IDN delays go-lives to focus on process.

Novi, Mich.-based Trinity Health is postponing a continuation of an EHR installation in its network of hospitals so it can concentrate on and improve work processes at hospitals that are already live. For example, the August 2006 installation of EHRs at St. Joseph Mercy Oakland in Pontiac, Mich. is rescheduled for March 2007.

The rollouts to date at nine hospitals are part of Trinity's Project Genesis. Trinity launched this $315-million, five-year initiative in 2003 to create a common platform for clinical information, revenue cycle and supply chain management systems among its 45 hospitals in seven states. (Editor's Note: HMT published a case history on the implementation of CPOE at Saint Mary's Health Care in Grand Rapids in July 2005.)

In the new patient care process improvement initiative launched in March, Trinity Health will develop and implement the best ways to integrate IT with the latest in evidence-based practice treatment standards and medical research.
