UPMC is a cutting edge leader in harnessing the power of technology and accelerating innovation. This case study explores how UPMC was able to integrate clinical, financial, administrative, genomic and other information and use this data to:
• Improve research outcomes in search of cures and other diseases
• Determine the true cost of providing care with longitudinal patient records
• Examine clinical practice variations to benchmark and improve future procedures
• Strengthen information security, privacy and compliance capabilities
Pharmacies must look beyond automation of traditional processes, like prescriptions and communication toward two-way, interactive connectivity, giving the pharmacy the capability to both view and populate the patient’s community health record.
