CHICAGO, Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — The Guam Regional Medical City (GRMC), a new hospital under construction on the island of Guam, has signed a contract with Allscripts for rapid deployment of Allscripts MDRX +0.09% suites for electronic health records solution, revenue cycle management, and overall budgeting and planning.
GRMC will move forward with Allscripts Sunrise(TM) clinical product suite as its electronic health record (EHR) solution. The hospital also will deploy Sunrise Financial Manager(TM) for revenue cycle management and Allscripts EPSi(TM) for overall budgeting and planning. To ensure all products are implemented by the time the hospital opens, GRMC intends to use Allscripts Speed to Value implementation methodology.
When opened, GRMC will be the only private hospital in Guam. It is majority-owned and operated by The Medical City (TMC), a Joint Commission International (JCI)-accredited hospital facility and the premiere healthcare network in the Philippines. Currently scheduled for completion in late 2014, the hospital will initially have 130 beds, with plans to expand in the near future.
“We chose Allscripts for its ability to provide a complete hospital solution within our aggressive timeframe,” said Gloria Long, Chief Operating Officer of GRMC. “We wanted a vendor with proven ability to drive high-quality healthcare outcomes aligned with our vision of patient empowerment and partnership.”
Because GRMC will operate in a U.S. territory, it requires a vendor that understands U.S. healthcare regulations and has products certified to meet Meaningful Use standards. GRMC will thus deploy a complete clinical and financial system that includes Sunrise Critical Care(TM), Sunrise Emergency Care(TM), Sunrise Laboratory(TM), Patient Registration, EPSi and Sunrise Financial Manager. The Allscripts Services organization will provide its expertise for a rapid implementation of the Allscripts solutions based on its repeatable experience and proven results.
“We look forward to partnering with GRMC to transform health care in Guam,” said Paul M. Black, President and Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts. “The Sunrise suite of solutions will help the hospital provide quality care for its patients in a cost-efficient way, which will enable the new organization, and the health of the entire population, to thrive for years to come.”
With the addition of GRMC, Allscripts continues to increase its presence in Guam and around the world, helping its clients outside of the contiguous United States succeed in delivering extraordinary care to their patients.
