Ochsner Health System Exec Describes Award-Winning Implementation of EMPI from Inititate Systems

Originally published November 3, 2009

Brookfield, WI  November 3, 2009 – In conjunction with the announcement of the recipients of the 2009 Vision Awards for Business Impact, Mary Jo Nott, Executive Editor of the BeyeNETWORK, interviewed Chris Belmont, System Vice President and CIO for Ochsner Health System about its award-winning submission in the data access, integration and executability category.

In this interview, Belmont describes the business drivers behind Ochsner’s adoption of Initiate Interoperable Health solution as a key component in deploying and supporting patient registration systems across the Ochsner network of hospitals and health centers. This is proving invaluable to this SE Louisiana healthcare system that is still dealing with the aftereffects of population shifts due to Hurricane Katrina as well as the acquisition of a number of health centers.

“The enterprise master person index from Initiate is a catalyst for improved interoperability and effective information exchange at Oschner Health System,” says Belmont. “We now have a single source of truth that allows us to identify our patients, connect the associated medical records and manage our data governance better.”

“The BeyeNETWORK presents the Vision Award for Business Impact each year to recognize the real value being derived from adoption of software technology. Congratulations to Ochsner and Initiate Systems for winning this award and for sharing their success story,” states Nott. “Getting healthcare right is of critical importance, and Ochsner is leading the way in providing integrated patient information and quality medical care.”
