The Eclipsys Corporation (Atlanta) announced that the John T. Mather Memorial Hospital (Mather), a 248-bed community hospital located in Port Jefferson, N.Y., has chosen to implement the company’s Sunrise Enterprise integrated suite of solutions to create a single electronic health record. Mather expects the utilization of the new system will support its goal of meeting the “meaningful use” definition of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 to become eligible for stimulus payments.

Mather will deploy Eclipsys’s computerized physician order entry system to support evidence –based practices and clinical decision making, along with the company’s clinical documentation solution, Knowledge-Based Charting, and pharmacy information system, Sunrise Pharmacy. Mather will accelerate the implementation of the services to satisfy expected timeline requirements under ARRA.

John T. Mather Memorial Hospital is an accredited non-profit community hospital providing care to 13,000 inpatients and 44,000 Emergency Department patients annually in Suffolk County.

Eclipsys is a provider of integrated clinical, revenue cycle and performance management software.
