With help from Mercy Technology Services (MTS), Tupelo-based North Mississippi Health Services (NMHS) successfully launched a new Epic electronic health record (EHR) last month, rolling the system out in NMHS’ ambulatory care locations. NMHS now uses Epic across its regional network of primary and specialty clinics and nursing homes, as well as for its telehealth services.
An early adopter of electronic health record (EHR) technology, St. Louis’ Mercy health system has collected a massive amount of clinical data over the past decade, drawn from more than 11.5 million patient records. Throughout that time, Mercy Technology Services (MTS) – Mercy’s IT backbone – has been developing new ways to analyze that data, helping drive decisions that improve patient care.
Mercy Technology Services (MTS), the IT backbone for one of the largest Catholic health systems in the country, has announced a new research collaboration with global medical technology company BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company), enabling BD to use MTS’ robust clinical data platform to help evaluate and improve the effectiveness of medical devices.
