Eastern Health System
Microsoft SharePoint Portal Solution Improves Policies & Procedures Processes for Healthcare Provider
Eastern Health System. is a fully integrated healthcare delivery system serving Jefferson, Blount and St. Clair Counties in Alabama. The System includes three major medical centers, as well as 12 primary care centers, and a wide variety of other health and healthcare related services. EHS needed a new corporate information system to provide more timely, up-to-date, and easily accessible information.
The company deployed Microsoft® SharePoint® Products and Technologies to create portals and Web sites where clinicians and staff can quickly post and access healthcare policy and procedures forms and information. Business leaders are using new data analysis capabilities to better analyze business performance and respond more quickly to changing healthcare plans and regulations. These improvements have resulted in more timely and appropriate care for patients, better informed clinicians, more efficient use of resources, and IT support cost savings.“Microsoft SharePoint Portal has provided a solid framework on which to build a robust Policy and Procedure Maintenance System for our customers at Eastern Health System. This solution will greatly simplify the document review and publishing process, ensuring the hospital staff has instant access to current, detailed policies and procedures.”
