15 OCIO: 2/1/2011 Strategic/Future Considerations Allscripts has an ED module as an option. Allscripts also has merged with Eclipsys for inpatient functionality. –Eclipsys is not a 'one data base' approach with Allscripts (interfaces). –Score: 2.0 Epic has the following integrated modules for future consideration: ED, Inpatient, Hem/Onc, Transplant, Inpatient Pharmacy, Ophthalmology and others. –Score 5.0
21 OCIO: 2/1/2011 SAC Recommendations Need more due diligence in order to determine #2 ranked vendor. Epic recommended top vendor to pursue: –Highest ranking vendor resulting from Selection process (and according to independent KLAS reports). –Epic’s client base is only in Academic Medical Centers or ‘mega’ hospital/health systems; they have less than 300 customers which allow Epic to focus better on fewer customers. –Physician utilization at Epic’s site visit was fairly extensive. –Epic’s company culture is impressive.
22 OCIO: 2/1/2011 Epic recommended… –MUSC’s IT experts rate Epic’s technology the highest. Epic appears to be more than an application software company as they are more- so a ‘technology company’. Specifically, Epic pays meticulous attention to testing and the underlying components such as the data base and server hardware. SAC Recommendations – cont’d
23 OCIO: 2/1/2011 SAC Recommendations- cont’d Epic recommended Has the most ‘single database’ modules that could be implemented in the future if desirable (e.g., ED, Ophthalmology, Inpatient); Allscripts has an integrated ED module, but not inpatient or Ophthalmology. Epic would allow MUSC the future opportunity to implement a fully integrated electronic medical record.
24 OCIO: 2/1/2011 SAC Recommendations- cont’d The committee understands that success of an ambulatory electronic medical record will in large part be influenced by appropriate implementation of the system. Therefore, the committee is also recommending the following receive the full support from MUSC Health clinical leadership: 1.Workflow changes in all clinics well in advance of go- live (e.g., standardization, policies, accountability, etc.). 2.Appropriate levels of implementation support and resources. 3.Appropriate levels of post go-live IT staffing levels. 4.Well-structured governance that is inclusive of all clinical practices.
25 OCIO: 2/1/2011 Receive best/final pricing from Allscripts (as they were the #2 ranked vendor). Finalize contract /award/sign (early February). Develop project plan with vendor. Identify project team members to go to vendor training. Official kick-off of project with vendor (TBD – April?) Next Steps
