Flagler Hospital Selects Allscripts dbMotion Solution to Enhance Population Health Management
CHICAGO, IL: Flagler Hospital, a general medical and surgical hospital in Saint Augustine, FL has selected the Allscripts dbMotion solution to connect a myriad of electronic health records across the community. In creating a single, longitudinal patient record through Allscripts dbMotion, Flagler Hospital seeks to reduce costs and improve quality of care.
Flagler will use the Allscripts dbMotion Clinical Analytics Gateway (CAG) to optimize existing analytics packages and will adopt the solution's Population Health Analytics functionality during the second stage of its Allscripts dbMotion implementation.
Allscripts dbMotion gives real time analytics at the point of care. Providers can see gaps and risk factors while the patient is in front of them, and can take steps to make sure proper care is given—not only for the complaint that lead to the current visit, but for other conditions as well.
Another factor influencing Flagler Hospital's selection of Allscripts dbMotion was "the power of the EHR Agent. This feature of Allscripts dbMotion identifies patient information that resides in community EHRs, but may not appear in the provider's "home" system. EHR Agent automatically alerts providers to the existence of this delta information and allows them to import the new data if they desire. "EHR Agent is embedded in the provider's native workflow and instantly brings new clinical information into the workflow," he said. "This community view is a wonderful asset," said Bill Rieger, Chief Information Officer, Flagler Hospital.
