Teaching Hospital Uses Unified Intelligence System, Improves Education and Patient Care
Source: Microsoft Tips
Washington Hospital Center, the flagship teaching institution of the non-profit MedStar Health organization, is the largest hospital in Washington, D.C. For 50 years, Washington Hospital Center has supported accredited residency and fellowship programs, as well as undergraduate medical education. To provide high-quality healthcare to patients and exceptional training, Washington Hospital Center needed an information system that would provide rapid access to current, accurate patient data. Drs. Mark Smith and Craig Feied created Microsoft Amalga, the Unified Intelligence System that pulls patient data from over 300 separate locations into one, easy-to-use repository. Physicians and residents can now instantaneously access comprehensive patient information from any computer in the hospital, vastly improving patient care and creating a dynamic learning environment.
