Silver Hill Hospital (New Canaan, Conn.) signed a five-year contract with Carslbad, Calif.-based Medsphere Systems Corporation for implementation, training and support of the company’s OpenVista EHR solution.

Under the terms of the deal, the implementation of OpenVista at Silver Hill will provide psychiatric practitioners with access to clinical IT support, including a comprehensive EHR in the OpenVista Clinical Information System, CPOE functionality, an inpatient bar code medication administration system, a health information management system, interoperability via the OpenVista Interface Suite, and testing support through the laboratory application.

Additionally, Silver Hill practitioners will have access to OpenVista Group Notes, which allow behavioral treatment therapists to use a single interface to take clinical notes for a group of patients, says the company.

Silver Hill Hospital is a not-for-profit psychiatric hospital that provides inpatient and residential Transitional Living Programs for adolescents and adults with psychiatric and substance use disorders.
