Scripps Health: Improving Patient Care Through Integrated Technologies
Improving Patient Care Through Integrated Technologies and Streamlined Processes
Scripps Health is a private, nonprofit, integrated health system in San Diego, California that encompasses five hospital campuses, four emergency rooms and three urgent care centers. Scripps Health case managers used several disparate systems in their discharge process, including CarePort Care Management to make referrals and Epic’s electronic health record (EHR) to view relevant clinical data.
To streamline the process – and to reduce time spent logging into multiple applications, and improve patient identification accuracy – Scripps Health and CarePort Health partnered to develop a first-of-its-kind single sign-on (SSO) between Care Management and the EHR.
