With an eye on positioning itself for ARRA funding, St. Barnabas Hospital of Bronx, N.Y., has selected Atlanta-based Eclipsys’ CPOE solution as a foundation to establishing an EHR in its acute care environments, the company says. The initiative, it says, builds on St. Barnabas’ use of the company’s clinical technology at all three of its ambulatory care centers and is part of an effort to align itself with the requirements of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Eclipsys says the plans call for the hospital to utilize the company to accelerate activation to help meet the specified ARRA timeline requirements and maximize stimulus payment opportunities.

St. Barnabas has achieved 100 percent physician adoption of Eclipsys’ Sunrise Ambulatory Care solution within its ambulatory care centers, which see nearly 400,000 patient visits annually, the company says. In combination with other components of the company’s integrated suite of clinical solutions, the deployment of its CPOE solution, Sunrise Acute Care, will support St. Barnabas in establishing an enterprise-wide EHR that will encompass the ED and hospital pharmacy, Eclipsys says.

St. Barnabas Hospital is the flagship of an expanding healthcare network located in St. Barnabas in the heart of the Bronx in New York. The hospital provides comprehensive inpatient and outpatient services. Outpatient services include a large network of primary care sites and community mental health centers, located throughout the Bronx.
