26 Apr Aurora to install TeraMedica's Evercore technology
Milwaukee, Wis. – Citing the need to deliver an independent, lightweight image set to all desktops within the context of its electronic medical records, Aurora Health Care will install the Evercore clinical information management product developed by TeraMedica, a privately held medical software company.
The installation, which will occur over the next several months, will enable Aurora to integrate its medical images and distribute them to attending healthcare providers within the Cerner power chart module of Aurora’s electronic medical record.
This will allow healthcare providers to view, in an electronic format, both the medical image and the text report interpretation of the image, in the patient’s medical record.
Judy Murphy, vice president of information services for Aurora, said the Evercore product will allow doctors, nurses, and specialists to quickly identify and retrieve all patient-centric images regardless of modality – whether it be a physical site or a picture archiving and communication system, or PACS.
Jim Prekop, CEO of TeraMedica, said the installation will deliver a holistic view of patients across the entire health system.
Aurora operates healthcare sites in more than 90 communities in eastern Wisconsin.
