St. Peter's University Hospital Clinical System Implementation is the winner of this year’s PMINJ Project of the Year.  The project involved the build and implementation of an acute care clinical computer system installed across all service lines of a 478 bed major teaching hospital to deliver an entirely paperless electronic health record.

The scope included building 20 applications, configuring 75 interfaces and the deployment of 750 devices. A total of 3500 end users were trained including nurses, physicians and ancillary department users. The project required St. Peter’s University Hospital to “think outside the box” to identify solutions and strategies to deliver the project on time, within budget and scope. The success of this project has positioned the hospital to deliver exemplary patient care while meeting federally mandated Healthcare Reform requirements.

Join us to learn how the team sucessfully implemented this project within their constraints
