Caritas Chrisi's flagship hospital's St. Elizabeth's Medical Center's William Connell Pavilion houses a new state of the art emergency room in the Brighton neighborhood of Boston. Caritas Christi is New England's largest community based hospital network. Caritas recently completed the first year of a three-year, $70 million capital plan to leverage information technology to redesign care delivery. Among its IT achievements in the last 12 months, Caritas has deployed clinical information systems, including medication bar-coding and computerized physician order entry, to five of its six hospitals; deployed office-based e-health records to more than 200 community based physicians hosted in Caritas' own private cloud; and deployed athenahealth's Collector software enabled service to its entire 400+ employed physician group. Among its other ongoing work, Caritas has launched a comprehensive data analytics strategy and is creating a health data exchange using Microsoft's Amalga Unified Intelligence System and HealthVault products.
