Citrus Memorial Health System Selects McKesson’s Paragon Community HIS

Citrus Memorial Health System has chosen to upgrade its hospital information system (HIS) with McKesson’s Paragon community HIS. As part of the agreement, McKesson will remotely host the new solution for the Inverness, Florida hospital.

By CBR Staff Writer

The Paragon HIS will be the foundation of the health system’s use of McKesson solutions for document management and medical imaging. New for Citrus Memorial will be a computerized physician order entry system (CPOE), which will enable physicians to electronically submit patient orders. It will increase order efficiency and eliminate the chance for errors related to poor handwriting. Additionally, Citrus Memorial plans to connect with physicians in its outpatient clinics, using McKesson’s Practice Partner ambulatory EHR.

Jim Meister, director of information services at Citrus Memorial Health System, said: “We wanted to expand our IT strategy with a comprehensive, clinically-focused, enterprise-wide system that had maximum interoperability and offered better total cost of ownership. When the stimulus funding was announced, it provided us with an opportunity to accelerate our efforts.”

Paragon is specifically designed to address the needs of a community hospital setting. The Paragon HIS integrates critical financial and clinical solutions on a single platform. Those benefits translate into reduced training time for staff, enhanced data management and ease of deployment.
