UMass Memorial Health Care

, a five-hospital system based in Worcester, Mass., is implementing a system from Pittsburgh-based

to create an interoperable single electronic patient record across different IT environments and care areas.

The solution will integrate various systems at UMass Memorial, including the Meditech EMR, Allscripts’ ambulatory EMR, Initiate Systems’ EMPI, the IDX Registration System and community pharmacy information from SureScripts-RxHub.

UMass Memorial is the largest integrated healthcare system in Central and Western Massachusetts and is the clinical partner of the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Its 1,101-bed network includes UMass Memorial Medical Center, with three campuses, and its four community hospitals: Clinton Hospital, HealthAlliance Hospital, Marlborough Hospital and Wing Memorial Hospital. The network also includes community physician-based practices, home health, hospice, rehabilitation and behavioral health services.
