On Monday, Allscripts announced it is embedding Elsevier’s CPM Framework into Allscripts Sunrise EHR to to support clinical decision at point of care. The collaboration strengthens coordination of patient care capabilities in the Allscripts Sunrise EHR, the core of the solution Allscripts and CSC exclusively proposed to the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) for the $11B DoD EHR Modernization project. DHMSM seeks an open EHR solution that is interoperable between a wide range of public and private healthcare facilities and military treatment facilities to improve healthcare services for military members and their families.
Access to Best Practices Improves Bedside and Theater Care
Elsevier’s CPM Framework includes an interprofessional practice model designed to support care providers in clinical decision-making and applying best practices at the point of care. Through the Allscripts Sunrise solution, clinicians have access to patients’ health history in a way that is intentionally designed to support the application of the CPM Framework. Treatment plans are supplemented with evidence-based best practices, which improves quality of care and patient outcomes.
Field-tested Framework Improves Patient Outcomes
Members of the military injured in the line of duty may transfer between healthcare facilities in a number of countries in a short amount of time. The Allscripts Sunrise EHR and Elsevier CPM Framework help ensure continuity of care by providing clinicians at every site a complete picture of patients’ history and rationale for treatment plans, which are based on best practices that are uniquely individualized to each situation.
Allscripts Sunrise EHR and Elsevier CPM Framework solution is currently used by healthcare organizations such as Abington Health and North Shore-LIJ Health System (NSLIJ). Only time will tell if this helps Allscripts chances of securing the DoD EHR bid.
