Baylor Health Care System emerged as the winner of the 2013 Tech Titans Technology Adopter Award. The prestigious award was given in recognition of its achievement for the prompt and successful design and execution of innovations enabled by Allscripts Healthcare Solutions (MDRX).
The Tech Titans award is presented by Metroplex Technology Business Council (:MTBC), the largest technology trade association in Texas. It currently covers a quarter million-strong workforce working through 300 member companies. The award recognizes companies and individuals who scale great heights and contribute significantly to the technology industry, particularly that in North Texas.
The accolade marks the expertise and hard work put in by the IT team at Baylor Health care, who designed many of the custom components for MDRX’s Sunrise Clinical Manager. The developments were done to give clinicians access to robust patient and operational information — including registration, demographics, and clinical data.
The offerings improved the existing physician documentation system, thereby securing safety and efficiency of patient care. The new enhancements will also improve the adoption and use of Computerized Physician Order Entry (:CPOE) and the use of electronic physician documentation.
Baylor has been a consistent partner of Allscipts Healthcare Solutions, constantly catering to the dynamic needs of the latter. One of such customizations supplied to Allscripts EHR was a custom physician documentation tool called NoteBuilder, which enabled 3,200 physicians within the Baylor network to create notes in a quick and accurate manner, reducing wastage of both time and effort on the part of the physicians. Such well-built and innovative systems serve as promising resources that help to serve patients better through efficient patient management systems.
Currently, MDRX carries a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell). Other medical stocks that are worth a look include Alere Inc (ALR), carrying a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), and Medidata Solutions, Inc. (MDSO), and Streamline Health Solutions, Inc. (STRM), each of which carries a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
