Centers for advanced healthcare break ground.

The University of South Florida Health broke ground on the first of two state-of-the-art ambulatory care centers. The University of South Florida Physicians Group (USFPG) at USF Health selected more than $2 million worth of Allscripts TouchWorks electronic health records (EHRs) as part of a $15-million IT investment at the centers and beyond. USF Health will implement the EHRs at all 12 practice locations over the next year, as well as in USF's new paperless $88 million Centers for Advanced Healthcare. USFPG is the multispecialty faculty practice of USF Health's College of Medicine. The group's 415 physicians, 125 mid-level providers and nearly 200 residents care for more than 31,000 patients and oversee 396,000 outpatient visits annually throughout the Greater Tampa Bay area. The physician group also is investing $3 million in upgrading their practice management system and enhancing their patient portal, plus obtaining a picture archiving and communication system and an OR management system.

The new south clinic facility (pictured), which broke ground in March, will be a seven-story, 126,000 square foot medical office building adjacent to Tampa General Hospital. The north clinic facility, expected to break ground in the early summer, will be a six-story, 194,400 square foot building on the USF Tampa campus.
