Denver, Col.-based Catholic Health Initiatives, one of the largest health systems in the United States with 73 hospitals, has selected PatientKeeper for an integrated physician information system.

CHI hospitals will use the system to streamline physician access to patient information by consolidating information from disparate health information systems, says the company. The first hospital within the system to go live with the applications will be Saint Joseph Medical Center in Towson, Md.

The solution will complement CHI’s existing Meditech and Cerner HIS, the company stated. The PatientKeeper Physician Portal and Mobile Clinical Results will deliver access to clinical information from any computer or smartphone, including medication history, MAR, lab results, notes, PACS images, EKGs, vitals and I/Os.
