Every healthcare organization strives for operational efficiency to keep down costs while improving patient care. The information technology team at East Alabama Medical Center took that goal to heart. By adopting a robust integration engine, integration developers can now manage three times as many projects – with fewer people. Staff and clinician workflows have also improved so that potentially life-saving data is now more freely available.

“You’re also in a position to see where workflows could be improved. In the case of our Clinic EMR options and Optum Computer-Assisted Coding (CAC), it was easy to see we could do these things better as other goals aligned to push those forward.”

East Alabama uses Cerner Millennium, and the interface team soon realized another benefit of using Corepoint Integration Engine Web Services was the ease of adding new results using this EMR platform. For instance, in early 2017 the hospital will be adding an anatomic pathology module from Cerner Millennium to its general laboratory and microbiology offerings.

“It is the culture of our organization to constantly seek to improve in all areas of our business.”
