Beacham Memorial Hospital, in Magnolia, Mississippi, needed to make patient records available electronically and save time for physicians and staff. The hospital turned to IBM and BlueWare, an IBM Business Partner, to implement the BlueWare Wellness Connection running on IBM System i with IBM DB2 Content Manager. A doctor now can use a laptop to look up patient information and the e-signature capability to digitally sign papers, orders and prescriptions from anywhere.
