New York Downtown Hospital (New York Downtown) signed on for new integrated solutions from Atlanta-based Eclipsys that the company says will create a single EHR across venues.

New technology solutions include Sunrise Acute Care for CPOE, Sunrise Pharmacy and Sunrise Emergency Care. In combination, says the company, these applications will create a single and unified view of up-to-date patient information from the emergency room to bedside and into the hospital pharmacy.

New York Downtown also opted to deploy Eclipsys Sunrise Record Manager solution to free up valuable storage space, facilitate comprehensive chart tracking and requests, chart completion, release of information, electronic signature and medical record abstracting. In addition, the hospital has renewed its services agreement with Eclipsys to support it in major aspects of the IT project and ongoing system maintenance.

New York Downtown Hospital (NYDH) is the closest acute care hospital to the 600,000 people who work and live in Lower Manhattan, NYDH's mission is to serve the people who comprise the diverse business and residential communities of Wall Street, Chinatown, SoHo, TriBeCa, Battery Park City and the Lower East Side. Each year, the Hospital has more than 37,000 emergency visits, 146,000 outpatient visits, 11,000 inpatients, 5,300 outpatient surgeries and 2,400 new babies born.
