Integrated existing health IT technology software and systems among a three-hospital consortium to create a shared electronic record that ultimately gave providers access to real-time data and the ability to electronically prescribe medications. The goals of the project were to reduce medical errors, improve the quality of patient care, increase patient satisfaction and lower costs.
