"Information technology is a tool like a stethoscope to a physician," says Doran Dunaway, GHS's vice president of information services, "and our goal is to help them become more efficient and ensure better outcomes and a safer stay for the patient."

Much of what's done at hospitals today is already computerized.About 80 percent of all medical records at GHS are electronic now, for instance, Dunaway says.
But beginning next month, GHS doctors will begin entering their orders on computer, too.That will improve the speed of service, the level of care, and safety, he says.
"From a technological standpoint, the chart is a great place for all the documentation," Dunaway says, "but the electronic chart is where the most up-to-date information is."
Because the project will involve more than 1,000 physicians and a lot of training, it will begin in cardiology and expand by specialty over next three to five years, he says.
In September, radiologists will embark on a "voice-to-text" pilot project that will enable computerized transcription, he says.
The doctor will read an MRI or other image and dictate the findings into the computer, which then digitizes the information.The physician can then review the information and sign off on it, or send it electronically to a transcriptionist for review and corrections, he says.
Dunaway says that eventually will be expanded to other departments, like the operating room.
Becoming more computerized has its advantages, but there are concerns.Without a paper trail, for example, what happens when the computer crashes?Dunaway says the system runs on multiple servers and if one goes down, another automatically picks up the load.
And securing such a vast amount of personal health information is a challenge.Dunaway allows that "no system is totally hacker proof."But, he says, GHS has installed measures that it believes best protect the data.
Meanwhile, a robotic pharmacy, along with other supportive technology designed to reduce medical errors, is slated to come online in October, Dunaway says.
"Potentially, you could grab the right medication for the wrong patient, and the computer system will help eliminate that," he says.
...
GHS has begun electronic tracking of patients and procedures in the ER, which helps get them through faster, Dunaway says, and by December expects to have another program online that will electronically document procedures and instruments in the operating room.
...
GHS plans to utilize that technology too, Dunaway says.
...
GHS has spent between $5 million and $10 million on its information technology over the past decade, says Dunaway, and the new initiatives will cost another $2 million or so.But it all has the ability to save the hospital millions of dollars through improved patient safety and other means.
The electronic form program introduced about a year ago, for instance, has cut the cost of forms from 3 cents to .005 cents apiece, he says.Now the computer produces forms on standard typewriter paper.Previously, different forms had to be stockpiled and then discarded if changes were made to them, he said.It also helps in billing, he said.
...
What could be next for health-care information technology is only limited by imagination, Dunaway says.
"We're not that far away from a time where the physician will come into the room and start talking," he says, "and a computer will pick up and record that conversation."


Rural Ohio hospital proves you don't have to work in the big city to have great PACS technology

www.agfaus.com [cached]

With the installation of the latest IMPAX® Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) network, and ADC (computed radiography systems, Doran Dunaway, GHS vice president of information services and CIO, says the flow of information through his five hospital complex will rival any hospital in the country.

Specifically, the IMPAX Enterprise System (version 4.1) that is being installed now will provide enterprise-wide management of radiology and cardiology information for GHS' facilities and associated clinics and will manage over 250,000 exams and reports annually.The PACS will archive 10 terabytes of storage per year on a storage area network.Redundant copies will be stored in tape libraries.Beyond the technology itself, Agfa specialists will work interactively with GHS staff to provide workflow analysis, project management, and in-house and corporate applications training.
"We looked at other vendors," says Dunaway, "but we came back to Agfa.Price was important.But Agfa also did their homework better.The biggest things are the functionality on the Internet and being able to see all modalities on one device.Those are huge.Agfa blew the competition away," Dunaway adds, "and, to tell you the truth, even if they weren't in our own backyard, they would have blown the competition away."

The total system, which is being installed this Spring, will be a showcase of Agfa's own vision.
