Sutter Health, which operates 28 hospitals in northern California, is implementing software from Mi-Co as part of its mobile data collection efforts.
Sutter employs more than 41,000 people.
The Mi-Co Mi-Forms solution will be used on Tablet PCs at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco.
“The system conforms to the way our time-constrained professionals work,” said Richard Shaw, director of research, quality and education for the Sutter Pacific Heart Centers of Sutter Health. “We’ve simply replaced pen and paper with digital ink and Tablet PCs. With this change, we’re now in a position to collect an entire spectrum of data and deposit the data simultaneously in a clinical system or a national registry. At the Medical Center we can now even send images of forms to our Electronic Medical Record (EMR) System saving a number of steps in that process. It’s like zapping your paper form right into the database.”
