St. Barnabas Hospital in Bronx, N.Y., has selected Atlanta-based Eclipsys solutions for both its emergency department and hospital pharmacy.

St. Barnabas Hospital’s physicians are already using Sunrise Ambulatory Care to help manage more than 400,000 ambulatory patient visits annually.

In addition to pharmacy and the ED, says the company, Sunrise Knowledge-Based Medication Administration will enable nurses to use bar code scanning before administering medications and use the solution to reconcile all orders as the patient moves between venues of care.
