In the years ahead, establishing an electronic health record (EHR) will be the most fundamental means for a health care provider to optimize its quality of care and organizational performance.
That’s why HCA started hCare, our company-wide initiative to establish an EHR in all affiliated facilities. With over 250 hospitals and outpatient centers in our nationwide network, hCare will be the largest and most complex EHR rollout in the country.
Quite simply, hCare will revolutionize the accessibility of critical information throughout HCA while improving quality, enhancing regulatory compliance, connecting physicians and facilities across our health care system, and ultimately ensuring that the communities we serve receive the best possible care.
The establishment of any electronic health record is a complex undertaking that requires a collective effort, and this is especially the case with a nationwide health system of our size. That’s why we are assembling a visionary team of clinicians, programmers and analysts to participate in the development and implementation of our electronic health record.
Given the challenges that accompany the deployment of hCare, along with the unique advantages offered by a career at HCA, today’s clinicians and IT workers are unlikely to find a more rewarding opportunity to combine their passions for advanced technology and outstanding patient care.
