Southeast Technology Center Provides Data System to Improve Healthcare
Sunday, February 26, 2012
SoutheastHEALTH has embraced electronic medical records, opening the Southeast Technology Center on Feb. 5 in in partnership with Missouri Delta Medical Center.
"Southeast is on the leading edge of technology," notes Mike Dozier, regional information officer for SoutheastHEALTH.
The Cape Girardeau and Sikeston, Mo., hospitals have developed Servir, a joint program designed to help both hospitals and physician offices meet new federal electronic medical records requirements. The goal is to improve quality, reduce healthcare costs, and provide an enhanced continuum of care through the use of technology, says Dozier.
The data center, located at Silver Springs Road and Highway 74 in Cape Girardeau, has a state of the art networking and data storage system. It also includes computer training rooms.
Installation of the Soarian health information system from Siemens over the course of the next year will help physicians and both hospitals provide the most accurate and efficient care possible, Dozier notes.
"The technology will benefit our employees, physicians and patients," he says. "Those benefits include the ability to access the system via mobile devices and the ability of our patients and physicians to access medical records and results online through secure portals."
