Thomson Reuters Installs Clinical Xpert at Catholic Healthcare West for HIS Downtime Solution
Date:1/28/2009

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Jan. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Thomson Reuters announced today that Catholic Healthcare West (CHW), the eighth largest hospital system in the United States, has implemented Clinical Xpert(TM) as its downtime solution when access to the hospital information system (HIS) and electronic patient data is temporarily unavailable.

CHW has implemented Clinical Xpert - a Thomson Reuters healthcare solution formerly called MercuryMD MData - in five of its facilities and plans to implement it across additional facilities in 2009.

During planned and unplanned HIS downtime, clinicians can access the staging database to retrieve the most recent clinical data for their patients - so they can continue providing informed care without interrupting their workflow.

"Clinical Xpert is a key component of Catholic Healthcare West's overall clinical information system continuity plan," said Scott Whyte, senior director of physician and ambulatory IT strategy at CHW. Though downtimes are rare, during one recent period CHW clinicians were able to access Clinical Xpert for their patient information, allowing them to continue on their rounds without interruptions.

In addition, the Clinical Xpert Navigator enables CHW clinicians to get real-time access to clinical data via their mobile devices such as Palm, Windows Mobile and BlackBerry(R) smartphones.
