Birmingham, Ala.-based Children’s Health System (CHS) has selected Atlanta-headquartered Eclipsys Corp.’s Sunrise Enterprise suite. According to Eclipsys, CHS plans to implement the platform in its new, fully digital expansion facility.

As part of its “Keeping Promises” initiative to create a state-of-the-art facility to help deliver the highest levels of pediatric patient safety, the company says CHS will deploy Eclipsys’ acute care, pharmacy, medication management and evidence-based clinical documentation solutions, the company says. In combination, it claims, these integrated applications will help CHS create a closed-loop medication management process, support dosing protocols, as well as standardized care delivery across multiple sites.

According to the company, CHS is one of the 10 busiest pediatric medical centers in the country, is one of only about 45 freestanding acute care hospitals of its kind in the nation, and the only hospital in Alabama dedicated solely to the care and treatment of children.
