Allscripts Healthcare Solutions www.allscripts.com presented their new EHR called Avenel™ at HIMSS 2018. Avenel creates a community-wide shared patient record, uses machine learning to reduce the time needed for clinical documentation, and is designed to work like an app instead of traditional software.
“This new solution is not simply an iteration of legacy systems. It is an entirely new approach to the EHR. Our objective with Avenel is to get the technology out of the way, so clinicians can focus on the patient,” The solution integrates clinicians’ treatment patterns and provides reminders of preferences to facilitate faster documentation and decision-making,” according to Jim Hewitt EVP of Solutions Development for Allscripts.
“We wanted to create a solution that could deal with clinicians and their frustration in using EHRs, added Paul Black, CEO of Allscripts. “We spent a great deal of time meeting with clients and industry leaders to better understand why providers have been so unhappy with the first wave of EHRs.
The Avenel user interface has an app-like functionality, featuring tablet-friendly swipe-and-tap navigation with easy to configure customized dashboards which enables clinicians to reduce the time needed to writing notes.
Carlinville Area Hospital located in Carlinville, Illinois is currently using the Avenel solution in their 25 bed acute care hospital. Avenel now provides a wide range of inpatient, outpatient, and emergency services that include cardiopulmonary, imaging, laboratory and rehabilitative services.
