The University of Pennsylvania Health System's new Ruth and Raymond Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine was a $302 million capital project, and features advanced medical and information technologies. Among the IT components of the new Perelman Center is an ambulatory e-medical record system to ensure that treatment decisions and patient information are kept up to date and is accessible to clinicians via the center's data network, via wireless or land-based communication. Patient information can also be instantaneously communicated between clinical care systems, including such data-intensive therapies as proton therapy and radiation oncology, which rely on highly complex and specific data. Software used by Perelman Center oncologists helps physicians create individualized patient treatment plans based on standard protocols and make treatment decisions guided by comprehensive decision support. Also, a Web-based patient portal allows Perelman Center patients to view lab reports, request medication refills, request physician referrals, and securely communicate with their physicians.

Overall InformationWeek 500 ranking: 54
