Galway Clinic is widely recognized as one of the most-forward thinking healthcare facilities. It was the first hospital in Ireland to achieve HIMSS Stage 6 for EMR adoption, and was also the first European facility to go live with MEDITECH’s 6.x EHR platform. In keeping with this commitment to improving patient care and service through advanced technology, Galway Clinic’s leadership team is continually looking for systems that advance its transition to fully electronic patient records.
As such, Galway Clinic recognized that it had numerous third-party medical devices and clinical systems that were still generating paper output, and they were unable to get this information digitally into EHRs. Needless to say, it was challenging to get this paper-based output into electronic patient records. They chose Access to plug these gaps.
