design and implement an internet portal tool for physicians.

Daou said it will develop and implement a Provider Portal, built on the emPOWERnet web services architecture technology from Park City Solutions of Park City, Utah, to provide Salem Hospital with a platform that integrates information from disparate systems into a single view. There it can be quickly and easily accessed by physicians, nurses and other authorized clinical and administrative staff, said Daou.

The first phase of the project will take six months to complete. Salem Hospital, one of the largest of Oregon's 63 acute-care hospitals, is a not-for-profit hospital with 454 acute-care beds.
