United Hospital System (UHS) in Kenosha, Wis., has selected Atlanta-headquartered Eclipsys Corp.’s suite of solutions. According to Eclipsys, in an effort to enhance both acute and outpatient care, the regional healthcare system chose clinical, ambulatory and performance management solutions.

Eclipsys says UHS will implement its Sunrise Enterprise clinical solutions — Sunrise Clinical Manager, Sunrise Pharmacy, Sunrise Critical Care, Sunrise Emergency Care, Knowledge-Based Medication Administration and Knowledge-Based Charting. The clinical applications reside on its Eclipsys XA extended architecture platform, along with the PeakPractice PM practice management solution, it says. By transitioning from disparate information systems to an integrated technology platform that extends into the emergency department and outpatient settings, the company claims UHS can expect to see expanded, enterprise-wide clinical workflows and a seamless care environment.

United Hospital System is a comprehensive regional healthcare system that has served southeastern Wisconsin and northern Illinois communities for more than 100 years. UHS provides services primarily through the Kenosha Medical Center Campus and the St. Catherine’s Medical Center Campus and several other clinic locations.
