Miami Children's Hospital Implements EHR System

Miami Children's Hospital has successfully transitioned to an electronic health record system that promises significant enhancements for patients and caregivers alike, according to a press release.

Internally known as PEDS (Pediatric Electronic Data System), the program captures all data related to patient care from throughout the multi-facility pediatric healthcare system, including information from radiology, the laboratory, pharmacy, inpatient care, outpatient care, rehabilitation, and urgent and emergency care all in one comprehensive system.

For the last 18 months, MCH has been working with Cerner, one of the nation's leaders in automating the healthcare industry, to ensure that the integration of PEDS was a smooth and successful one.

Families now only need to register once at either the main campus or any of the hospital's outpatient centers, and all data becomes part of a centralized record available on subsequent visits. PEDS creates a framework to enhance decision-making for clinicians, enabling access to medical data through a secure login system from any place at any time. The system automates the process of checks and balances related to allergies and prescriptions, and it alerts caregivers when a potential prescription is at odds with existing medications.
