Mercy Memorial Hospital System, a 238-bed community hospital located in metropolitan Detroit, selected Chicago-based Allscripts as its enterprise-wide health information technology provider, enabling the hospital, its 200 staff physicians, and post-acute providers to connect and collaborate for a team approach to improving patient care.

Mercy Memorial's implementation will include a full spectrum of Allscripts clinical solutions for the acute, ambulatory and post-acute markets. Mercy Memorial Chief Information Officer Bruce Kelly said the hospital selected Allscripts after an exhaustive, year-long review based on the ability of Allscripts to deliver a complete enterprise health information solution connecting providers and other healthcare professionals across every one of Mercy Memorial's care settings. The final decision came in September, shortly after Allscripts announced its merger with Eclipsys Corporation.

Kelly said the Allscripts EHR will ensure that ACOs in which Mercy Memorial participates can capture necessary patient data, support care-related transactions such as e-prescribing, and provide clinical decision support for the delivery of evidence-based medicine aligned with ACO quality and efficiency goals.
