Lourdes Hospital, a 389-bed facility in Paducah, Ky., (part of the Catholic Healthcare Partners network) has selected an integration platform from Nashville, Tenn.-based Informatics Corporation of America.
In the initial phase of the agreement, ICA will aggregate patient information from existing clinical systems, including Meditech Magic, Chart Maxx, PICIS, MIDAS, OBIX, Allscripts, Ulrich, and Fuji. Subsequent phases are slated to extend the solution's functionality beyond aggregation.
ICA's A3Align Solution is based upon technology developed over 10 years by practicing physicians and informatics professionals at Vanderbilt Medical Center, according to the vendor. It is installed at Bassett Healthcare's enterprise of five hospitals and 27 clinics in Cooperstown, N.Y. ICA recently announced the Health Information Exchange of Montana and Northwest Healthcare will soon begin implementation of the A3Align Solution as a single-source platform for meeting enterprise and community needs in northwest Montana.
