St. Joseph's Hospital, a 325-bed acute care hospital in Parkersburg, West Virginia, has selected the complete suite of medical records workflow technology from eWebHealth (Reading, Mass.)

St. Joseph's will use the eWebHIM technology suite to digitize all paper components of its legal health record (LHR). According to the company, the built-in workflows embedded in this e-LHR technology will automatically transmit patient charts to physicians for reviewing and completion and to the health information management department for analysis and coding.

In addition, the company touts, it will allow for simultaneous access to medical records for all authorized departmental users including Case Management, Quality Control, Utilization Review, Core Measures and Business Office.

St. Joseph's Hospital serves a population of approximately 300,000 residents in the facility's 11- county service area in the Mid-Ohio Valley. The hospital is an affiliate of Signature Hospital Corporation.
