Bon Secours Health System, the largest private health care provider in Ireland, has selected OnBase, Hyland’s enterprise information platform, to digitize and manage clinical documents. The platform will optimize workflows and performance across the enterprise, delivering content to clinicians and staff by integrating with its existing patient administration system, and other core clinical software applications, to improve medical data management and reduce operational costs.
With 3,000 staff and 450 leading consultants, Bon Secours treats more than 280,000 patients annually in its five modern acute hospitals located in Cork, Galway, Limerick, Tralee and Dublin.
Beginning in the coming weeks, Bon Secours will work with Hyland Healthcare on a remote implementation strategy to leverage OnBase across the organization. The enterprise-wide strategy will allow the health system to realize the full benefits of Hyland’s content services platform to better connect all departments and specialties.
“We are very much looking forward to using OnBase to create an interoperable platform where our existing technology investments can work together to create a comprehensive patient record,” said Tony McKeown, chief information officer at Bon Secours Ireland. “With a more complete record that captures structured content from our existing clinical systems and unstructured content from OnBase, our clinicians will have everything they need at their fingertips to make more informed clinical decisions that can improve patient outcomes. Additionally, OnBase will provide us with a toolset for the implementation of data protection and retention controls in keeping with GDPR regulatory requirements.”
Bon Secours Health System is internationally accredited by the Joint Commission International Accreditation Standards for Hospital (JCI), the leading organization in the international accreditation of hospitals for quality and patient safety. Bon Secours is renowned for the quality of its service provision coupled with a rich tradition in health care.
“By leveraging our enterprise information platform to consolidate unstructured content, Bon Secours is simplifying information access and streamlining clinical workflows for its doctors,” says Mark Groesch, director of EMEA sales for Hyland Healthcare. “With the ability to access and view all documentation from a single source, clinicians are better equipped to make more informed medical decisions.”
