Will Weider, CIO of Ministry Health Care, a Catholic health system with 15 hospitals, 47 clinics, a health plan, and a hospice in northern and eastern Wisconsin, tries to keep his priorities straight.

Two of the hospitals, Ministry Saint Clare's Hospital and Ministry Saint Joseph's Hospital, have already attested to Stage 1 Meaningful Use and received their bonus payments.

Now, Ministry is working on a much larger IT project: Creating a single, standardized information system across all its hospitals, based on the implementation of a GE Healthcare Centricity Enterprise EHR and management system at Saint Clare's. That hospital opened as an all-digital facility in 2005, the first in the state to fully implement a computerized physician order entry system that met the definition of the Leapfrog Group, an association of employers and other healthcare buyers focused on improving standards of care and safety.

"That's our model. We've kind of been using that as our laboratory," Weider said. "We're very proud of that hospital."
